Sling TV Brings Its $5 Per Month Cloud DVR Functionality to the Apple TV

Sling TV Brings Its $5 Per Month Cloud DVR Functionality to the Apple TV

Sling TV announced on Monday that its Cloud DVR service is now available on the Apple TV. Subscribers can get 50 hours of Cloud DVR storage for an extra $5 per month over their usual Sling TV subscription charge.


Sling TV subscribers with Apple TVs can now join the many customers already enjoying Cloud DVR’s “First Look” on Roku, Amazon, and Android devices. Record your favorite programming, from blockbuster movies and popular series to must-watch sporting events and more.

Eligible customers may add Cloud DVR to their Sling TV subscription by signing in to their account on sling.com and selecting “Add Cloud DVR.” If you don’t own an Amazon, Android, Apple TV or Roku device, stay tuned – we’ll continue to expand Cloud DVR to even more devices in the future.

Content remains stored in the Cloud DVR indefinitely, and viewing supports the usual rewind, fast-forward and pause functions expected from DVR viewing. While most content can be saved to the Cloud DVR, some channels do not offer the functionality, including Disney, FOX, and ESPN.

Here are some features currently available through Cloud DVR “First Look”:

  • Watch anytime, anywhere– Record your favorite programs and watch whenever you want across all Amazon Fire TVs and Fire tablets, Android mobile devices, Android TVs, Apple TVs, Roku streaming players and Roku TVs. AirTV Player is not currently compatible with Cloud DVR.
  • Conflict-free recording– Record multiple programs simultaneously, and forget about recording conflicts.
  • Keep recordings as long as you want– With Sling TV, your recordings won’t expire as long as you remain a Sling TV subscriber with Cloud DVR.
  • Auto-managed recordings– Sling TV will make room for new recordings by deleting your old recordings as you reach capacity, starting with your oldest ‘watched’ recording, so you can binge on your new favorite show.

Sling TV subscribers can enable the Cloud DVR service by signing into their accounts on the Sling website, and selecting the “Add Cloud DVR” option.
