New Upgraded Features For AT&T’s DirectTV


DirectTV Gets New Upgraded Features

AT&T’s DirectTV gets new upgraded features. The company says the revamped DirectTV now has Cloud DVR and has more coming this spring. AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson says that the update will come sometime in spring of 2018.


New Feature Upgrades

As announced previously, the upgraded DirectTV Now will have Cloud-based DVR, interface updates, and more new upgraded features. The company has added more color on the new features. It said that the upcoming interface design will help unify its video efforts on TV, phone, and tablet.

Details Of The New Design

Specific details of the new design remain unclear. It features an interface that is not necessarily user-friendly at first glance. The redesign coming this spring will ideally make some much needed changes in terms of user experience.

DirectTV is testing the Cloud feature with 100 hours of storage during the beta period with invited customers. “My Library” interface is where recorded shows are stored. This feature is accessible across iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV.

More Upgraded Features Of DirectTV

Another new feature upgrade is the possibility of whether or not it disables ad skipping. But it seems it has. This means you will not be able to fast forward through advertisements on your recorded shows. This has been the most popular reason why people use DVR.

It is also said to include 4K HDR support, though AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson has not mentioned such feature.

New Charges For AT&T’s DirectTV Now

How much AT&T will charge for the Cloud DVR. Hulu include the pricing of DVR in their TV packages, and Sling TV charges an additional $5 to its monthly subscription.

It now has over 1 million subscribers. This has become very popular among chord cutters. AT&T hopes its new upgraded features launching this spring will further propel the streaming service.
