DIRECTV NOW Just Increased the Size of Their DVR Storage




Last week Cord Cutters News was the first site to post photos of the new DIRECTV NOW DVR. At that time the DVR only offered 100 hours of storage.

It looks as though DIRECTV NOW quickly made changes to that with the new round of DVR testing. According to multiple beta testers, we can confirm that AT&T has upped the storage of the DIRECTV NOW DVR from 100 hours to 6,000 hours.

Update: DIRECTV NOW is now telling people that the 6,000 hour DVR is an error. Testers have reported they can now record over 100 hours but no one has found the new limit on DVR recordings.

Now keep in mind this is still a pre-beta product before the public launch of the new DIRECTV NOW app and DVR. It is likely that the storage will change before it launches this fall.

Other than the jump from 100 hours to 6,000 hours of storage AT&T has not seemed to make any big changes.

So what can we expect from the final roll out of the DIRECTV NOW DVR this fall? Honestly, we just don’t know. It’s great to see screen shots and know that you can fast forward through commercials right now; however, that all could change before the DVR goes public.

What we can confirm is that a new DIRECTV NOW app and DVR service is on its way.
