Hulu’s Cloud DVR adds more control over what episodes to record

Hulu TV subscribers will have more choices of what to record when they add a show to “My Stuff” for automatic recording. Instead of simply recording new episodes, viewers can tell it to stash reruns too, or just bookmark the show without recording episodes at all. For shows already in MY Stuff, users can go in and adjust the settings as they prefer. – Richard Lawler, Engadget http://engt.co/2nV8N8v

Plex can beam Live TV broadcasts on Roku

Roku devices are now getting Plex Live TV, too. But there’s a catch: You can’t yet schedule recordings through Plex DVR on the streaming player. Plus, the perk is still reserved for Plex Pass subscribers (who pay $5 per month, $40 per year, or $120 lifetime for a bunch of extras). To soften the blow, Roku owners will be able to watch recordings from other supported platforms, including iOS, the Plex web app, Android, Android TV, Apple TV and iOS. – Saqib Shah, Engadget http://ift.tt/2xzQH3j
