Last night DIRECTV NOW’s new DVR and app rolled out to Android users. Today DIRECTV NOW is rolling out their new app and DVR to Fire TV users AT&T confirmed to Cord Cutters News.
If you don’t have the update yet go into your settings and update your Fire TV should bring the app. Note you need a second gen or new Fire TV or Fire Stick.
“This week, Android and Amazon Fire TV streamers began to see the same awesomeness! The new, improved look and new features, including True Cloud DVR (beta)*, have been popping up across the nation, so be sure to check and make sure it’s not already available.” AT&T said in a blog post today.
Here is everything new:
True Cloud DVR (beta). Twenty hours of free recording is currently available today as we continue to evolve our beta testing of the Cloud DVR feature and expand availability to all DIRECTV NOW customers. Record your favorites and watch virtually anytime you want for up to 30 days on your compatible smartphone, tablet or connected big screen at home. Record an entire series or just one episode on almost all our channels. Fast forward and rewind at will. No need for a box at home or to use up the memory in your smartphone – it’s all in the cloud! What you’ll see today is just the start. We’re working on rolling out more capacity options and features later this summer—which will let you keep more on your Cloud DVR for longer. You’ll be able to record up to 100 hours and keep it stored up to 90 days, for $10 per month.
New Look. We changed up the look and feel of the app, putting your most-watched channels and favorite programs front and center. You can even view your current stream while browsing for something that you might want to watch next.
Up to Three Streams at Once. Enjoy access to up to three simultaneous different streams per account. Don’t want to watch cartoons with the kids? Sick of your spouse’s love for reality TV? Don’t worry – we’ve got you covered beyond the standard two streams with a third stream for $5 per month.
Local Channels on the Road. Before, you only were able to access the local networks via DIRECTV NOW at home. Now, if you want to catch local news while you travel, you’ll be able to. For example, if you watch FOX (KTTV) on DIRECTV NOW at home in Los Angeles and are traveling to Dallas, where FOX (KDFW) station is available for DIRECTV NOW customers, you’ll be able to watch KDFW during your visit.
