Beta Test for DTV Now Cloud DVR Ends

AT&T has ended the beta test for its DirecTV Now cloud DVR. One published report states that the telecom will soon release a consumer version with 120 hours of HD storage, and this version will evidently be an optional premium service, not a feature of the basic DirecTV Now package., publisher of the report, says the 120-hour version will be the first of several. Other service tiers, beginning with a 50-hour version, will follow.

AT&T has begun notifying participants in the beta test that their free 100-hour cloud DVR access will be converted on August 29 to a 120-hour version, for which AT&T will charge a $10.00 monthly premium.

AT&T bought DirecTV late in 2016 and launched DirecTV Now, a dedicated internet video streaming service, shortly afterward. The beta test for its cloud DVR began late last year.

AT&T has not revealed the number of customers participating in the test.

What is DirecTV Now?

DirecTV Now is AT&T’s dedicated internet streaming video platform. Unlike the original DirecTV system, the new platform does not require a satellite dish or proprietary receivers. DirecTV Now is compatible with Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Chromecast, and Roku streaming devices; Samsung smart TV sets; Android and iOS phones and tablets, and Chrome and Safari browsers.

Firefox and Explorer will not stream DirecTV Now video, but can be used for managing customer accounts.
