The E.W. Scripps Company has released a new Tablo device that’s designed to make it easy to watch and record over-the-air TV programs from ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC without the need for a live TV plan or streaming subscription.
Scripps purchased the maker of Tablo, Nuvyyo, in 2022, and this latest Tablo DVR is the first product to be announced under the new ownership.
Priced at $99.95, and available to buy now from TabloTV.com and Best Buy, the new device is a whole-home solution. In other words, after connecting a TV antenna, the device is able to deliver live and recorded TV wirelessly to any screen in the home.
The new Tablo device features 50+ hours of onboard recording storage and two tuners, and comes bundled with an optional indoor TV antenna.
In addition to ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, ION, Bounce, PBS, and the CW, the unit is also able to provide access to a curated selection of free ad-supported streaming TV (FAST) channels as well. All of which is accessible through an enriched TV guide and, again, without any additional subscriptions or monthly costs.
The new Tablo device is able to do all of this thanks to Tablo apps, which can be downloaded on various devices. Once installed on a device, the app unlocks access to the ability to watch, pause and record network broadcast TV as well as the FAST channels.
Right now, apps are currently available to download on Amazon Fire TV, Android TV/Google TV, and Roku, as well as most smart TVs and mobile devices.
According to the company, apps are also currently due to be released for Apple TV players, Samsung TVs and Vizio TVs later this year.
