As expected, KlowdTV, a startup that has launched a selection of micro pay TV packages tailored for cord-cutters that are delivered over the top, has launched a cloud DVR product that starts at an extra $1 per month.
Here’s how KlowdTV’s DVR service tiers stack up:
-3 hours for $1 per month
-12 hours for $4 per month
-30 hours for $10 per month
-60 hours for $20 per month.
The first hour, however, is free, an official said.
KlowdTV said users can record multiple shows at once, and can record as many as the level of cloud storage subscribed to can hold. The range of storage options is there to accommodate both light users and binge watchers.
KlowdTV CEO and cofounder Bill O’Hara told Multichannel News (subscription required) last fall that the company, founded in June 2014, had a cloud DVR product in beta.
KlowdTV’s specialty is contract-free offerings of several micropackages as well as some channels that are available a la carte. Its sports package, for example, runs $3 per month, and features channels such as beIN Sports, GolTV, FNTSY Sports network, Outdoor Sport Channel, and FightBox HD, among others.
KlowdTV, which currently offers access to almost 60 channels, including Bloomberg TV, has not released subscriber numbers.
The service is currently supported on Web browsers, Android and iOS mobile devices, Roku players, Amazon Fire TV, Sony and Hisense smart TVs, TiVo, and Samsung Blu-ray players and other devcies that support OperaTV’s app platform.
