Nuvyyo, the makers of the Tablo Over The Air DVR today gave a preview of their new Tablo apps for the 4th Generation Apple TV and LG webOS-powered Smart TVs at CES 2016. They are calling these apps a “fully optimized for lean-back viewing” experience that allow users to discover, schedule, record and stream both live and recorded broadcast television programs on their big screen TVs.
“Over the past year, we’ve expanded our portfolio to include apps for Amazon Fire TV and Android TV along with a completely redesigned Tablo channel for Roku,” said Grant Hall, CEO at Nuvyyo, the makers of Tablo. “With Apple’s September announcement of an app store for Apple TV, as well as LG’s robust operating system for its newer generation of Smart TVs, we can now deliver Tablo’s live TV experience to these popular devices.”
With Tablo, Apple TV users will be able to enjoy live news, sports and network broadcast programs and take advantage of the slick features and stylish interface of the new Apple TV app ecosystem. And thanks to integration with Apple TV’s voice-enabled remote, Tablo also allows users to easily skip commercials simply by asking Siri to jump ahead in the stream.
Starting this spring, Tablo customers will be able to enjoy broadcast programming using both a live TV grid guide and recordings screens. Additional screens and features will be rolled out in regular post-launch updates with the goal of bringing a fully featured Tablo experience to the streaming media device of choice for Apple fans.
LG Smart TVs powered by the webOS 2.0 operating system will be the first internet-connected televisions to receive a native Tablo app. Based on Tablo’s web app, the interface provides full access to all of Tablo’s OTA TV content discovery, playback and recording functions in a format designed specifically for big screen TV viewing.
Consumers with 2014 LG Smart TVs running webOS 1.0 will also be able to enjoy this app via a free upgrade to webOS 2.0 from LG.
