Step 5: Save and Enjoy

After you’ve finished recording, simply stop the screen recording software. It will give you the option to save the recording to a location of your choice. Pick a folder that’s easy to find, so you can access your recorded videos whenever you want.

Recording Hulu Live is a breeze when you have the right tools and know-how. With a computer, reliable internet, and screen recording software, you can capture your favorite shows and movies effortlessly. So go ahead and give it a try today!

When you sign up for Hulu, you also have the option to subscribe to its Live TV streaming service. You can access this through the Hulu streaming app on Apple TV. If you’re using an iPhone or iPad, you can use the separate ‘Hulu for Live TV’ app.

With Hulu Live, you can watch over 50 broadcast and cable channels. You can stream live TV to any device that supports the Hulu App, such as Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Xbox, iPad, Windows Phone, iPhone, Android, and more.

Hulu also offers a service called Cloud DVR, which lets you record live TV and watch it whenever you want. In this article, I’ll explain the easiest way to do this.

What is Cloud DVR?

Cloud DVR is a feature that comes with Hulu for Live TV. It gives you storage space to save your recorded content. You can record any show, live sports event, or news broadcast, and then add it to the ‘My Stuff’ section. After that, you can access it just like regular Hulu content.

When you subscribe to Hulu for Live TV, you’ll get 50 hours of Cloud DVR storage. This should be enough if you delete recordings after you watch them. The monthly subscription costs $40.

If you feel like 50 hours isn’t enough, you can upgrade to Enhanced Cloud DVR, which gives you 200 hours of storage. This upgrade will cost an additional $15 per month.

How to Record Hulu for Live TV on Your Cloud DVR

If you want to record a live show on Hulu, all you have to do is add it to your ‘My stuff’ section. Once you do that, it will automatically record when it airs, and you can watch it whenever you want. Follow these steps to set up recording:

  1. Open Hulu on your device. If you have an iOS device, it’s probably called ‘Hulu for Live TV’. On Android, Apple TV, and other devices, it’s called ‘Hulu app’.
  2. Browse through Live TV until you find the show you want to record.
  3. Describe the content you’ve chosen.
  4. Click on ‘My stuff’. In some apps, it may be labeled as ‘My episodes’ instead.

After the content is broadcasted live and ends, Hulu Live will save it for you in your storage. From there, you can easily find it in the section called “My Stuff”.

Recording Choices

When using Hulu for Live TV, there are several convenient recording choices available to you.

For instance, if you add a TV show to your ‘My stuff’ list, the app will automatically record each new episode that airs. By toggling off the ‘Record series’ option, it won’t record upcoming episodes. Rather, it will serve as a shortcut to access any episode of that show available on Hulu.

Hey there! If you add your favorite sports team to ‘My stuff’, I’ll keep a record of every live game they play. But don’t worry, if you’d rather just follow their events without recording them, you can do that too. Just switch off the ‘Record games’ toggle.

How to Watch Content from Cloud DVR

Once you’re done recording content, you can watch it as long as it’s stored on your Cloud DVR. Here’s how:

  1. Open the Hulu App on your device.
  2. Select ‘My Stuff’. You’ll find it somewhere, depending on your device. Look for a white square with a checkmark in the center.
  3. You’ll see two options – Movies and TV shows. Sports, news broadcasts, music shows, and similar programs are all in the TV show category.
  4. Choose the content you want to watch and hit the play button.

How to Delete Content from Cloud DVR

If you have a basic 50-hour subscription, you’ll run out of space sooner or later. That means you’ll have to get rid of the things you no longer want to watch to make room for new stuff.

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Open the Hulu app on your device.
  2. Head over to ‘My Stuff’.
  3. In the horizontal menu, go right and select ‘Manage DVR’.
  4. Next to the content you want to delete, click on the ‘Remove’ icon. It looks like a horizontal white line inside a circle.
  5. Once the app asks for confirmation, click the ‘Delete’ button.

Manage ‘My Stuff’ Space Carefully

Be mindful of how much Cloud DVR storage you’re using. All your recorded content is stored from oldest to newest. If it starts running out of space, the app will automatically make room for new recordings. It’ll start by removing the oldest movies and shows first.

To avoid losing any precious content due to automatic removal, always make sure you have enough hours remaining to record new shows. Stay on top of it!
