All of Tablo's apps are powered by TV guide data.

Users with subscriptions will be able to discover and easily set recordings for programs airing over the next 14 days, instead of just the next 24 hours for those who opt out of a subscription.

 

With or without a subscription, you’ll be able to see a full 24 hours of programming within the Live TV grid view.

From here you can also play live TV and set recordings.

All Tablo users have access to the scheduled view which shows all of your scheduled recordings, whether or not there is an airing in the next 14 days. 

From here you can also unschedule specific airings and resolve scheduling conflicts.

All users also have access to the recordings view which shows and allows you to start playback of all of the completed recordings on your Tablo. 

Subscribers will have access to additional sort and filter options on most apps including TV Shows, Movies and Most Recent.

Tablo subscribers have access to custom views and filters that make it easy to discover your favorite programs and new shows including:

  • Prime Time, Movies, & Sports
  • Premiering, New (airing for the first time), & Genre (comedy, drama, children etc.)

Both subscribers and non-subscribers have the ability to create Manual Recordings, however this is the ONLY way for non-subscribers to set programs to record. 

Manual recordings are set by date/time/channel on a one-time or repeating schedule.

 

A full guide data subscription provides episode and series synopses so you can learn what a show is about, or know whether or not you've already seen a particular episode. 

When browsing, cover art for programs creates the beautiful Netflix-style guide in the Tablo app. Without a subscription, program tiles within all apps will revert to simple blue tiles with text.

Have a ‘can’t miss’ show or want to start an archive of Simpsons reruns?

Record by series, available for subscribers only, makes this a snap.

You can choose to record ALL airings of that program or ALL NEW to just get episodes that have been previously unaired. 

Available for subscribers only, Tablo's advanced recording options provide more flexible scheduling and recording management capabilities including:

  • Adjust Start/Stop Time - Start recordings up to 10 mins early and end as much as 3 hours after the scheduled program time
  • Keep X Recordings - Retain all episodes or only a select number of airings
  • Recording Channel Selector - Choose which channel to record from if multiple channels are airing a favorite program

Tablo's out-of-home streaming service - Tablo Connect - lets you access live and recorded TV from your network-connected Tablo via paired devices anywhere in the world.

It is a subscriber-only feature and is not compatible with TV-Connected Tablo DVRs

For TV-connected Tablo DVRs like Tablo DUAL HDMI, in-home streaming to up to two secondary televisions is a subscriber-only feature. 

This allows you to stream live or recorded TV from your TV-connected Tablo DVR to streaming set-top-boxes and Smart TVs running the following operating systems:

  • Roku
  • Amazon Fire TV
  • Android TV

If you have a network-connected Tablo DVR, streaming within the home does not require a subscription. 

Tablo Guide Data FAQs

Have questions about your Tablo guide data subscription?
We can help!

The Live TV grid guide will always show 24 hours of data. The additional 13 days are split up into the Prime Time, TV Shows, Movies and Sports tabs.

Tablo customers with a TV Guide Service subscription using Roku, Amazon Fire TV, and Android TV devices can now enable a full 14-day live TV grid in the settings screen.

A 14-day Live TV Grid is standard on TV-Connected Tablo DVRs with active TV Guide Data Service subscriptions. 

Make sure your Tablo subscription is active and associated with your Tablo within the settings screen of your Tablo app.

Contact Tablo Support with the zip/postal code you used to set up your Tablo and the list of affected channel(s) to have this corrected.
