Today is press day at CES 2015 and we already have some news from Sin City. Nuvyyo is announcing a myriad of new products to follow their success with the original Tablo HDTV DVR. Tablo METRO has been designed to combine the function of their 2-tuner DVR and an OTA HDTV Antenna to make the user experience a little easier since it will require a lot less set up and concern for compatibility. This way, Nuvyyo believes, consumers will feel more confident about ditching their cable service since the entire package will be in one small box.
Starting today, Tablo METRO is available for pre-order directly from TabloTV.com for $249 US/279 CAD and it is anticipated to ship in March. This indoor antenna technology is made available thanks to dual patent-pending fractal antennas, which are supposed to be able to pick up a signal in a 25-mile radius from the device. Tablo is also making this technology available to users who already have a Tablo unit or just want to use it for their existing HDTV set up starting at $39.99 US/44.99 CAD.
New Tablo Apps In 2015
In addition to the upgraded unit, Tablo is going to be shipping apps for Amazon Fire TV and Android TV starting early this year. In addition, they will be providing an upgraded public Roku channel for a better viewing experience as opposed to their current private channel. They describe it in their press release below:

I will be meeting with folks from Nuvyyo this week to take a look at the new Tablo METRO in person and find out more about their plans for this year. Hopefully I will be able to get my hands on a Tablo METRO later this year as well to fully dissect the new device and let you know how it performs in the real world.
