WHY SLING DVR?
Sling DVR lets you watch TV on your terms, and that means you can watch recorded shows whenever you want. Unlike other streaming services, Sling Cloud DVR keeps your recordings for as long as you’re a customer, so there’s no rush to watch them before they’re gone. And if you need to take a break, your Sling Cloud DVR recordings won’t disappear as soon as you leave the service, either. They’ll stick around for a full 30 days after you leave and will be ready for you to watch when you come back. Whether it’s the next day, next month, or next year, you can enjoy your recordings when it’s convenient for you. With a Sling TV subscription, Cloud DVR costs just $5 a month. Plus, with Sling’s On-Demand library of over 65,000 titles, you’ll never be left wondering, “What should I watch tonight?” Check out the chart below to see how Sling DVR stacks up against other streaming services like Hulu Live, YouTube TV, and Playstation Vue.

And the best part is, you can keep your Cloud DVR recordings for as long as you’re a Sling customer. So no matter what your busy day holds, your favorite shows will be saved and waiting for you whenever you’re ready to tune in.
HOW DOES SLING CLOUD DVR WORK
Being able to record can’t-miss premieres and gotta-see games is great, but you may be unsure of how to use Sling DVR. It’s as easy as 1-2-3. Use the “On Now,” “Guide” or “Sports” tab in your Sling TV menu to find a show, movie or game you’d like to record. Select the title you’re interested in, then simply tap “Record” to set your recording. You can even pick how often you want to record episodes of the shows you love. Whether you want to record the rest of the episode you’re watching to come back to later, or you want to record all future episodes, Cloud DVR gives you the power to choose. For a series, you can record “All” or just “New” episodes. Keep in mind that Cloud DVR functionality isn’t available on all channels. When your DVR is at the 50-hour cap, the system will simply erase the oldest recording to make room for future recordings. Once you’re ready to enjoy your recordings, simply navigate to “My TV” under the “My Recordings” ribbon, choose what you want to watch, sit back and enjoy.
