Beware of limitations

Works good but you will have to subscribe to get the feature
Without the subscription the only feature you have is the ability to record. You can’t watch live tv without the subscription. The free trial is also 7 days not 30 days.
Also there is limited interface for streaming to other devices. Only specific devices allow you to stream. Check the specifications carefully. You also can’t watch via the app on your smartphone or computer.

Hi Steve - You can still watch live TV without a subscription. You'll just need to select the channel ID from the far left of the screen. And our trial period is indeed 30 days from when you first connect your Tablo. If you did not receive a full 30 days for some reason please touch base with support and we can get your trial extended:


Even better than ever!

Fills the gap

Impressed with the Tablo. After cancelling cable I wanted the option to record over the air sports events and Tablo does the trick. Between that and streaming, I'm totally covered. Great product.

Hi RDH - Thanks so much for your purchase and your review. Glad you're enjoying your Tablo!

Tablo Connect

Love, love, love my tablo and it’s connect service. We travel to fairly remote locations which often have internet, but not ota. The connect service allows us to have the same tv options that we have at home. It was a game changer for cutting the cord. Thanks for building a great product and for all the kind tech help in setting it up!

Good except recording issues

This is a nice unit. Except it will show a pop up message saying either video and/ or audio failed and will not reconnect so the recording will stop at that point! Very frustrating! Also it will do it when watching live tv. You must hit ok to return to live tv.
If the unit would automatically reconnect to keep recording and stay on during live tv it would be 5 stars. Tablo needs to address this issue.
