Frequently asked questions

Do I need internet to use Tablo?

Yes. You do need internet access to use Tablo. Like many modern gadgets, Tablo is a network-connected device, designed to have consistent high-speed internet access and will not function without it.

What devices can I use to set up my Tablo?

To set up your Tablo you’ll need an iOS or Android smartphone or tablet.

What smart devices are compatible with Tablo for viewing and managing live TV and recordings?

Tablo is compatible with streaming devices (sticks and boxes) and smart TVs from Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Android TV/Google TV, Apple TV*, Samsung*, LG* and Vizio*, as well as smartphones and tablets running iOS and Android.

*COMING SOON

When will the Apple TV and Smart TV ( Samsung, LG and Vizio) apps be available?

We are hoping to launch the Apple TV and smart TV applications as soon as possible. Apple TV is in beta testing now and will be the first to launch.

If your smart TV is not currently compatible, you can still use the 4th generation Tablo by connecting any compatible streaming device to your television.

Does Tablo require a subscription?

No. There are no subscriptions, contracts, or hidden fees with Tablo whatsoever. Programming from your TV antenna as well as the 40+ included internet-based streaming channels are absolutely free and there is no cost to enjoy any Tablo apps, features, or guide data.

What hard drives are compatible with Tablo if I want to increase recording storage capacity?

Tablo devices come with up to 50 hours of onboard HD storage. However, you can choose to connect a portable USB hard drive (USB 2.0 or 3.0) between 1TB and 8TB in size for up to 1000 hours of additional storage capacity. See the Tablo Support Portal for details and recommendations.

Can I watch or record cable/satellite or streaming services with Tablo?

No. Tablo is designed to stream and record broadcast TV from antennas as well as included free TV streaming channels. It does not support viewing or recording from streaming services like Netflix for Sling, or cable or satellite channels like ESPN or HGTV.

Does the 4th generation Tablo support ATSC 3.0 (aka NextGenTV)?

No. The tuners in the 4th generation Tablo support the ATSC 1.0 broadcast standard used by all major commercial broadcasts today and the Tablo device takes full advantage of it like never before. While ATSC 3.0 broadcasts are available in some markets, ATSC 1.0 broadcasts will continue through at least June 2027.

Shipping is always free to residents of the United States. And while we hope you love your Tablo, if you’re unhappy for any reason we offer a 30-day money-back guarantee. Customers must pay for return shipping. See our store policies page for details.

After Sandy storm I lost all communication for a good week. After that I wanted a backup for tv service. So I installed an antenna in my attic and purched a Gen 1 tablo. I got all standered channels snd more in high Def.
About 50 stations . Since then I had over 1000!
I moved to the villages near Orlando and purchased a Gen 3 tablo and have 80 stations. Abc,nbc,cbs,fox, and many more. About 70. No more cable TV. Just internet connection. Get this and dump cable.

I love my Tablo. I can watch live and/or recorded shows on every screen/device at home, for FREE. Aside from the Tablo my only investment was in a leaf antenna which I attached to the top of an out of sight wall. I get 74 channels in HD including all local network affiliates - no more monthly cable bills!

I love the Tablo. I run it through my Roku ultra. My only issue is sometimes it will not load or take as much as 4 minutes to load. Other than that, it works great
