Cloud DVR ‘First Look’ now available to Apple TV users

Earlier this month, we announced the availability of Cloud DVR to Roku and Android users. Now, Apple TV fans, it’s your turn! Starting today, Apple TV users can purchase 50 hours of DVR storage for just $5 per month with any Sling TV subscription. That means you get more choice and control over your entertainment and the ability to record your favorite Sling TV content to watch later, on your time. (Cloud DVR functionality not available on all channels.)

If you’ve been less than impressed with other OTT services, now is a great time to switch to Sling TV, which provides an optimal live and on-demand experience. Sling TV is the only OTT provider on Apple TV that allows you to keep recordings as long as you keep Cloud DVR. Plus, you can pause, rewind and fast-forward through your recorded content anytime.

Sling TV subscribers with Apple TVs can now join the many customers already enjoying Cloud DVR’s “First Look” on Roku, Amazon, and Android devices. Record your favorite programming, from blockbuster movies and popular series to must-watch sporting events and more.

Eligible customers may add Cloud DVR to their Sling TV subscription by signing in to their account on sling.com and selecting “Add Cloud DVR.” If you don’t own an Amazon, Android, Apple TV or Roku device, stay tuned – we’ll continue to expand Cloud DVR to even more devices in the future.

Here are some features currently available through Cloud DVR “First Look”:

  • Watch anytime, anywhere– Record your favorite programs and watch whenever you want across all Amazon Fire TVs and Fire tablets, Android mobile devices, Android TVs, Apple TVs, Roku streaming players and Roku TVs. AirTV Player is not currently compatible with Cloud DVR.
  • Conflict-free recording– Record multiple programs simultaneously, and forget about recording conflicts.
  • Keep recordings as long as you want– With Sling TV, your recordings won’t expire as long as you remain a Sling TV subscriber with Cloud DVR.
  • Auto-managed recordings– Sling TV will make room for new recordings by deleting your old recordings as you reach capacity, starting with your oldest ‘watched’ recording, so you can binge on your new favorite show.
