Tablo OTA DVR set-top box adds Apple TV app

tablo ota dvr app appletv launch schedulerecordings 1
Nuvyyo, maker of the Tablo over-the-air (OTA) HDTV DVR set-top box, today released a native app on the App Store for the fourth-gen Apple TV.

The Tablo is a set-top box that pulls in free OTA channels from a digital antenna connected to it, and streams the live signals to compatible devices. With a formatted hard drive plugged in the back, the box can be used as a DVR too.

The new app is specific to the fourth-gen Apple TV, and isn’t compatible with previous iterations of Apple’s “hobby” streamer because it is built for the tvOS platform and full 1080p HD. Owners will be able to watch live or recorded programming pulled in from a Tablo through the app, including using the voice-enabled remote to have Siri jump ahead past commercials when watching recorded shows.

The app offers much of the same access and feature set seen in the mobile apps for tablets and smartphones. The live TV guide and recordings screens, with similar visual treatments, are prevalent, though subscribers will get the extras, like artwork and remote access.

Shows can be set to record new episodes or all episodes, regardless of whether they’re reruns, making it possible to record a full season of a show. Nuvyyo says more features will be rolled out “over the coming months” to enhance the experience on the Apple TV, but did not specify whether those are existing ones on other Tablo apps, new features, or both.

This latest app adds to an existing suite of apps for iOS, Android, Android TV, Amazon, Roku, Kodi, and Plex. There is also a web-based interface for PC and Mac.
