Sling TV Launches a New DVR Auto Record Feature Ahead of March Madness





This week Sling TV announced a new DVR feature that will auto record upcoming sporting events and other entertainment programs. Now, with Auto Record, Sling TV subscribers can auto-record all upcoming NCAA Football, NFL, NBA, NCAA Men’s Basketball, MLB, NHL, Premier League, NCAAW, WNBA, Bundesliga, and La Liga Santander with a single click.

“We understand the passion our viewers have for sports, and with the introduction of Auto Record, we’re enhancing their streaming experience like never before,” says Gary Schanman, group president, DISH Video Services. “With Auto Record, fans can catch the dunks, three pointers, and upsets offered on SLING.”

To setups Auto Record, subscribers will need to subscribe to the Sling TV DVR Plus for $5 a month. Once subscribed, users must accept and opt in, in order to access Auto Record, then they can enjoy the convenience of recorded games, allowing you to watch only the parts of the game you want without any interruption. Auto Record does not count toward their 200 hours of DVR space provided by DVR plus.

“With Auto Record, we are empowering our users,” added Schanman. “At SLING our priority is to make streaming simple, flexible and to fit into the lives of our users. Auto Record does that.”

This new feature will help Sling TV customers never miss a big game.
