Tablo has the old 2-tuner refurbished model on sale for only $89.99. It is a great way to start recording live over-the air TV.

Tablo OTA DVR

See my comparison of Tablo vs Android TV Live Channels for more detail.

There is a new model available now for $149.99 which adds 64 GB of storage but functionality is the same so this is a good opportunity to save.

Overall Tablo is a great product with the exception of “channel surfing”. There is a delay when switching channels due to the way Tablo operates.

Tablo includes a 30 day trial of our EPG subscription. After this you can choose to continue the subscription for $4.99 USD monthly, $49.99 USD annually or $149.99 USD for a lifetime subscription. Subscriptions are tied to your account and not the device, so you can add as many Tablo units as you’d like to your subscription or change your Tablo unit at any time. Learn more about Tablo’s EPG subscription here.
