4th Generation 4-Tuner Tablo Total System Now Available

The latest Tablo news along with tips to maximize your free TV experience. 

Now Available – Tablo Web Apps for Smartphones


Just over a year ago, we were ramping up to introduce Tablo to the world. We had a product name, a beta-ready product and a handful of assumptions about how people would use it. Back then, we guessed most users would watch Tablo content on tablets and on TVs via Roku or Apple TV… (And eventually this thing called Chromecast that was brand spankin’ new…) We also made a Tablo Web App to be used on computers.

But we never really thought people would regularly use their smartphone to watch TV programs from their Tablo and figured the web app would work quite well for most smartphone users.

While we were right about the numbers of folks watching Tablo via Roku and tablets, we misjudged the amount of people who would be interested in watching TV on their phones.

This is why we’ve taken the initiative to morph our web app into something that can be downloaded from the app store and that will play nice with your smartphone. While we work on perfecting a native smartphone experience, you’ll now more easily be able to browse, record and watch awesome Tablo content while you’re on the go.

Starting today you can download the Tablo web-based smartphone apps for iOS and Android devices from their respective app stores. (If you’re having trouble finding the app on the Google Play store, search ‘Tablo web’ or just use the handy link at TabloTV.com/apps.)

The apps are available for all iPhones running iOS7+ and all Android phones, phablets and tablets running Android 4.1+. Unfortunately, the Android smartphone web app cannot support Chromecast at this time but it will be coming soon. Stay tuned!

Here’s what it looks like:
