Tablo is a DVR for over-the-air programmingThe Tablo box and app let you record the free shows that are available over the air.
Hello, I'm Luke Westaway for CNET here at CES 2014. We're taking a look at Tablo. It's a new DVR system for recording over-the-air video. So as you might already know, if you plug an antenna into your TV, you could already get loads of great HD programming but you're slightly limited in the way that you can control and how you watch that stuff and that's where Tablo comes in, because it gives you the power to record those over-the-air broadcasts. So this is the Tablo box that plugs in to your antenna which receives the over-the-air broadcasts and then the Tablo, all the stuff from there is sent to a [unk] box. So this will work with Apple TV, Roku and it should work with Smart TVs as well. When you download the Tablo app, which is available on iOS, Android and in browser, you'll be able to see and plan all your recordings. So if you want to [unk] something, you just find the program, tap record. It seems pretty simple and very cool. [unk] over-the-air programs to be recorded using the Tablo app. When you plug in a hard drive to the Tablo box, that's where those programs get stored. Yup, basically serves as a kind of sophisticated TV remote control. So you can see what's coming up, set it to record, or you can play it back on your phone, tablet or computer. So the interface seems pretty sleek and I think this could be a really good way of organizing and capturing some of the great stuff that arrives free over-the-air to your TV.
