Hard core cord-cutters and those looking join their ranks will be happy to hear about the latest products in Nuvyyo’s Tablo line. The Canadian manufacturer announced two new offerings at CES on Wednesday, plus a cloud-DVR proof-of-concept that will make it easier to slash the cost of TV entertainment.
Install the $99 Tablo Live ‘Antenna anywhere’ Stick wherever you get the strongest reception from broadcast TV towers and it will pull in high-definition TV that you can then stream over your Wi-Fi network to all of the smartphones, tablet, smart TVs and set-top boxes inside your home. Nuvyyo expects to ship the Tablo Live Stick in the second quarter of 2017.
Android TV owners will soon have an opportunity to record over-the-air broadcasts, thanks to Tablo Droid, a software DVR. All you’ll need to do is plug a USB tuner into an Android set-top box and download the app. Should your Androd TV run out of storage, you’ll be able to record to an external USB hard drive.
In its early days, the software will only work with the Nvidia Shield Android TV and either Nuvyyo’s own Tablo Tuner or Hauppauge’s WinTV-dualHD USB tuner, but Nuvyyo promises broader compatibility down the road.
