Tablo has just updated their web app with v. 1.8.7. Tablo App Update v. 1.8.6 includes bug fixes and performance improvements, along with providing support for the Automatic Commercial Skip feature.
This is the same update that Tablo released for Android and iOS devices earlier this week. With the web app updated, Tablo users can now use the Auto Skip feature on each of those devices. Automatic Commercial Skip is not yet available on apps for LG or Samsung smart TVs, Xbox, or Windows 10.
What is Automatic Commercial Skip?
With the Tablo Premium Service, users have access to the Automatic Commercial Skip feature. When the feature is enabled, most recordings will play back without ads.
How Automatic Commercial Skip Works
According to the Tablo website, once Automatic Commercial Skip is enabled within the settings screen of a compatible Tablo app, your Tablo DVR will upload a small portion of eligible completed recordings to the Tablo Commercial Skip Server for processing.
A hybrid of digital signal processing (DSP) algorithms and machine learning will examine the data and mark the sections containing commercials (in yellow).
When a recording has been processed successfully, a new playlist will be delivered back to your Tablo that will automatically jump over the ads.
Using Auto Skip on the Web App
To disable Tablo Automatic Commercial Skip on a per-recording basis from within the playback screen, toggle the Commercial Skip icon in the bottom right.
