But I just read this, not a smart plan.

Why is there no Canadian pricing or availability?
The Tablo ATSC 3.0 QUAD HDMI is not being made available in Canada as the country has no current plans to adopt the ATSC 3.0 standard.

Extremely ridiculous reasoning, since OTA signals don't magically stop at the border. Those in the Golden Horseshoe that have TV antennas could be in an excellent position to receive ATSC 3.0 signals from Buffalo, and perhaps Erie.

Here in Brantford, I don't have any real long term problems picking up most of the signals from both Buffalo and Erie. In fact, if I position my 25+ year old VHF-UHF-FM Deep Fringe Yagi halfway between Buffalo and Erie, on most days I'm still able to pull in all but the weakest signals from those two locations, plus still receive signals from Kitchener, Paris, Hamilton, and most of the stations from Toronto.

What is ridiculous? We living along the border next to Buffalo are very fortunate. What about the rest of Canada? We have seen many OTA stations go off line in many parts of Canada. If it wasn't for the USA stations Canada would have very little to offer!

Pretty easy to get as I'm sure B&H or Amazon.ca will get it and ship it, just like they do with the Silicon Dust (HDHR) 3.0 Tuner.




I have the Tablo Dual Lite and it's awesome. The only bad thing about the new box is that it won't stream over the home network, which might kill some sales. If Silicon Dust makes a new version of their 3.0 box with streaming and DVR, they might overtake them.
