Tablo Cloud DVR Service

Record Over-the-Air TV Programs in the Cloud

Owners of the Tablo DUAL LITE OTA DVR can add Tablo Cloud DVR service to their active Tablo TV Guide Data Subscription to record Over-the-Air TV programs without the need to connect a USB hard drive for storage.  

Tablo Cloud DVR Service Subscription

All new and refurbished Tablo DUAL LITE OTA DVRs come with a free 30-Day trial of our TV Guide Data and Cloud DVR Service.

Once enabled in the Tablo app's settings screen, Tablo Cloud DVR Service lets cord cutters record up to 64 GB (approximately 40 hours of TV) right out of the box, instead of connecting a USB hard drive for recording storage.

After the first 30 days, you can choose to subscribe and continue recording programs with Tablo's Cloud DVR Service or switch to a compatible USB hard drive.  






$4.99 USD

$5.99 CAD



An active Tablo TV Guide Data Subscription is required for users of the Tablo Cloud DVR Service after the free 30-day trial.
Tablo Cloud DVR Service is tied to a specific DVR device and is not transferrable. 

You can choose to discontinue the Cloud DVR Service at any time. Previously completed cloud DVR recordings will continue to be viewable for 30 days AFTER cancellation.

All Tablo Cloud DVR Service subscriptions are billed monthly, even if users have an annual or lifetime TV Guide Data Subscription.
