To download the app, from the home screen of your Samsung smart TV navigate to the APPS section and then select the search icon in the top right corner. In the search field, type TABLO TV, select the dark blue Tablo app and select INSTALL.

If the app is listed on the Home menu once installed, use the remote’s directional pad to navigate to it and open it.

The app will locate and connect to your Tablo as long as it’s on the same home network as your smart TV.

You can add the TABLO app to your Samsung smart TV’s home screen by going to APPS, selecting the SETTINGS icon in the upper right corner, highlighting the TABLO app and then selecting ADD TO HOME.
