Unlike legacy Tablo models, the 4th generation Tablo does not require a subscription of any kind.
There are no subscriptions, contracts, or hidden fees with that Tablo model whatsoever.
However, all legacy Tablo OTA DVRs (both new and refurbished) come with a free 30-Day trial of our TV Guide Data subscription so cord cutters can enjoy Tablo's advanced DVR features, right out of the box.
After the first 30 days, a subscription to the optional guide data service is recommended for the best cord cutting experience since it enables some of Tablo's cooler features including series recordings.
You may choose to continue your TV Guide Data Service subscription for $4.99 USD/month ($5.99 CAD/month) or $49.99 USD/year ($59.99 CAD/year).
You can register and purchase subscriptions for your Tablo at:
