I have setup my Tablo, and ‘connected’ both my laptop and phone to my box. I have successfully been able to remotely view content… will it work when I go to London tonight? I really want to watch some AMERICAN football game tomorrow - not just soccer!
Yes it will work, unless you’re staying in a hotel that blocks the necessary ports for Tablo Connect. Of course, the internet also has to be fast enough to stream.
An Internet connection is an Internet connection .
1a) Do you know which ports I’d need?
1b) Is there any work around if they do block?
- With Amazon and Netflix, internet is NOT internet. They detect where you are and won’t let me view anything since my license is only good in the US/Canada
Yes this is personally recorded content. No licensing issue for your own personal viewing.
No if the hotel blocks the ports, you’re SOL.
I have used my Tablo in London (and other cities in Europe) just fine. I have never had a hotel block the ports that the Tablo uses. The toughest thing is getting enough bandwidth to watch anything, though some hotels there do have pretty good internet.
I spent time in southern and northern Europe over the summer. Tablo connect worked fine. Internet bandwidth was a bit problematic at times. This is another reason offline viewing would be welcome. You could download a complete show on poorer quality connection, then watch the show offline with full quality. Offline viewing is still on the roadmap I hope.
Thanks, all! I can now go confident that I’ll be able to personally witness the Redskins self-destruction.
Agree on the surprisingly poor internet in London and Paris (Germany seems to generally be better)… and the need for downloading content.
