Love, we can watch, pause, and record our local channels without the overhead of cable or satellite!

Love this device

I love the Tablo. It works perfectly, smoothly, and easily on all of our devices. I bought the old version to get support for the AppleTV, and that is an excellent app. It is even getting better reception than the old DVR I had from ChannelMaster!


Have not received


It is horrible. The box downloaded software that caused an error making the unit inoperable. Customer service is nonexistent. I am dumbfounded that they can do business this way. So disappointing.

We love this

This was so easy to set up. It worked right away, and we immediately canceled Dish.
