What devices can I get Cloud DVR on?

Cloud DVR functionality is supported on all devices except select 2018 Samsung Smart TV models, and the X1 platform. Click here for more information on devices that support Sling TV.

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 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.
