When it comes to smarter over-the-air tuners with DVR built in — that is, the things you'll hook an OTA antenna to so that you can spread its free broadcast signals to all kinds of devices in your home, and the ability to record said stream — there's currently only one name to look at. That's Tablo, and it's made bringing in, sharing and recording free over-the-air TV ridiculously simple.
Basically it's a 21st Century VCR for your antenna, with apps for Android and iOS and Roku and basically everything. And today two of its more interesting models are on sale on Amazon.
The two-tuner Tablo with 64 gigabytes of on-board storage included is on sale for $179 — down from $219. That's an 18 percent savings, which is nothing to stick your nose up at.
And the four-tuner Tablo — you'll need to bring your own external hard drive to this party — is on sale for $251, down from a whopping $299. That's a 16 percent difference.
The best over-the-air antennas
Who doesn't like free TV, right? And it turns out that in 2018 there's still plenty to watch — free and legal — if you've got a decent enough over-the-air antenna. For the cost of a decent meal at the Sizzler you can get an antenna that pulls in stations from dozens of miles away, piping free 1080i content straight into your TV.
All you have to do is pick the right one for you.
