Sling TV is a popular standalone online TV streaming service. The Dish-owned service has now announced that its cloud DVR service will be available on more devices. The feature allows subscribers to save shows that they want to watch later in the cloud. The idea here is the same as a traditional DVR with the major difference being that your recordings are saved in the cloud and not in a box that sits below your television.
This feature isn’t free for subscribers, though. They have to pay $5 per month over and above their package subscription in order to avail the cloud DVR feature. It then allows then to store up to 50 hours of recordings for as long as they want. However, not all channels are eligible for recording, particularly Disney and ESPN channels, all of which are not supported.
Sling TV previously offered its cloud DVR feature on select platforms including but not limited to Android, iOS, Apple TV, and the Fire TV. The expansion of this feature covers almost every device that’s capable of running this service.
Sling TV’s cloud DVR feature will now be available in the Chrome browser, Xbox One, Chromecast, LG smart TVs as well as 2016 and 2017 models of smart TVs from Samsung.
