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 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, or $55/month for the Stremium+ plan, which is powered by Vidgo.
Both of these plans will 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 both the Stremium Basic and Stremium+ plans. 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 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. Or do you?
This is where Stremium+ comes in. This package offers the same benefits as Stremium. But it also comes with a Vidgo subscription. Vidgo is a live TV streaming service that provides 95+ channels. These include ESPN, Fox News, HGTV, Food Network, and tons of other favorites.
