4th Generation Tablo App for Samsung and LG Smart TVs Now Available

Four hybrid tuners allow viewers to receive both ATSC 1.0 and 3.0 signals

LAS VEGAS—At CES 2022, Tablo, a company that specializes in over the air broadcast TV DVRs, announced its first ATSC 3.0 OTA DVR at CES 2022 this week. The QUAD HDMI OTA DVR features four hybrid Tablo ATSC 3.0 QUAD HDMI tuners, offering OTA viewers the ability to receive both ATSC 1.0 and 3.0 standards.

ATSC announced this week that nearly 50% of U.S. households are now within reach of an ATSC 3.0 signal with a flurry of deployments announced in the waning days of 2021, including launches in Top 10 markets Los Angeles and Washington D.C. The association will provide a progress report and look ahead to 2022 at CES 2022 tonight.

The Tablo ATSC 3.0 QUAD HDMI, which is an update to its QUAD HDMI OTA DVR that it released last year, connects directly to any modern TV via HDMI and provides the intuitive Tablo DVR interface.  In addition to the new hybrid tuners, the QUAD HDMI also includes new decoding software to support ATSC 3.0’s audio and video codecs, guaranteeing that all unencrypted video and audio content—including 4K High Dynamic Range (HDR) and Dolby AC-4 Surround Sound where available—will be passed through to the television connected to the Tablo ATSC 3.0 QUAD HDMI, the company said.

Up until now, the market for NextGen TV set-top boxes has been limited and only Sony, Samsung, LG (and now Hisense) have offered NextGen TV-capable TVs to U.S. consumers. Since ATSC 3.0 is not backward-compatible, set-tops provide a gateway for consumers to enjoy ATSC 3.0 broadcasts without having to upgrade their TVs.
