It has only been a few weeks since Sling TV announced the expansion of its Cloud DVR “First Look” to Roku and Android users. It promised back then that the DVR would gradually be rolled out to users on other platforms as well. It’s following through on this promise by rolling out Cloud DVR for Sling TV users on Apple TV today.
Starting today, Sling TV subscribers on Apple TV can purchase 50 hours of DVR storage for $5 per month with any Sling TV subscription. This enables them to have more choice and control over their entertainment as they get the ability to record their favorite content to watch later on their own time.
Recorded programs can be watched across all compatible devices which include all Amazon Fire TVs, Fire Tablets, Android mobile devices, Android TVs, Roku TVs, and Roku streaming players. Users get conflict-free recordings so they can record multiple programs simultaneously without having to worry about recording conflicts.
The feature makes room for new recordings automatically by deleting old recordings as the 50GB capacity is reached, it starts by deleting the oldest watched recording.
Sling TV happens to be the only over-the-top TV streaming service on Apple TV that allows users to keep their recordings as long they keep paying for the Cloud DVR feature. Users can easily pause, rewind, and fast-forward through their recorded content as they please.
