There's a new DirectTV Now app for Android that includes a major update. The new version features Cloud DVR that allows users 20 hours of free recording. The interface has also been updated to emphasize your most watched shows and local channel access. Here's a few details from the release.

The feature provides twenty hours of free recording, allowing you to watch, pause, fast forward and rewind your favorite shows or series virtually anytime and anywhere you want for up to 30 days. You’ll be able to record up to 100 hours and keep it stored up to 90 days, for $10 per month, later this summer.

If you are a DirectTV user, let us know how this new app is working for you.
another 10 bucks a month if you want to use it. time to dig out the old vcr :) What gets me, is it seems you are paying for your shows twice if you record them. you are paying for the stream but if unable to watch when they dictate, you have to pay for it again to save it so you can watch it at your convenience.
