Sling TV’s cloud DVR service provides 50 hours of storage for an additional $5 per month (Sling TV subs on the original Cloud DVR beta offering have access to 100 hours of storage).  

Sling TV reiterated that DVR functionality is not available on select channels (that list includes Disney and ESPN channels), and that it’s not presently supported on Samsung 2018 model smart TVs or its implementation on Comcast’s X1 platform.
