Now it is being reported that DIRECTV NOW plans to offer multiple DVR add-ons including a 50-hour option and a 120-hour option.
According to reports, DIRECTV NOW plans to keep their 20 hours as a baseline for all subscribers. From there you can add 30 hours to get 50 hours of storage or 100 hours to get 120 hours of storage. The add-ons will start at $5. Some have reported the 100 hours of extra storage will cost $10 a month, but as of today that has not been verified.
AT&T has set no date for the release of the DVR add-ons. Early reports said the DVR add-on would roll out sometime in the summer of 2018, but it has been some time since that report and it is possible it could be delayed.
Here is the text of the email that went out to DIRECTV NOW subscribers this week:
