NEWS: Two New Storage-Included Over-The-Air DVRs from Tablo
Earlier this week Tablo introduced new storage included versions of our popular 2 and 4-tuner DVR models.
The new Tablo DUAL 128GB DVR has two Over-the-Air TV tuners and space to record up to 80 hours of HD programming thanks to 128GB of built-in recording storage.
The new Tablo QUAD 1TB DVR has four Over-the-Air TV tuners and space to record up to 700 hours of HD programming on its factory-installed, pre-formatted, and tested 1TB SATA drive.
The team at AFTVNews.com says, "The cost premium of the 128GB flash storage in the Tablo DUAL is only $20 over the no storage model and the cost of the 1TB drive in the Tablo QUAD is only $40 over the no storage model. That’s less than it would cost you to buy a 1TB 2.5″ drive yourself and Tablo should be commended for that."
Both models are available now exclusively on TabloTV.com.

Q&A: YouTube TV is Getting Too Expensive... What Are My Options?
Send us your most pressing cord cutting questions via email so we can answer them in an upcoming issue.
This week's question comes from Adam who says, "I'm done with YouTube TV and their constant price hikes but I still need ABC, NBC, FOX, and CBS, cable news, and maybe sports when they come back. Is there a way to stream live TV that won't keep getting more expensive? I'd hate to go back to cable."
Adam isn't alone. A lot of folks who cut the cord in the last couple of years jumped on the YouTube TV bandwagon, happy to stream live local and cable channels for a fraction of the cost of cable. But since its launch in 2017, the service's cost has ballooned by 85%, with the latest increase pushing it to $65/month starting July 31st.
