The 4th Gen Tablo collects free Over-The-Air (OTA) HDTV content through an external antenna connected to the box. The external antenna will pick up local OTA channels in your area and allow you to both watch them on Live TV and record them. Additionally, the 4th Gen Tablo adds support for 60+ free streaming channels that you can watch live and record.

The Tablo DVR is then connected to your home’s Internet router, either through Wi-Fi or an Ethernet cable. The Tablo app (on your respective device) will walk you through the remaining installation and setup process and will become the primary interface with your Tablo system.
