fuboTV Expands Series Recording Beta to Apple TV Devices

fuboTV has quietly extended the ability to record an entire series of a show to Apple TV. The company added the much requested feature on their web platform earlier this month, but hadn’t rolled it out to streaming media players.

Before the update, customers could only record an individual episode one at a time, meaning that if you wanted to watch every show of Big Bang Theory, you’d have to manually remember to record it every week.

During the beta, the feature is limited to only record new, first-run episodes of a show. So unfortunately, your binge session of every episode of Friends is going to have to wait. It doesn’t appear that the feature support live sports, so you won’t be able to record every game of your favorite team quite yet.

fuboTV Standard Plan ($55) includes 30 Hours of storage, but their Family Bundle ($60) includes their Cloud Plus DVR which allows you to record up to 500 Hours.
