Tablo will be moving into a new neighborhood this spring if all goes as planned. Apple TV’s App Store. Along with LG Apple TV is set to be the next home of the Tablo app which uses apps to distribute recorded content from a physical DVR to TV’s and wireless devices in the home and even remotely. Tablo is different from many DVR’s because the device itself can be set up in a spot in the home where the best antenna signal is available and be connected to set top boxes from other parties like Roku, Fire TV and Android TV devices.
The Apple TV App is a long time coming for the company. It has wanted to be available to Apple TV customers since we first spoke with them in April of 2014. In a release on its website Tablo says the app should be available in the spring of 2016 and will be worth waiting for and that it will allow users to utilize Apple TV’s voice controls to skip commercials on request.
LG TV’s will be the first Smart TV’s with a Native Tablo App which will be based on the companies web based app but designed for big screen viewing. Both announcements should be great for cord cutters as more interesting OTA channels launch.
