Over-The-Air DVR Makes it Easy for TV Lovers to Enjoy Free HDTV on Any Device
International CES, Las Vegas, NV — January 6, 2014 — Nuvyyo today announced the pre-order availability of Tablo, the new DVR that lets cord-cutters access free local HDTV broadcast programs on any device, anytime, anywhere in the world — without the expense or commitment of cable or satellite contracts. In its first public appearance, Tablo can be seen and experienced hands-on at CES Booth #75101 in the Eureka Park TechZone. Pre-orders are now being accepted directly through the Tablo website at www.tablotv.com with units expected to ship in February.
The perfect accompaniment to over-the-top (OTT) streaming video, Tablo delivers live and recorded Over-The-Air (OTA) programming to any connected device, for a crystal clear HDTV viewing experience.
“With hundreds of thousands of households cutting the cable cord each year, many are looking for a simple, cost-effective solution to supplement their Over-The-Top programming from Netflix and Hulu with live television,” said Grant Hall, CEO at Nuvyyo. “Tablo gives TV lovers the DVR functionality they know with a vastly superior tablet interface to access free local HDTV programs whenever they want on whatever device they prefer.”
How Tablo Works
The Tablo DVR plugs into any HDTV antenna to capture free broadcast network programming including news and sports within the United States and Canada. Unlike traditional DVRs that are plugged into one TV, Tablo is a whole-home DVR that streams live and recorded HDTV content to any connected device inside your home as well as anywhere you have internet.
Tablo takes the fear out of cord-cutting by making it easy to browse, record and stream live, local TV broadcast programs in full HD quality. Key features include:
- Watch, pause and record live HDTV: Skip commercials, schedule recordings by series (only new episodes or all episodes), or by episode and manage existing recordings
- Record/Stream two different programs simultaneously: Two OTA Tuners (4 Tuner version available Q2 2014)
- Unlimited Local Storage for Recordings: Two USB ports, each support external hard drives up to 2 TB
- Intuitive Touchscreen Program Guide: Browse and search with a keyboard, not a remote
- Compatible with all mobile devices: Native apps for Apple and Android tablets; HTML5 app for smartphones and computers
- Watch on the big screen TV: Works with AppleTV, Roku or Chromecast* (*Pending SDK release)
- Flexible setup: Embedded WiFi for connecting to the router wirelessly if required
The Tablo DVR unit is controlled by a tablet app interface. In the box you’ll find:
- Tablo DVR
- Small antenna
- 3’ Ethernet cable
- Power Supply
