The new version is part of the same fourth-generation line that Tablo announced in early October. It offers four tuners for watching or recording live content from broadcast television channels receivable with an over-the-air antenna, including affiliates of ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, the CW Network and PBS member stations, among others.
The fourth-generation, four-tuner Tablo model is expeted to retail for around $140, according to a pre-order product listing on Best Buy’s website. The listing was first spotted early Monday morning by Toren Culver, who posted about it in a fan group for Tablo on the social media platform Facebook.
The fourth-generation Tablo is the first to be released by Nuvyyo since it was quietly acquired by the E. W. Scripps Company. It offers a limited amount of on-board storage for recording live television, and serves up around 60 free streaming television channels that are integrated into its electronic program guide.
The newer Tablo model doesn’t require a subscription to use, marking a departure from legacy Tablo models that offered a limited amount of TV program information without a monthly or annual payment. That said, it removes some premium features found on the older Tablo models, including support for out-of-home streaming and automatic commercial skip.
