NEWS: Meet Tablo DUAL LITE!
Earlier this week we announced the newest addition to the Tablo OTA DVR lineup - Tablo DUAL LITE.
DUAL LITE delivers everything cord cutters love about the Tablo DUAL 64GB model, but with the savings and flexibility to choose the storage option that works best for them... including a new Tablo Cloud DVR option which is currently in beta. Best of all, the new Tablo DUAL LITE is just $139.99 US, so it's also light on the wallet!

CANADIAN CORNER: DAZN Loses NFL Exclusive, Gains MLB
It's been an up and down week for the sports streaming service DAZN.
Yesterday word came down that DAZN lost exclusive rights to NFL Sunday Ticket in Canada. The package will again be available via satellite and cable operators, mostly because fans complained of poor experiences with the new service.
Then earlier today DAZN announced that it's adding the MLB Network which provides live access to over 200 live games over the coming baseball season.
Streaming live sports is quite difficult, especially when fans demand ultra high definition quality. Hopefully DAZN can continue to improve their infrastructure, and grow their list of partnerships over the coming years.
We hope you enjoyed this edition of Cord Cutting This Week!
