Overall Best OTA DVR


Tablo Dual Lite OTA DVR is easily my favorite DVR. It’s easy to install, versatile, but it’s most impressive quality is its multi-room capabilities. The device connects to your network, allowing easy access to TV shows saved on Tablo from any device on the network. Tablo doesn’t require a subscription to their DVR guide, but if you want the guide, they offer both a recurring subscription or a one-time payment.

Once Tablo is connected to your router, you record and watch shows on Tablo through an app on your smart or streaming device.

There is even a function called Tablo Connect that allows access to recorded programs while you’re away from home through the Internet, WiFi, or cellular data connection. Tablo easily integrates with other cord-cutting tech making it the right choice in almost any situation. The best part is automatically skipping commercials on completed recordings via supported Tablo apps.

While there are a few different versions of the Tablo device available, I recommend the Tablo Dual Lite OTA DVR.

The Dual Lite has two tuners allowing you to watch one show while recording another or record 2 shows when not watching. If you need to record or watch more shows at once, Tablo makes a four tuner option called the Tablo Quad OTA DVR. This will allow you to watch one show while recording three or record 4 when not watching live.

Is there a DVR guide fee?
The Tablo DVR can be used without a subscription. When purchasing a Tablo DVR you are provided a free 30-day guide subscription. After the 30 day trial, you can opt not to use the guide or buy a guide subscription.
