4th Generation 4-Tuner Tablo Total System Now Available

Tablo is one of several DVR boxes aiming to squeeze more value out of over-the-air TV, but the latest version tries to stand out with a built-in antenna.

Like the original Tablo, the Tablo Metro doesn’t plug directly into your television. Instead, it hooks up to your home Wi-Fi router and acts as a broadcast TV middleman, recording basic channels like CBS and Fox and beaming the video to phones, tablets and set-top boxes. But while the original Tablo required users to hook up their own antennas, the Tablo Metro has a tiny, omnidirectional antenna built right into the box.

The DVR can stream or record up to two shows at a time, even if the broadcast towers are in opposite directions. Nuvyyo, the makers of Tablo, claim that the antenna can receive signals from broadcast towers up to 25 miles away.

So far, Tablo has apps for iPad, Android tablets and Kindle Fire tablets, along with Web access on smartphones and PCs. But Nuvyyo says it’s working on a redesigned public Roku channel (the current version is a private channel) and apps for Amazon Fire TV and Android TV. These additions should make Tablo much more practical for users who want to watch recorded broadcast in the living room.
