According to a survey done by Hollywood Reporter, 2.9 percent of people (5 percent of people aged 24-34) are planning to cancel their cable subscription this year in favor of internet-based alternatives. Nuvyyo, the folks that created the Tablo OTA DVR, have taken this as a signal and they’re pouncing on their opportunity to bring their product to the masses.
Nuvyyo is taking this shift by the horns by offering internet service providers (ISPs) the ability to offer over-the-air (OTA) live television to their subscribers using the Tablo infrastructure. The idea would be that ISPs would offer to install a Tablo in the customer’s home during the time of internet installation and Nuvyyo will allow the ISP to accept payment on behalf of them so that the customer only has one bill to worry about. The cost to the customer is still far cheaper than paying for cable television and the ISP gets to offer another service with little cost to them, it’s win-win!
