An official Tablo app for the Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick has just been released. If you’re not familiar with Tablo, it allows you to stream and record free Over-The-Air (OTA) HD channels to any number of Android and iOS devices, which now includes the Fire TV and Fire TV Stick. You simply connect their 2-Tuner or 4-Tuner DVR to your home network and any HDTV Antenna. Similar to how Slingbox allows you to stream your cable subscription to your Fire TVs and other devices, Tablo allows you to do the same with your locally broadcasted networks like NBC, CBS, ABC, and more. Services like Sling TV have said from the beginning that they won’t be including local channels in their service lineup because there will always be better and cheaper ways to view such channels than with a monthly subscription. Tablo is one of those ways and, with the release of this new app, is the best way to view free local channels on a Fire TV or Fire TV Stick.
