This in-home box system allows users to use wireless Internet connections to stream network-broadcast shows to Internet-connected devices. This means a Tablo box can go anywhere in the home–well, anywhere with a power source. Customers have a choice of paying either a $5-per-month subscription fee, or $150 for life.
Pros: Flexibility. And the review site Digital Trends calls it a “slick device with a sweet interface.”
Cons: Doesn’t connect directly to an existing television, so an additional device–say a Roku or Apple TV–is required to view programming intercepted by a Tablo-connected antenna.
Secret weapon: Doesn’t limit users to watching at home.
