How does DVR work on PlayStation Vue?

DVR functions out of the My DVR menu on the PlayStation Vue app. This section stores your recorded shows for you. The best part is that you don't need to filter through hundreds of channels to find the show you want to watch. All you have to do is search for the title and PlayStation Vue will find the channel for you. Even better, it records based on the show and not the channel, so you never have to worry about accidental recordings of shows that are airing at your shows usual time!

My DVR features

  • Recording live local shows.
  • Can not record shows from on-demand channels.
  • No scheduling conflicts because it records per show and not channel.
  • Storage for 28 days after the air date.
  • Fast forward through commercials on recorded shows!
  • Watch your recorded shows from any compatible PlayStation Vue device no matter where you are.
  • If Vue doesn't have the DVR rights for a given program or channel they provide On Demand episodes in its place, if available.
