LAS VEGAS — January 4, 2017 — Nuvyyo, the maker of the Tablo Over-the-Air (OTA) DVR Tablo, today announced a slate of new hardware, software and services. The company will be rolling out new apps for Android TV devices starting with the Nvidia Shield, a new dongle that will let users set up an antenna anywhere and even announced it is looking into cloud DVR storage.
Android TV Integration
By connecting a USB OTA tuner and an antenna to the Nvidia Shield and downloading the Tablo DROID DVR app, TV fans will be able to discover, watch and record live HDTV on their Android set-
top-box without the need for companie’s OTA DVR hardware.
The New software will allow users to save programming on the Shield’s hard drive which will be a big win for those with the pro model. Tablo DROID will be compatible with Tablo TUNER, a new dual-tuner USB dongle or the Hauppauge WinTV-dualHD USB tuner stick.
“Since 2013, Nuvyyo has been focused on making Tablo the defacto app for live TV on the widest variety of internet-connected screens,” said Grant Hall, CEO at Nuvyyo, the makers of Tablo. “Today’s announcements strengthen that commitment and provide consumers with even more choice in how they watch and record Over-the-Air HDTV.”
Tablo’s DROID app will be free to download from the Google Play store and will include a free 30-day trial of Tablo’s guide data subscription. After the trial, users can continue to watch live TV and set manual recordings without a subscription. Nuvyyo plans to release the DROID app to the Google Play store and make the TUNER stick available for purchase via the Tablo web store in Q2 of 2017.
Tablo LIVE ‘Antenna Anywhere’ Stick
The Tablo LIVE ‘antenna anywhere’ stick is a single-tuner WiFi device that turns any OTA antenna into a smart antenna, enabling cord cutters to distribute OTA HDTV programming over their home network via WiFi. With Tablo LIVE, consumers can place their antenna anywhere in their home to ensure the best possible positioning for OTA reception and watch live HDTV programming via Tablo apps (www.tablotv.com/apps) on mobile devices and streaming set-top-boxes.
Apps for Tablo LIVE will have a user-friendly interface and allow consumers browse an on-screen 24 hour grid guide with episode and series details as well as launch live broadcast TV streams. Tablo LIVE apps will be free to download and no guide data subscription will be required.
The Tablo LIVE ‘antenna anywhere’ stick is expected to be available in Q2 2017 with an anticipated MSRP of $99 USD.
Tablo CLOUD DVR Storage
Currently in the proof-of-concept stage, Tablo CLOUD DVR storage is designed to be used with the Tablo LIVE ‘antenna anywhere’ stick to add online recording storage and DVR functionality. Tablo CLOUD will be subscription-based and offer a set number of hours of cloud DVR storage for a monthly fee. Pricing, plans and availability will be announced at launch.
All Tablo products and software innovations will be demonstrated in Las Vegas this evening from6:00 to 10:30 p.m. at the Pepcom Digital Experience media event at the Mirage Events Center.
