Can You Install Third-Party Apps and/or Stream Netflix on Tablo Devices or is a Streaming Device Always Required?

We recognize that OTA (over-the-air) TV is a great complement to streaming services like Netflix. However, since most Tablo users already have a smart TV or streaming device (like Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Android TV, Apple TV, etc.), we don’t anticipate the need to stream Netflix via Tablo.

This would add unnecessary complications and costs to our devices.  

Therefore, you cannot install third-party apps or stream Netflix from the new 4th Generation Tablo. However, 4th Generation Tablo devices do provide 70+ free streaming channels that can be added to your Tablo's Live TV grid during your channel scan.
