The Dual LITE is the latest OTA DVR from Tablo and it offers a two-tuner DVR with built-in 802.11ac Wi-Fi for $139.99 (CAD$179.99).
The box syncs up to Tablo’s app and allows you to stream the content you record to any of your devices, including your Smart TV powered by Roku, Amazon Fire TV, or Android TV; a set-top box/streaming media device like a Roku Streaming Stick+ or Apple TV, the Nvidia SHIELD, Xbox One or an HDMI-enabled computer.
The problem Tablo seeks to solve is giving the folks who cut the cord the ability to record shows now that they’re free from the grips of the cable company.
It does this by connecting to an HDTV antenna to grab over-the-air signals from your local station and storing any show you select to an external hard drive. Once your show is recorded, you can then stream it to any of the devices listed above.
Tablo’s range of devices attempt to return the functionality of recording shows back to the folks who’ve cut the cord – and the Dual LITE is doing it at the lowest price to date.
