A Tablo over-the-air DVR released this week boasts 1 terabyte of internal storage. That’s enough space to hold 700 hours of HD shows. This digital video recorder from Nuvyyo captures up to four shows at once off free local airwaves, then streams them to a phone or tablet without ads.

Tablo is a DVR for cord cutters

With cord cutting all the rage, Tablo lets users see and record all the free TV available over their local broadcast networks. These can be watched on a MacBook, iPhone, or iPad, as well as Apple TV, Roku and Amazon Fire TV.

Just recording shows off local channels is free. A subscription service adds commercial skip, which automatically jumps past ads in recorded shows.

Tablo QUAD 1TB offers a solid month of recording space

The just-released Tablo QUAD 1TB DVR has four over-the-air TV tuners and a factory-installed 1TB SATA drive. It’s available now for $239.99. Another new option is the Tablo DUAL 128GB DVR with two tuners and space to record up to 80 hours of HD programming. The price for this is $169.99.

Optional subscriptions include a TV schedule service, which display information about upcoming shows. This is $4.99 a month or $49.99 a year. Or Premium Service brings commercial ad skip for $2.00 a month or $20.00 a year.
