YouTube TV’s DVR feature is now a lot more powerful
You can now pause, fast forward, and rewind shows for many more channels.
YouTube TV is jam-packed with features to help you get the most out of your cord-cutting lifestyle — one of which is a cloud DVR that allows you to record shows and watch them at a later date. On October 4, YouTube TV announced that it’s partnering with a bunch of networks to make its DVR even better.
YouTube TV has announced on Twitter that it’s partnering with AMC, Disney, Fox, NBC, and Turner to make their programming “immediately available for DVR playback.”
You asked, we listened. Enjoy more of your favorite recorded shows with full control to pause, rewind, & fast forward anytime during playback. Thanks to our partners @AMC_TV, @Disney, @FOXTV, @NBCUniversal & @Turner for making their content immediately available for DVR playback!

While some channels have already supported full DVR capabilities for recording shows and then being able to pause, rewind, and fast forward during playback, many big networks have blocked this and chose to instead offer video-on-demand programming — the main difference being you can’t fast forward through commercials when watching VOD.
DVR support for these new networks is available now, so have fun binging your favorite shows without having to mess with pesky commercial breaks.
