Tablo has NEW competitor with a DVR.
The new AirTV now has a DVR AND it integrates right into the GUIDE and DVR list with Sling.
But what about the other guys, like Hulu, DirectvNOw, or Fubol? I know this proposal has been mention before with Playstation. Tablo just needs to partner up with One or All and offer up an API call to their Guide and DVR menu. It is an API call so it would not be too hard to do.
The idea is ONE Unified TV Guide for Cable and OTA and One Unified DVR list all on the same App just like Sling TV does today.
The idea is Tablo would sell tons of Hardware if they integrated the Table Guide and DVR list partnering up with some other provider.
Both would make a lot of money.
The Streamer for Cable (Hulu, Fubol ect) would not have to do all locals (like Sling does not) and make more money as the subscription would stay low.
Tablo would make a ton of money in Hardware sales AND the Subscription for the OTA guide and DRV $5 a month.
Both would win.
