Tablo may just be the answer to cord cutters everywhere as its methods are different and innovative enough to make this a widely accepted solution for watching, recording and managing over-the-air (OTA) TV shows.
Tablo claims it is “the first broadcast TV system designed to combine the functionality of a DVR and the convenience and mobility of a tablet app.”
I say for custom electronics professionals it is much more than that. Tablo is the first DVR - period - built for third-party integration. How so? It is accessible through Chromecast, AppleTV (through AirPlay) and Roku.
A channel on Roku provides direct control of Tablo-based content. What this means for integrators is that any system with IP-controlled Roku boxes would have full control of all Tablo’s live and recorded content via two-way home automation controllers.
