Hidden Hardware Costs with Cable/Satellite/TiVo OTA
Cable and satellite DVR hardware may seem free or low-cost at first glance. Same goes for TiVo’s ‘$50’ OTA DVR. But when you look at the small print, these hardware costs are either rolled into your cable bill through set up and installation charges or rental fees and, in the case of TiVo, subsidized through bloated monthly subscription rates, with minimum 1 year commitments and penalties for early cancellation. This can really add up when you do the math .
Why do we ask how many TVs you have hooked up to cable? Well, they charge you for that too.
When comparing costs for cable or satellite, or even TiVo’s OTA DVR, it’s also important to note that the advertised price is often service for a single TV only. Adding service to multiple TVs and mobile devices incrementally increases your rental and service fees with each additional digital converter, set top box, DVR and/or streaming device. You simply can’t get the whole-home experience from your cable provider or TiVo without additional proprietary hardware costs and/or fees.
Tablo is a Whole-Home OTA DVR
Tablo is a true Whole-Home OTA DVR that connects to your WiFi network instead of your TV. It easily connects to devices you already have on your network. One Tablo OTA DVR is all you need to stream live and recorded HDTV to your:
Amazon Fire TV
Because it’s network-based, Tablo doesn’t connect to your TV directly. By using popular low-cost HDMI devices like Roku, Chromecast, and AppleTV to get OTA content to each big screen TV, Tablo offers a compelling and affordable whole-home OTA DVR solution that is compatible with your existing home entertainment setup.
Which Channels Can I Get for Free?
High-definition TV signals are broadcast by major national television networks in most cities and towns in North America, including ABC, CBS, NBC, and Fox in the United States and CBC, CityTV, CTV and Global in Canada. Check out our handy HDTV Channel Search Tool to find out which channels are broadcast in your area!
What's the picture quality like?
Cable operators compress their TV signals to conserve bandwidth in order to deliver multiple services (phone, TV and internet) over a single connection. Over-the-Air (OTA) HDTV signals received through antennas are uncompressed, delivering an incredibly crisp HD picture far superior to what you've been getting from your cable provider.
Why can't I just use Netflix/Hulu/Amazon?
Tablo delivers live, local HDTV broadcast programs you can't get through Over-The-Top (OTT) internet content providers like Hulu and Netflix. Catch up on hometown news and sports and watch your favorite network shows live without having to wait until the next day AND without the pricey cable bill.
Tablo lets you browse, record and watch free HDTV broadcast signals... And it doesn't connect directly to your TV using HDMI, so one Tablo streams to any screen, inside or outside your home!
