Tablo Announces a New Line of Cord-Cutting Friendly Software & DVRs

Nuvyyo, the maker of Tablo DVRs, announced a new line of Tablo OTA devices, software, and services.

“Since 2013, Nuvyyo has been focused on making Tablo the defacto app for live TV on the widest variety of internet-connected screens,” said Grant Hall, Nuvyyo CEO. “Today’s announcements strengthen that commitment and provide consumers with even more choice in how they watch and record Over-the-Air HDTV.”

Tablo DROID Android-Based Software DVR

Ever wish you could get a Tablo DVR with an HDMI port to your TV? Tablo DROID software brings the user-friendly Tablo interface to powerful Android TV-based streaming devices starting with the Nvidia Shield. By connecting a USB OTA tuner and an antenna to the Nvidia Shield and downloading the Tablo DROID DVR app, TV fans will be able to discover, watch, and record live HDTV on their Android set-top box without the need for Tablo OTA DVR hardware.

With Tablo DROID, recordings are saved to the Nvidia Shield’s hard drive or to a separate USB-connected drive if additional storage is required. Tablo DROID will be compatible with Tablo TUNER, a new dual-tuner USB dongle or the Hauppauge WinTV-dual HD USB tuner stick.

The Tablo DROID app will be free to download from the Google Play store and will include a free 30-day trial of Tablo’s guide data subscription. After the trial, users can continue to watch live TV and set manual recordings without a subscription or they can choose to enjoy a full 14 days of guide data and one-click recording functions for $3.99/month.

Nuvyyo plans to release the Tablo DROID app to the Google Play store and make the Tablo TUNER stick available for purchase via the Tablo webstore in the second quarter of 2017.

Tablo LIVE “Antenna Anywhere” Stick
The Tablo LIVE “antenna anywhere” stick is a single-tuner Wi-Fi device that turns any OTA antenna into a smart antenna, enabling cord cutters to distribute OTA HDTV programming over their home network via Wi-Fi. With Tablo LIVE, consumers can place their antenna anywhere in their home to ensure the best possible positioning for OTA reception and watch live HDTV programming via Tablo apps (www.tablotv.com/apps) on mobile devices and streaming set-top boxes.

Apps for Tablo LIVE will have a user-friendly interface and allow consumers to browse an onscreen 24-hour grid guide with episode and series details and launch live broadcast TV streams. Tablo LIVE apps will be free to download and it does not require a guide data subscription.

The Tablo LIVE “antenna anywhere” stick is expected to be available in the second quarter of 2017 with an anticipated MSRP of $99 USD.

Tablo CLOUD DVR Storage

Tablo announced a new proof-of-concept Cloud DVR option. Tablo CLOUD DVR storage is designed to be used with the Tablo LIVE “antenna anywhere” stick to add online recording storage and DVR functionality. Tablo CLOUD will be subscription based and offer a set number of hours of cloud DVR storage for a monthly fee. Pricing, plans, and availability will be announced at launch.
