So sad 😞

Unfortunately, TabloTV doesn't work with my Samsung Smart TV. I had to plug into a Roku which loses resolution and about 1500 channels. It's in the original box. 😔

Hi there, we're sorry to hear that you're experiencing difficulties with our Tablo (4th Generation) Over-the-Air [OTA] DVR. We want to assure you that our product is compatible with most Samsung Smart TVs manufactured from 2019 onward. However, if your Samsung TV is older, you can still use a compatible streaming device to access our DVR. We hope this helps and please don't hesitate to reach out if you need further assistance. Thank you for your feedback and we hope to improve your experience in the future.

TABLO Went Above and Beyond

For the first time in over 2 decades I decided to get rid of cable TV because the cost of keeping it was raising year after year and the value was no longer worth the reward, so I began shopping around for a typical TV antenna. My first purchase was a basic flex tv antenna which only allowed me to watch like 17 channels so my search began once again. I was growing frustrated when an AD for TABLO popped up on my screen, I liked what they had to say; however, I was skeptical because nothing is generally as people say they are, but, I made the purchase and was so glad I did. After the TABLO was installed I scrolled and scrolled the guide and stopped scrolling before seeing all the channels I had. I can honestly say that TABLO is just as good as my cable ever was and I would recommend TABLO to anyone, even those who still have cable. If I knew TABLO was this good I would have canceled my cable years ago just to save money.
If you have internet and cable together like I did you are still money ahead by canceling, going with TABLO, and finding g a less expensive cable provider in your area.
Thank you TABLO for putting out such a great product!

Tablo complications

Had I known you had to download the Tablo App on each TV I would not have purchased it. My 3 Vizio's and 1 Insignia cannot download the Tablo App. I thought downloading it on my smartphone was all that was needed. Now I have to deal with returning it.

Hi - while we are not yet working on a Vizio app for Tablo, you can access the Tablo app through a streaming media player like an Amazon Firestick or Roku. If you want to be the first to know when new technology & services are available, we encourage you to join our newsletter at TabloTV.com. If you need additional assistance, reach out to our support team on our website. They'd be happy to assist you!
