NEWS: Tablo QUAD Now Available
Yesterday we announced that our newest Over-the-Air DVR – the Tablo QUAD – was available for purchase exclusively on our updated web store for $199.99 USD or $259.99 CAD.
And less than 12 hours later, we sold out in the US. (There's still stock available in Canada though!)
The good news is that American customers can still place orders today for the next batch of Tablo QUADs which should be shipping ~April 12th.

NEWS: Apple TV, Apple TV+, and Apple TV Channels Demystified
By allowing competing hardware manufacturers to access Apple Channels and Apple TV+ both directly and via Airplay 2 on Smart TVs as well as streaming devices from Roku and Amazon Fire TV, the company is dramatically expanding the potential reach of its programming.
It'll be interesting to see how this all plays out for Apple over the coming year...
