Automatic Commercial Skip has been a popular feature for some Tablo Over-the-Air DVR owners. However, starting July 19th 2022, this feature will no longer be offered on NEWLY ACTIVATED Tablo DVRs.


Existing Tablo customers with active Premium Service subscriptions will not be affected by this change.


As long as a current Tablo customer's Premium Service subscription remains active, they can continue enjoying Automatic Commercial Skip on completed recordings for the foreseeable future.


As of July 19th, brand new Tablo customers will still receive a free 30-day trial of the Tablo TV Guide Data Service, along with all the advanced recording and streaming features that entails and will still be able to fast-forward through ads on recordings manually.


However, the free 30-day Premium Service trial, which enables Automatic Commercial Skip, will not be available.
