DVR Feature carries an important place in the cable TV world. When it comes to Sling TV, it offers Cloud DVR Storage which continuously increases on upgrades. Its regular subscription gives you 50 hours of recording. It also has an upgrade called Cloud DVR Plus Package which gives you 200 hours of DVR Storage at just 5$ per month.

5.Video On Demand service

You are just the list of live TV channels readily available, but you must be wondering about the Video on Demand (VOD) service. The answer is YES! Sling TV has a VOD service, and it is the channels that decide the movies and series that are made available to stream on-demand. 

Conclusion

Is Sling TV worth it? That depends on your preference of content. For us, we look at its VOD service, channels, price, and consider it a better option than cable TV. Even with the extra add-ons, it is a strong competitor in the market. Whether you prefer live TV over VOD service or vice versa, Sling TV still stands as a great competitor for us and will be a gateway to some great shows to stream during the winters of Canada. Happy streaming!
