The makers of Tablo have released a new over-the-air DVR that lets viewers watch and record up to four channels at once.
The Quad HDMI marks the second OTA DVR from parent company Nuvyyo that lets viewers connect directly to a TV instead of a Wi-Fi router. The OTA DVR plugs into a HDMI port, and includes a dedicated remote control.
“The TV-connected Tablo DUAL HDMI DVR was so well received by customers that we immediately made plans to launch a Tablo QUAD HDMI for TV fans with larger families or channel lineups,” Grant Hall, CEO of Nuvyyo, said. “With this latest addition to our product family, we now offer an over-the-air DVR model to fit the needs of every cord cutter.”
Tablo QUAD HDMI OTA DVR connects to any TV antenna. It stores recordings on external USB hard drives from 1TB to 8TB. The company says the QUAD HDMI is designed to handle up to 1000 hours of HDTV recording storage.
To use the HDMI Tablo HDMI with additional TVs, viewers need to subscribe to the Tablo TV Guide Data Service. That service costs $4.99 per month or $49.99 per year.
Other models, including the Tablo DUAL Lite, and Tablo Quad DVR, don’t require a subscription to watch live TV on multiple screens.
All Tablo OTA DVRs include two 30-day free trials. New customers get to sample the Tablo TV guide data service for a month.
A subscription includes a more detailed channel guide and extra features. Subscribers get episode and series synopsis, cover art, and metadata for programs airing over the next two weeks.
All Tablo models also include a 30-day free trial of its commercial-skip service called Tablo Premium Service.
