Embellishing Xbox One

Tablo and FandangoNow have come to Xbox One

With Tablo, users can watch or record over-the-air TV. With FandangoNow, they can rent or buy from a library of more than 40,000 movies, as well as new TV shows the day after they air.

imgres-1Tablo works with any over-the-air antenna, allowing users to watch or record up to four shows at once via all devices in the home. The Tablo Xbox app is free, but you’ll also need to buy a Tablo DVR, which currently sell for $181 (two-tuner model) or $250 (four-tuner model) on Amazon. Details on other setup requirements, and additional info, can be found on the Tablo site.

imgresNBCUniversal’s FandangoNow, which launched in March and is an offshoot of the Fandango movie ticketing service, is offering Xbox One users 50% off their first transaction. A visit to www.fandangonow.com by The Savvy Screener found such current content as a limited-time 99-cent rental of 10 Cloverfield Lane, a “new to rent” Finding Dory in HD for $5.99, an extended cut of Suicide Squad selling for $19.99, and the new CBS series The Great Indoors renting for $1.99 an episode, or 13.99 for a “season pass.” There’s also some free content available. FandangoNow rentals are good for 48 hours.

If you don’t have Xbox One, you can also use FandangoNow or Tablo on a wide range of devices. Here are device lists for FandangoNow and Tablo.
