Review: Tablo DVR

10/31, 2:00am

Over-the-air DVR is a user-friendly solution, but can be limited without subscription

With over-the-top content options growing past Hulu and Netflix, consumers may be finding it harder to justify paying a monthly fee for cable.

The Tablo is one such digital video recorder (DVR) that captures free, over-the-air broadcasts, allowing people to watch their favorite time-shifted shows through a tablet or browser.
