It has been a month since Sling TV announced its Cloud DVR “First Look” program which provided subscribers on an Amazon Fire TV or Fire tablet to get 50 hours of cloud storage for $5 per month. A month after coming out with this feature for the very first time, Sling TV today announced that it is expanding the Cloud DVR First Look to other platforms. It’s now available for users on Android and Roku as well.
Everything else remains the same as it has been for Amazon device owners for over a month. Sling TV subscribers on Roku and Android can also purchase 50 hours of storage for all of their content for just $5 per month with any Sling TV subscription.
The Cloud DVR feature will enable users to watch their favorite shows, movies, games, and more on their own time by automatically having the show saved and available for streaming from the cloud.
The feature makes room for new recordings by automatically deleting old records once the 50GB capacity is hit, it starts by copying over the oldest watched recording to make more space for new content.
Dish-owned Sling TV has also confirmed that it’s soon going to expand Cloud DVR to the Apple TV, this is going to happen in the coming weeks. More devices will get Cloud DVR in the coming months as well.
