Many cord-cutters – consumers who have cancelled expensive cable or satellite contracts – use HDTV antennas to access free Over-The-Air (OTA) programming. These live, high-definition TV signals are distributed by major national television networks in most cities and towns across North America. Tablo was designed to give cord-cutters the power to record and stream this programming to all types of devices including iOS and Android tablets, smartphones and computers, as well as TVs with the help of streaming video boxes like Roku, Chromecast or Apple TV.
Unlike other OTA DVRs on the market, all Tablo DVRs include dual-band WiFi enabling Tablo and the antenna to be placed in an optimal location for signal reception. Also, by storing guide data and recordings locally, Tablo’s user-friendly apps are more responsive and fun to navigate than on-screen TV grid guides or remote-controlled interfaces.
“Cord-cutters are looking for simple solutions to help them transition away from cable and satellite and Tablo was designed with this audience in mind,” said Nuvyyo’s CEO, Grant Hall. “With the addition of the Tablo 4-Tuner DVR model, we can provide the recording and viewing capabilities that larger households are looking for.”
The MSRP for the 4-Tuner Tablo DVR is $299.99 US or $329.99 CAD and is available via the Tablo website (www.TabloTV.com) or via retail partner NewEgg.com.
