Hulu has announced it will soon offer unlimited DVR capacity to its live TV bundle subscribers at no extra charge.
Current subscribers get up to 50 hours of DVR storage, with an option to boost that to 200 hours for an extra monthly fee. The Enhanced Cloud DVR for one screen add-on is $9.99 per month, while the Enhanced Cloud DVR with Unlimited Screens bundle is $14.98 per month.
The new DVR setup will be unlimited and allow recordings to be played back and fast-forwarded for up to nine months.
This will bring Hulu in line with YouTube TV, which has had an unlimited DVR since its launch in 2017.
“Hulu + Live TV is becoming even more valuable and attractive to consumers,” Hulu president Joe Earley said in a press release. “Through one single subscription, users get access to 80+ live channels – including all the major broadcast networks – as well as Hulu, Disney+, ESPN+, and soon Unlimited DVR. We will be one of the only pay TV providers – traditional or streaming – to offer this feature as part of the base plan at no additional cost.”
The unlimited DVR will start April 13 for all subscribers on the Hulu + Live TV plan, which as of November 2021, also includes Disney+ and ESPN+.
