Pause and rewind?

I am a YoutubeTV customer wanting to switch to Directv Streaming for Bally Sports purposes.  Can I pause and rewind shows like I can with YTTV?  I signed up with Spectrum tv streaming and quickly realized it sucked.  Dropped it quickly.  Thanks for helping me.

Yes. You can record, pause, and rewind DirecTV Stream recordings.

Thank you for the help.  I have subscribed.  Exploring now, and I really like it so far.  Spectrum is a joke compared to this.

Yes, you can Fast Forward and Rewind and Pause and you can record like a regular DVR and keep your recordings for up to 9 months just like youtube.  If you get a Directv Streaming Box which I highly recommend it is like you have cable/sat and you can stream up to 20 devices while at home and 3 devices while on the go.

I'm using Roku right now on 4 different tvs.  So far so good.  If it goes south, I'll look into the Directv device. For now, I am so happy.  So glad I looked beyond Spectrum and gave Directv a chance.  When I asked, Spectrum's "chat rep" told me there was no streaming service that would allow me to pause and rewind live tv.  I advised YTTV surely does allow this as it was the service I was currently using.  He quickly added "well Spectrum hopes to have these features soon."  What if I hadn't known?  I would have fallen for it.  Happy to be a Directv customer.  Please, Lord, make it last. No whammies.

I really like it, it has been the best service that I have had and I tried a lot before coming to DirecTV stream but I have been happy.  So I think you will be happy with it but I highly recommend getting the Directv Stream box through them you can get a refurbished one from them for 49.99 and it comes with a 1-year warranty and it gives you a feel of Sat/Cable and you can use voice control similar to Roku and you can type in the channel # on the control to turn directly to what channel you want so you don't have to scroll through all the channels to find what you want that is the only drawback to using the Roku to stream it.
