Sling TV is expanding its Cloud DVR service to a ton of new devices, including the Google Chrome browser, Chromecasts, Xbox One consoles, LG smart TVs, and Samsung’s 2016 and 2017 model smart TVs, via TechRadar.

The feature was previously available on other platforms where Sling TV is offered, like the Fire TV, Apple TV, and Sling’s Android and iOS apps. With the new expansion, you’ll be able to watch your recorded content from almost any device that works with Sling TV.

Sling TV’s DVR service costs $5 per month on top of whatever channel package you pay for, and it lets users store up to 50 hours of recordings indefinitely (although there are some channels that are ineligible for recording, including all Disney and ESPN channels). Other over-the-top services offer a DVR feature, including PlayStation Vue, YouTube TV, and Hulu’s live TV service. But unlike Sling TV, those services include it in their base plans, which are admittedly more expensive.
