Tablo announces its first ATSC 3.0 OTA DVR with support for 4K and HDR video

Tablo has announced its all-new Tablo ATSC 3.0 QUAD HDMI OTA DVR. This is the company’s first product to support the new ATSC 3.0 standard that is transitioning over the air broadcast television away from 1080i video and towards 4K video. Unlike all of Tablo’s past devices, this new DVR is not a networked device for whole-home streaming of OTA content. Instead, it’s a standalone device with a remote and HDMI out, for use with a single TV, which means it’s not compatible with Fire TV devices or any streaming media player. Read more ›

Tablo’s new OTA DVR connects directly to a TV and has a remote but retains networked DVR capabilities

Tablo has announced their latest over-the-air DVR and it’s unlike any of their previous models in that it connects directly to your TV via HDMI. While all of Tablo’s devices up until now have been headless networked DVRs that are accessed through the Tablo app running on a streaming media player, smart TV, or mobile device, the new Tablo DUAL HDMI OTA DVR comes with a remote and displays the Tablo interface directly on your TV. While the point of the new device is to appeal to those wanting a single all-in-one DVR solution, it does retain some of its networked capabilities, such as streaming to other devices like Fire TVs.

Tablo gives a sneak peek of their new interface with a new Fire TV preview app

Tablo makes great networked DVRs that allow you to watch and record over-the-air programming through any Amazon Fire TV, Fire TV Stick, and Fire TV Edition television. The standard Tablo for Amazon Fire TV app has been available for years and has received welcomed improvements over that time, but Tablo is now gearing up to refresh the app with a brand new interface. If you own one of their DVRs and want a sneak peek at the new interface, they’ve just released a Tablo Preview app for you to check out. Be sure to keep the existing Tablo app installed because the preview app does not yet have all of the screens and features available through the main app.

Tablo 2-Tuner over-the-air DVR on sale for $147 — New lowest price [Expired]

The Tablo 2-tuner DVR has just gone on sale for $147. Apart from a very short one-time sale price on Black Friday in 2014, this is the new lowest price this OTA tuner has ever been. Tablo allows you to watch and record free over-the-air content using your Fire TV and the free Tablo App. You simply connect the Tablo to your network and stream live content to all of your devices. If you want to use its DVR capabilities to record content, you just need to connect external storage. Tablo just announced a new model with 64GB of built-in storage, but I recommend this model to most people because its pair of USB ports allow you to connect any size external hard drive or flash storage you want, without having to pay a premium for the limited built-in storage. The 4-tuner model has also gone on sale for a decent price of $244.99. Tablo may be clearing out stock of these two models, since they now have a new device, so this might be one of the few chances to pick up the less expensive models while they’re on sale.
