The Sling TV streaming service has expanded its Cloud DVR “First Look” program to Sling TV customers using Apple TV. Sling TV is currently available on Amazon, Android and Roku devices. Customers with a Sling TV-supported Apple TV may add Cloud DVR to their subscription at $5 per month for 50 hours of Cloud DVR storage.


Apple TV users can purchase 50 hours of DVR storage for just $5 per month with any Sling TV subscription. Users get more choice and control over entertainment choices and the ability to record Sling TV content to watch (Cloud DVR functionality not available on all channels.)

Sling TV provides an optimal live and on-demand experience. Sling TV is the only OTT provider on Apple TV that allows you to keep recordings as long as you keep Cloud DVR. Plus, you can pause, rewind and fast-forward through your recorded content anytime.

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.

Eligible customers may add Cloud DVR to their Sling TV subscription by signing in to their account on and selecting “Add Cloud DVR.”

More expanding Cloud DVR support announcements on additional devices will be coming soon.
