NOTE - As of August 24th 2022, Premium Service/Automatic Commercial Skip
is no longer available for purchase.

Please note this article only refers to Legacy Tablo products, the Tablo 4th Generation does not require a subscription.


Tablo's Premium Service is an optional, paid add-on for legacy Tablo owners with active Tablo TV Guide Data Subscriptions that provides access to the Automatic Commercial Skip feature.  


When Automatic Commercial Skip is enabled, the majority of completed recordings will play back without ads on our most popular legacy apps used with Network-Connected Tablo DVRs and in the interface of TV-connected Tablo DVRs like the Tablo DUAL HDMI and Tablo QUAD HDMI.


An active Tablo TV Guide Data Subscription is required for users of Tablo Premium Service.

Like Tablo TV Guide Data Subscriptions, Tablo Premium Service is tied to your account, not a specific device. This means you can change or upgrade to a new legacy Tablo DVR and easily transfer your existing Premium Service subscription to your new legacy device. Each DVR on your account that will be using Premium Service must have its own subscription.


NOTE - As of August 23rd, 2022, customers will not be able to re-subscribe to Premium Service once it has been canceled. 


Automatic Commercial Skip is Supported on the Following Devices:

  • Roku
  • Amazon Fire TV
  • Android TV
  • Apple TV
  • PC/MAC & Mobile
  • Tablo HDMI
