Does DirecTV Stream come with a DVR?
Yes. DirecTV Stream does come with a cloud DVR, and every package offered by DirecTV Stream will come with the same DVR service, which gives you unlimited storage with only a few caveats.
What are the DirecTV Stream storage limits?
DirecTV Stream offers unlimited cloud storage. However, you’re limited to 30 episodes of any given TV show, and your content will expire and be deleted after 9 months. There’s no way around these limits, so make sure you’re clearing out your DVR and watching your saved shows frequently before they’re deleted.
Can I upgrade DirecTV Stream DVR storage capacity?
No. All new DirecTV Stream packages come with the same DVR. If you have an older “grandfathered” DirecTV Stream plan, it is possible to upgrade, but only if you switch to one of the new plans.
