Sling TV is making leaps and bounds with their newest features, providing cord cutters with an even more comprehensive list of benefits. The newest release adds cloud DVR capabilities, allowing Amazon Fire users early access to the program.
Available on Amazon Fire TV, Fire TV Stick, and Fire Tablets, Sling TV subscribers have access to the “First Look” opportunity as Sling widens its cloud DVR availability.
How Does Sling’s Cloud DVR Work?
Accessible through the Sling TV app, users can store up to 50 hours of content through the cloud based program. Priced at a reasonable $5/month, it grants all the abilities of a normal DVR with the convenience of cloud accessible data. You’ll be able to record a wide range of available content, including live and on-demand programming. Just as with any DVR service, you’ll be able to rewind, pause, and fast forward through all of your saved content.
One of the most important aspects of their DVR storage is the lack of time restriction, allowing the user to store their saved programs indefinitely. Accompanying the open-ended storage, the user will be allowed full content management privileges, deleting unwanted content at any time, or automatically deleting old content to make space for new recordings.
DVR was initially released in November 2016 as a beta feature for select Roku users. It’s addition to Amazon Fire devices closes the gap between competing products like the PlayStation Vue, which already have similar DVR features available across an assortment of devices.
