The CES floor officially opens up today as everyone finally gets to access the show floor; however, yesterday it was press day at CES and it was full of big news for cord cutters.

Here is a short look at everything cord cutting that was announced at CES yesterday.

Roku TVs

TCL has long been the flagship manufacturer of Roku TVs. Now it looks like it is working hard to keep that title as a growing list of new Roku TV manufacturers hit the market.

In 2017 a total of 25 new TCL Roku TVs are coming to the North American market across three series—C, P, and S—with even better picture, sound, design, and content than before. TCL’s C and P series meet the highest standards for content with stunning picture quality via Dolby Vision. Using Dolby’s universal HDR solution, these sets will support both Dolby Vision and generic HDR (HDR10), providing consumers maximum choice when it comes to content.

Mohu AirWave Antenna

Mohu today launched a new antenna called AirWave at CES. Mohu calls this the industry’s first-of-its-kind wireless over-the-air (OTA) and over-the-top (OTT) device that integrates live, local broadcast TV with free streaming channels across popular streaming devices including Apple TV, Roku, Fire TV, Android, and iOS.

“At Mohu, our mission is to continue evolving and improving the cord cutting viewing process for consumers,” said Mark Buff, founder and CEO of Mohu. “Watching TV should be a personalized experience for every viewer, and we know consumers have a lot of options and preferences about how they view TV without cable. In order to simplify the viewing process for consumers, we’ve created a product that not only gives open access to OTA content but also integrates and organizes OTT streaming video through a seamless all-in-one interface.”

Tablo DVRs & New Software

Nuvyyo, the maker of the Tablo DVRs today announced a new line of Tablo OTA devices, software, and services.

“Since 2013, Nuvyyo has been focused on making Tablo the defacto app for live TV on the widest variety of internet-connected screens,” said Grant Hall, CEO at Nuvyyo. “Today’s announcements strengthen that commitment and provide consumers with even more choice in how they watch and record Over-the-Air HDTV.”

Tablo LIVE “Antenna Anywhere” Stick
The Tablo LIVE “antenna anywhere” stick is a single-tuner Wi-Fi device that turns any OTA antenna into a smart antenna, enabling cord cutters to distribute OTA HDTV programming over their home network via Wi-Fi. With Tablo LIVE, consumers can place their antenna anywhere in their home to ensure the best possible positioning for OTA reception and watch live HDTV programming via Tablo apps (www.tablotv.com/apps) on mobile devices and streaming set-top boxes.
