With prices of HDMI media adapters like Roku, Chromecast, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV and Android TV continuing to decline we believe they are a better option to deliver the video the final few inches to your TV.
One of the benefits of delivering video over your home network is that we can support multiple TVs, tablets, computers or smartphones at the same time from a single Tablo. This provides customers with a whole home DVR solution at a very compelling price point.
