At a glance, here’s what you need to know about recording on Ignite TV:

  • Recording live TV and scheduling recordings has never been easier, thanks to Ignite TV’s simple, user-friendly interface and the innovative Voice Remote.
  • All recordings are kept in your Cloud PVR for one year, or until you reach the 200-hour limit.
  • Once the limit is reached, your recordings will start being automatically deleted, beginning with the oldest.
  • All your recordings can be easily downloaded to mobile devices using the Ignite TV app’s Download & Go feature.


With Cloud PVR, you can record and store up to 200 hours of HD or 4K content for up to one year!

I've Been Here Awhile

Do recordings that I delete get permanently deleted automatically after sitting a few days in the delete folder?


Hello and welcome to the Community @RAB12,


You've definitely come to the right place :)!


A deleted recording sits in Recently Deleted until it is permanently deleted, or until the program is automatically deleted to save storage.  A recording only has a one-year lifespan in your Cloud PVR! Once it reaches that limit, it will be deleted automatically and, unrecoverable.


Hope this helps :)!
