Version 2

Is a nice improvement. Seems better in many ways. Faster. But…. Still no Picture in Picture support. How about that and maybe split screen support? Try differentiate yourselves.

As for the hardware, Tablo functions just as expected. Figure out the antenna you need then get a better one. You won’t be disappointed. The same for the size of hard drive.

Apple TV app slow, unresponsive, poor UX

After a couple years of restarting the dual channel receiver and the app, I switched to AirTv by Sling. The Tablo hardware had to be reset a couple times a week - sometimes daily.

The UX is awkward and unintuitive. Settings, channel selection and even just watching a program take more steps than needed and don’t behave similar to other apps. Network management is extremely limited. Short term network glitches or reception problems seem to hang the box or the app and there’s no way to diagnose which one.

The business model of subscription for channel guides and commercial skip is really questionable. Sending the stream to a server to strip commercials… REALLY?

OTA reception was good connected to TV but random on Tablo. Well, AirTV works just as well OTA as TV does and it’s worked without the frustrating restarts.

At first, Tablo seemed like a great solution but it’s primitive. There’s been little noticeable improvement over a couple years. It’s a dated, over-priced product compared to available alternatives.

Only Hit and Miss Success

I’ve had Tablo since 2015. Same problems today as then. Connecting from away from home is a 50/50. After a month or so the app will say “cannot find Tablo” or “connect from your home wifi first”. Then there is a regular error where iphone cannot find tablo on home network either. No vpn active. Tablo playing fine on appletv. So that keeps it from being a 1 star review. But as far as it being there for you if you need it just to work, no go usually on ios, neither on the road nor the home office consistently. And no, tech help have not been able to help with a long term solution.
