On Star TV and Star TV+ we offer you the ability to record shows. No longer do you need to have a large DVR recorder in your home, we store the recordings for you in the cloud. For $9.95 per month, you can subscribe to our NVR (Network Video Recording) option. This will give you the ability to store 300 Gigabytes of video (approx. 150 hours of storage). At any given time, you can record as many shows at a time as you have streams of video. (example - 5 streams of video – record 5 shows at one time).

Yes, you can buy more NVR storage to suit the needs of your household. If you want more storage than the 300 Gig you currently have, you have the following choices:

  • 500 Gig - $11.95 (approx. 300 hours of storage) and 5 record streams
  • 1 TB - $14.95 (approx. 500 hours of storage) and 7 record streams
