Did you know you could have watched 94 of the top 100 most-watched TV programs of last year for free with an antenna? It’s true!

In most major cities, a simple Over-the-Air (OTA) HDTV antenna can give you access to local and national broadcast networks including ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC, all in beautiful HD quality. When you combine Tablo – a network-connected DVR designed specifically for use with Over-the-Air TV antennas – with your Roku streaming player or Roku TV, you can enjoy all of this free content live as it airs, or record it for later just like you would with a DVR from a cable or satellite company.

Free TV signals are captured from local broadcast towers by your Over-the-Air antenna which then connects to Tablo – a small device the size of a paperback book.
