The first step to recording a series on directv is to sign in to your DIRECTV account using your user id and password. Once you’ve logged in, you will need to select the show or program that you want to record from your DIRECTV app on Apple TV or via your DIRECTV computer or laptop. To do this, navigate to the program guide and find the title that you want to record. You can then choose to record either the episode or the entire series. After you’ve recorded your program, it will be available in the DVR Playlist on your DIRECTV device.
Setting up a recurring recording on a series is as simple as finding the show in the guide or with search and selecting the REC button on your remote. You can also set up a series link in the DIRECTV app on your phone or tablet. If you have a DIRECTV Genie, you can also schedule a series to record automatically by navigating to the DIRECTV menu on your account online or in the DIRECTV app.
Depending on your service package, you may be charged for utilizing the DVR feature of your DIRECTV account. However, if you have a Genie receiver and the DIRECTV app on your smartphone, you can easily save shows for later without the use of a data plan. To do this, simply download the DIRECTV app and sign in to your account with your user id and password. Once logged in, go to the program guide and search for the show that you want to record or select it from your list of favorites.
