Sling TV started offering a cloud DVR feature to users several months ago. It enables them to save shows to their cloud DVR so that they can watch them at a later date. The cloud DVR feature has an automatic deletion functionality as it overwrites shows starting from the oldest saved one once the space fills up. Sling TV has now updated the feature to ensure that users can protect some recordings from being automatically deleted.
Sling TV is now enabling subscribers to record content on Fox channels. They can now set and watching a recording that airs on Fox local networks, Fox Sports 1, Nat Geo, and FX. If a recording is available from Fox on-demand, the user will automatically be redirected to the on-demand content.
It’s also possible to schedule, manage, and view Sling TV DVR recordings using the service’s Xbox One app in addition to the apps already available for Amazon Fire TVs and Fire tablets, Android devices, iOS devices, and Roku TVs. Cloud DVR will be expanded to more Sling TV supported devices in the near future.
Aside from the Protect feature that keeps a recording from being deleted, users can also sort their recordings into DVR folders which makes managing multiple recordings very easy.
All this and more, including minor user interface tweaks, is included in the recent update for Sling TV on supported platforms.
