Introducing Tablo OTA Drone


Today we’re very excited to announce the latest in Tablo hardware: Tablo OTA Drone. Tablo OTA Drone combines the latest in omni-directional Over-the-Air HDTV antenna technology with a powerful quadricopter drone to provide your home with unparalleled broadcast TV reception.

Using GPS positioning and advanced automated stability controls, Tablo OTA Drone (starting at $999 US) will hover over your home, providing its integrated TV antenna with direct line-of-sight to local broadcast towers. The crystal clear, high definition digital television signals will then be beamed directly to your Tablo OTA DVR via a proprietary CoaxCast streaming connection.

Tablo OTA Drone can remain airborne for up to 18 hours with onboard solar cells, but it has been programmed to descend and recharge on a rooftop or balcony-secured charging station when tuners are not in use or when accessing broadcast towers within a 25-mile (40 KM) range that do not require additional height for optimal reception. A notification within the iOS or Android control app will let you know when maintenance is required.

Tablo Drone will be available in the ‘Fall-ish’ timeframe. Stay tuned for more details!

If you’re not yet sure if Over-the-Air HDTV TV is for you, Tablo will also be deploying a fleet of Tablo OTA Drones in major cities across the United States and Canada to help you discover which broadcast channels are available at your home.
