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.
