If you would like to access your Tablo with a compatible device, you will need to download and install the Tablo app.

NOTE- Legacy Tablo apps are not compatible with the new 4th generation Tablo models and the new Tablo app experience apps are not compatible with legacy Tablo models.

You can differentiate the correct type of Tablo app for your device model by the app icons.

Tablo apps for 4th Generation Tablo models are light blue and white with a dark blue background. Tablo apps for legacy Tablo models are light blue and orange with white accents.
