Stream with Roku

Hello, I’ve been a Stream with Roku for a few months, before that, Satellite for close to 30 years. 
I’m currently on Choice and thinking of going to Premiere, my question, as a Roku Streamer will I still be able to use the Cloud/DVR for my premium channels? I don’t want to get the Box. Anything that I should know, would be helpful. Thx

Hello @doo4usc44, yes, with DIRECTV STREAM, you can use Cloud DVR storage, and you don't need a box. Your basic plan comes with 20 hours of recording, or you can increase it to unlimited for an additional $10 per month.

My new Roku Express 4k will NOT connect to DirecTV Stream. I was on the phone with Support for an hour and it is still not working. I was told the issue would be escalated and to keep checking. Has anyone else had their issue resolved?

Since your issue is unrelated to the topic of this thread, you should start a new thread with an appropriate subject - you are much more likely to get help that way.
