Can the Tablo install 3rd party apps and stream Netflix or is a secondary box always required?

We recognize that OTA TV is a great compliment to Over-The-Top streaming services like Netflix.

However, since we anticipate our users will have an HDMI media adapter (like the Amazon Fire TV, Android TV, AppleTV, Roku or Chromecast) already, we don’t anticipate the need to stream Netflix over Tablo. 

You cannot install 3rd party apps or stream Netflix from the new Tablo 4th Generation. However, the 4th Generation Tablo does provide 60+ free streaming channels that can be added to your Tablo's LiveTV grid during your channel scan.
