DirecTV Now is rolling out an updated app for web browsers, iOS and Apple TV, expanding its cloud DVR program to all customers and adding and local channel streaming on-the-go. Subscribers can record 20 hours of programming, for up to 30 days, at no cost beyond the $35-per-month base price.

"We changed up the look and feel of the app, putting your most-watched channels and favorite programs front and center", DirecTV Now said on its website Tuesday. The new version of the DirecTV Now app will be available for Android, Amazon Fire TV, and Roku devices in the next few weeks. The redesign prioritizes users' most-watched shows and favorites, and allows you to watch your current stream while browsing for other things to watch. And users will be able to access their local channels, like ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC, when they're away from their home market. New episodes on select channels will be available on-demand after airing, so you don't have to worry about setting up a recording prior. Record an entire series or just one episode on nearly all our channels. Don't want to watch cartoons with the kids? By default, you'll get two streams included, but you can get a third stream for $5 per month. Fast forward and rewind at will. No need for a box at home or to use up the memory in your smartphone - it's all in the cloud!

If you happen to jump into a live episode late, you can return to the beginning of that episode and immediately start recording. You'll be able to record up to 100 hours and keep it stored up to 90 days, for $10 per month.

NES and SNES Classic Editions to return
Pre-orders sold out in advance of the launch and those hoping to buy one in-store were met with long lines and empty shelves . There will be no increase in the NES Classic Edition price for its return, as it will still be sold at $59.99.

The service, first launched in December 2016, joins a competitive field of other over-the-top, "skinny bundle" pay-TV packages - and the enhancements promise to give DirecTV Now more firepower in vying with rivals. For example, subscribers who live in L.A. can now watch the local TV stations in NY or other areas if they're traveling (depending on availability of local channels on DirecTV Now). So, for example, your local FOX network will be available even if you're in a different state.

Entertainment, Uninterrupted - you'll never miss a beat with our new layout, because your stream will be playing in the background, or on a pop-up.
