Introduces Tablo Over-the-Air (OTA) DVR-Based Service Offerings for Regional Broadband Operators
LAS VEGAS—April 13, 2015 — Building upon the successful launch of the Tablo Over-The-Air (OTA) DVR in the consumer space, Nuvyyo today announced the expansion of its market focus to include regional broadband operators seeking an easy-to-deploy multi-screen video offering for their internet customers. By simply setting up a digital antenna, Tablo OTA DVR and streaming device during customer installations, ISPs can capture free OTA HDTV signals and provide live and recorded broadcast TV network programming to customers as a complement to existing internet and VoIP services. As part of this solution, Nuvyyo will also provide ISPs with turnkey Tablo management servers and billing APIs.
“Tablo uses our customer’s home WiFi network to deliver video content from HDTV antennas to TVs, tablets and mobile devices throughout the home,” said Travis Carter, VP Technology at US Internet, a Minnetonka, Minnesota-based ISP currently trialing the Tablo OTA DVR solution. “A major advantage over bandwidth-intensive internet-based video streaming options, this architecture also scales easily to an unlimited number of our FTTH customers with minimal effort and upfront costs.”
“Rising costs for bloated cable TV contracts and customer service woes are leading consumers to abandon major cable providers,” said Grant Hall, CEO at Nuvyyo. “Regional ISPs have a unique opportunity to acquire these customers if they are able to offer an attractive blend of internet, voice and video services at a competitive price point. We believe our HDTV solution enabled by Tablo OTA DVR technology helps them achieve this.”
In addition to a unique whole-home approach to delivering live and recorded Over-the-Air HDTV content, Tablo’s app ecosystem provides a beautiful and straightforward Netflix-style interface. Browsing, setting recordings and playback controls are intuitively organized on smartphones, tablets, PC/Mac as well as through HDMI streaming devices including Roku, Amazon Fire TV and Android TV.
