Today, the popular Tablo DVRs for your antenna are getting a brand new DVR with a built-in 128GB hard drive and the ability to add external hard drives for additional storage. This is a new two-tuner whole-home OTA DVR that will also now offer content recommendations.
The big new feature here is that Tablo will also add live free streaming channels into its live TV guide. There is also a new app. New Tablo apps are available on Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Android TV/Google TV, and iOS mobile platforms as well as most smart TVs and mobile devices. Apple TV, Samsung, and Vizio are expected to be added later this year.
