Tablo Rolls Out a New Roku Channel With ‘Last Channel’ Recall & On-Screen Guide





Today the popular over the air TV DVR Tablo rolled out a new Roku Channel with the ability to quickly jump back to the last channel and an on-screen guide!

“This includes a feature that many of you have been waiting for – an on-screen guide overlay for Live TV that we call ‘Quick Channel Select’. This feature also includes a ‘Last Channel’ option to make switching between two programs easy.” Tablo said in a statement on their website.

How It Works
To bring up the ‘Quick Channel Select’ overlay, just hit the UP or DOWN button on your Roku remote during playback of Live TV.

‘Last Channel’ will appear as an option once you have tuned to two different channels. To return to the previously viewed channel, simply call up the ‘Quick Channel Select’ overlay by hitting the UP or DOWN button, and then hit the LEFT button on your Roku remote’s D-PAD.

How To Get It
Your Roku will auto-update within the coming day or so, but you can force an update by going to your Roku’s home screen then navigating to SETTINGS > SYSTEM > SYSTEM UPDATE. (Note: This build also increases the minimum supported Roku firmware to 8.0.0)
