Tablo Q&A – What Will Happen When My Legacy Tablo Gets New Firmware?

Today’s question is from Darryl who asks, “What happens when my Tablo DUAL LITE gets the new firmware update to use the new apps? Can I still use the old apps if I want to use Tablo Connect?”

In case you missed it, this week we announced a brand new Tablo device and app experience.

While nothing is changing for existing Tablo customers now, legacy network-connected Tablo devices like Darryl’s DUAL LITE will be able to use these fully redesigned Tablo apps after a firmware update coming later this year.

The firmware update won’t disable access to current features like Tablo Connect through legacy Tablo apps, so Darryl will still be able to use his Tablo as he does now. 

The firmware update will simply give current Tablo customers with legacy network-connected devices the opportunity to try out the new app experience and switch to it if they like it.

You can read more about this on the Tablo Support Portal.
