Record a specific sports team

I recently switched to DirecTV Stream (from Dish Network), I have previously had regular DirecTV, on Stream I do not see where I can setup to record all games of a specific sports team.  I would like to record all 49er games and all Warrior games, but when I select a game and try to record the series it wants to record ALL NFL games or ALL NBA games and not just those to a specific team.  When I had previous services with physical equipment I used to be able to select favorite teams and it would record all their games, I do not see that type of option available through the Stream.  Any help is appreciated.

Hi @spocheld, we're happy to help!

By clicking here (
https://direc.tv/2X8HpJH) you can find all the information about Record and watch shows with cloud DVR with your DIRECTV STREAM services. Also want to inform that some of the features may vary between Satellite and Streaming services.

Please let us know how it goes.

Yeah @DIRECTVhelp , that was a spectacularly unhelpful response.  The OP asked about a very specific feature, and you added nothing.

@spocheld - that is a feature that the DirecTV Stream DVR capability doesn't offer.  The best that can be managed at this time is by searching (using the search bar) for the team, you can get a page showing all games for that team for (roughly) the next 2 weeks, and you can select each to record separately.  There have been requests for the "record my team" feature for a long time, but under AT&T ownership there was very little in the way of feature additions to the service.  There have been some under DirecTV already, so perhaps this will get added too (eventually).

@Jrandomuser thanks for the response, that's unfortunate they do not offer that feature since sports is one of the main reasons people pay for cable/satellite service anymore, aside from that I really am enjoying the Stream compared to regular DirecTV service.

I have struggled with this for months and search all over the forums. And I think I have an answer.

go to search and type in the name of your team (“golden state warriors”). Then, crucially do a KEYWORD search. It will then let you select genre (sports) and sport (basketball). You can then tell it to record all shows that match the keyword. 

You’ll get a couple randoms in there (“warriors postgame live”) but it will catch the games. I set it to keep 10 episodes, first run only, recording +30mins.
