How many shows can I record at once?

Cloud DVR users will experience conflict-free recording by breaking free from tuners and conflicts that restrict you from recording several programs at once. Record one thing while watching another, or record everything while watching something else.

What is my capacity?

Cloud DVR “First Look” offers customers 50 hours of Cloud DVR storage for $5 per month.

Cloud DVR Beta users have access to 100 hours of Cloud DVR storage.

To see and manage your storage capacity, go to the end of the “Recordings” ribbon on “My TV” and select “My DVR.” While you always have the freedom to delete recordings to manage your storage, we will make room for new recordings by deleting your old recordings as you reach capacity, starting with your oldest “watched” recording.

Can I buy more storage?

Not at this time.

Can I pause live TV on every channel now?

Cloud DVR will allow you to pause any recording of a live program. Cloud DVR functionality is not available on all channels.

What channels can I record with Cloud DVR?

DVR functionality is available for all live content, except on the following channels:

  • All Disney and ESPN channels
    • This includes ABC, Freeform, Disney Channel, Disney XD, Disney JR, ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN 3, ESPN Deportes, ESPN Goal Line, ESPN Buzzer Beater, ESPN Bases Loaded and the SEC Network.
  • FOX local networks, FOX Sports 1 (FS1), Nat Geo, and FX
  • On-demand only channels, including Newsy, Local Now, Maker, and Polaris by Maker
