New devices – Sling TV customers with Xbox One devices can now schedule, manage and watch DVR recordings. Cloud DVR support will be expanded to Windows 10, AirTV Player and iOS devices in the coming weeks.

New features – Sling TV added the following highly-requested features:

Protect – an option that lets customers keep a recording for as long as they are a DVR subscriber.

DVR Folders – a setting that automatically groups shows from one series into a single folder.

Record from Franchise – the ability to record a show or series from its franchise screen, so customers can see episodes available on demand and set a recording for new episodes as they come out.
