Given that the competition is rising in the online TV streaming market, we’re seeing existing players improve the features that they offer so that they don’t start losing subscribers. Sling TV has been around for a couple of years and has established a name for itself in this market. It has announced the expansion of its Cloud DVR service to Amazon customers today.

Sling TV has announced that those of its subscribers who access the service on Amazon Fire TVs, Fire TV Sticks, and Fire tablets can now get 50 hours of Cloud DVR storage for just $5 per month with any Sling TV subscription.

This feature has long been requested by users which is why it’s rolling out the Cloud DVR “First Look,” program today for Sling TV customers who use Amazon devices. The Cloud DVR feature enables users to record their shows and watch them whenever they want across all Amazon devices, Android mobile devices, Android TVs, Roku streaming players, and Roku TVs.

Users can record multiple programs simultaneously but have to keep in mind that Cloud DVR functionality won’t be supported by all channels. Sling TV will automatically make room for new records by deleting old watched recordings when the 50 hour capacity is full.

Currently, only Sling TV subscribers who use Amazon devices can sign up for Cloud DVR but the company has confirmed that it’s going to expand this feature further to allow users to sign up via other devices. It will be expanded to the Apple TV next but it hasn’t been confirmed when that’s going to happen.
