The OTA DVR for Apple TV

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. Tablo streams them from your TV antenna to your Apple TV over your home network. Check out our handy OTA TV Signal Locator 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 streaming services like YouTubeTV?

Tablo delivers live and recorded local TV programming for free, versus streaming TV providers like YouTube TV which cost significantly more. Enjoy live events, hometown news and sports, and your favorite network sitcoms and dramas live, without having to pay $65+ per month or use up your internet data cap.

All Your Favorite Shows, One Remote

Tablo OTA DVRs make it easy cord cutters to watch and record live, local broadcast TV programs on the device they already use to enjoy Netflix and other streaming TV apps.

By adding the Tablo app to your Apple TV, you can catch up on your favorite network shows as they air, without having to switch inputs on the TV or pick up a different remote.
