DirecTV Now adds DVR for all, updates iOS and Apple TV apps

DirecTV Now app update

DirecTV's next generation cloud DVR service will allow subscribers to get 20 hours of recordings for up to 30 days, according to the tech website Engadget. But it is now broadly available iOS and tvOS users, along with the launch of several other features, including support for additional streams, an expanded on-demand library, and more access to local channels when traveling. Enjoy access to up to three simultaneous different streams per account.

The new experience is rolling out on recent-generation iOS/tvOS devices and supported web browsers and will be available for recent Android, Fire TV and Roku devices over the coming weeks. For instance, under the "Watch Now" tab, you'll now see the 15 channels you watch most recently, making it easier to pick up where you left off. Later this summer, AT&T plans to add the option for DirecTV Now customers to record up to 100 hours, with programs stored for up to 90 days, for an additional $10 per month. There's also a new interface that rearranges things to work a bit better, and you'll be able to keep watching your current show while browsing other available shows. DirecTV also added more on-demand content, with over 25,000 titles available, depending on the subscription.

The update gives you more options for live viewing as well. You can record your favorite shows and games and watch anytime you want for up to 30 days on your compatible smartphone, tablet or connected big screen at home. Don't want to watch cartoons with the kids? Record an entire series or just one episode on nearly all our channels. Plus you can fast forward and rewind programs. By default, you'll get two streams included, but you can get a third stream for $5 per month. The Android enthusiasm started with the original Motorola Droid, but the tech enthusiasm now covers just about everything.
