True Cloud DVR: A TV game changer

    Say goodbye to the days of missing out on your favorite TV shows and hello to True Cloud DVR BETA.

    The season finale of your favorite show airs on Sunday, but it conflicts with your grandma’s 80th birthday bash. What do you do? There’s only one option… sorry, grandma! All jokes aside, now you never have to miss your TV favorites (or watching grandma blow out 80 candles) thanks to True Cloud DVR BETA.*

    With True Cloud DVR BETA, all DIRECTV NOW subscribers get 20 hours of recording time. What’s better than that? Glad you asked. It’s FREE. You can record live entertainment, rewind or fast-forward through commercials, and schedule future recordings up to 2 weeks in advance.

    Just think of the possibilities.

    Miss that goal while getting a drink refill? No problem. You can rewind so you never miss a beat, or fast-forward to the action.

    Going off the grid for a few weeks, but don’t want to miss next week’s game? Well, Cloud DVR leaves the difficult decisions to the coach, by making it possible for you to record episodes you would have missed or entire seasons. Schedule a recording up to two weeks in advance or record live TV on the fly. The decision is yours.

    Got plans to record a show on the train ride to work, and then watch it later on your commute home? As a DIRECTV NOW subscriber, you can record and playback from anywhere. Watch the shows you’ve recorded whenever you want, wherever you want, stored for up to 30 days. Whether that’s on your smartphone, tablet, or your compatible TV at home.

    So, what’s the catch? There isn’t one. Recording with True Cloud DVR is simple: click on the show you want to record in the guide, select record, and voilà! Pat yourself on the back, you did it. It doesn’t require a bulky box for your home TV and it won’t burn up memory on your smartphone—it’s all up in the cloud.

    Managing your recordings is just as easy. Head over to My Library where you’ll see your recorded collection of shows and remaining space. Letting go is never easy (cue the violins), but when you’re ready to delete an episode, simply click and hold on the show name.

    It won’t clean your dirty dishes, but True Cloud DVR can do just about everything else. Ready… set…RECORD!
