Stremium is a pretty unique service. Instead of providing live TV, its $5/month “Basic” plan lets you connect TV providers like Spectrum, Sling TV, and Philo, and record and watch channels all in one place.
But how much storage capacity does the DVR offer? Can you record multiple shows simultaneously with the DVR? Can you upgrade the Stremium DVR for more capacity? Get all the answers to these questions and more in this guide from Flixed.
How Much DVR Space Do I Get With Stremium?
Stremium pricing is relatively simple. The service has a free plan, but this doesn’t give you access to the DVR. To get the DVR, you’ll need to pay $5/month for the Basic plan.
This plan give you a 25-hour DVR, which you can use to record your favorite shows and watch them later. If your storage is full, you’ll be asked to choose a recording to delete in order to free up space.
Can I Upgrade And Add More DVR Space To Stremium?
Yes! Stremium lets you add more space to Stremium Basic plan. You can add 25 more hours of storage for an additional $5/month. So for example, if you have Stremium Basic, you could pay $20/month ($5 plus an extra $15) for 100 total hours of DVR capacity.
Can I DVR Shows Simultaneously With Stremium?
Yes. As long as you have free DVR space, you can record shows from Stremium channels simultaneously. With Stremium, you could record a sports game, a news broadcast, and an episode of your favorite sitcom all at once – even if they all start at 8:00 PM.
Do I Need Cable Or Satellite TV To Use Stremium’s DVR?
Yes… and no. To use Stremium Basic, the $5/month plan, you’ll need a TV subscription. Once you connect a TV provider like Spectrum or Sling TV to Stremium, you can watch your favorite shows and record them through the Stremium app, which means you can watch them anywhere.
However, this does mean you need to have an existing pay TV subscription to get the most out of Stremium. However, both plans also come with access to 100+ free channels that you can watch.
