Fubo’s Unlimited DVR Upgrade Limits How Long You Can Store Recordings


fuboTV DVR Recorded

After announcing plans to offer an unlimited DVR in January, Fubo began rolling out the DVR upgrade to all new and existing subscribers earlier today. While this change does unlock unlimited recordings, it also now limits how long those recordings can be stored for.

Previously, Fubo subscribers were able to keep recordings permanently. If the user didn’t manually delete a recording, neither would Fubo. That’s now changed. An updated help post confirms that recordings are now only stored for a maximum of nine months.

Streaming Better reached out to Fubo to confirm this change is a result of the unlimited DVR rollout and that was confirmed to be the case.

Although a limitation, this is not an uncommon one. Many of the streaming services that offer an unlimited DVR do limit how long recordings can be kept for. Other than Philo, which allows recordings to be kept for up to one year, DirecTV Stream, Hulu Live TV and YouTube TV all also limit storage to nine months.

Considering Fubo’s upgrade has only just rolled out, it remains unclear when exactly the countdown begins for existing recordings, or whether they will be protected. Either way, Fubo subscribers can now expect all new recordings to be automatically deleted after nine months.
