Teenager girl with remote control laying down and watching tv eating popcorn.This week DIRECTV NOW started to contact former beta testers who still have 100 hours of DVR storage that they will soon be downgraded to 20 hours of DVR.

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:

We couldn’t have done it without you.

Thanks to your help with our beta testing program, DIRECTV NOW is better than ever, with great new features like True Cloud DVR beta*, locals on the go**, and an upgraded interface.

As part of the beta testing program, you had access to 100 hours of DVR storage. Since the program has ended, on August 29th your storage will transition to 20 free hours of True Cloud DVR beta, which is included with your service. So make sure to stream all the good stuff you love now. And don’t worry – the most recent 20 hours of content will remain on your DVR, as long as it is less than 30 days old.

Keep on streaming and enjoying all of your favorite content, with access to third-party apps, and 40,000+ titles** on Video On Demand.
