After a successful Indiegogo campaign, Nuvyyo started shipping its whole-home Over-The-Air (OTA) DVR earlier this year. The Tablo 2-Tuner DVR is a set-top box that works in conjunction with an HDTV antenna. However, it doesn’t just record free OTA programming, but can put live and recorded TV on any device, anytime.
Once connected to your antenna, the Tablo can capture news, sports and any other programming within the U.S. and Canada. (Your reception will depend on your antenna and your location.) However, this is a “whole-home” DVR, so it can stream that content to any device connected within the house, as well as to devices with a web connection.
Besides being able to watch, pause and record live TV, the Tablo can be set to capture recordings by series or episode.
Currently, the Tablo is available as a two-tuner DVR, which can record and stream up to two different programs at the same time and allows users to watch on up to six devices simultaneously. The company is also planning to ship a four-tuner version later this month. Other features include dual-band Wi-Fi, two USB ports, and support for Apple TV, Chromecast and Roku. Also worth mentioning is that the Tablo doesn’t come with a remote control. Instead, it uses an app, which is compatible with iOS and Android devices.
The Tablo 2-Tuner DVR is available now, with an MSRP of $219.99. The 4-Tuner Tablo DVR is also available for pre-order, priced at $289.99. Each purchase comes with one free month of program guide data. After that, users need to pay $4.99 per month, $49.99 per year or $149.99 for a lifetime subscription.
