Give Dad the Gift of Free TV this Father's Day

Just because everyone else is cutting the cord doesn’t mean you should too. Among the biggest cord-cutting pain points is the lack of live content. Pairing an OTA antenna with a TV tuner affords the ability to create a DVR, alleviating that challenge. These are the best TV tuners you can buy.



With its superb hardware options, Tablo has become a go-to in the DVR space. The Tablo Dual OTA DVR is its top choice for the average cord cutter. You’ll find two tuners, easy networking with Wi-Fi and Ethernet and 64GB of storage space. Plus, it’s expandable via USB for additional storage space.

The Tablo Dual OTA DVR features intuitive set up, robust streaming apps and the lack of a paid subscription. However, standard storage fills up quickly especially when recording in high definition. Moreover, storage is a bit limited and some live channels load slowly.

Still, it’s easily the best DVR you can find. If you need four tuners, check out the Tablo Quad DVR.
