Best new use of an over-the-air antenna: Tablo DUAL LITE
While it might not have the brand recognition of TiVo, Nuvyyo still makes the best over-the-air DVR for most people with the Tablo Dual Lite.
Tablo does not plug directly into your television, but instead streams broadcast channels through your Wi-Fi router to the Tablo app on other devices, such as Roku, Fire TV and Apple TV. That means you can set Tablo up with a single over-the-air antenna wherever reception is best and then watch all your live channels and recordings from anywhere in the house.
The Dual Lite isn’t much different from previous Tablo models, but the new hardware has better Wi-Fi connectivity and is much cheaper at $140. Factor in a hard drive and a lifetime Tablo guide subscription and you can build a whole-home DVR for just a little over $300.
