DIRECTV NOW has as off today made its cloud DVR available to all customers. It’s currently supported on Apple iOS/tvOS devices and supported web browsers. The new version of the DIRECTV NOW app will be available for Android, Amazon Fire TV, and Roku devices in the next few weeks.
The free version of the cloud DVR is included with all tiers of service and includes the following:
- Skip commercials on a whim
- Stream at home or on-the-go
- Get 20 hrs of digital recording time
- Keep your favorites for up to 1 month
While this free version of the DVR includes 20 hours of recording, a $10 per month option that lets users record up to 100 hours and store it for up to 90 days will be available later this summer.
In addition, you can now add a 3rd stream for an additional $5 per month. The base service will still come with two streams. You can sign up for the new options through their 1-week free trial. For more information be sure to check out our review of DIRECTV NOW.
