If you are going to subscribe to it, you can record and save the latest TV shows to the cloud for up to 12 months with unlimited storage. This article shares how to record on Philo and save recorded videos without time limits, and how to record shows on Philo with its built-in feature.

How to Record on Philo without Time Limit

As what we talked about before, Philo does not set hard restrictions on recording times and quantity. It has generous storage that entitles you to record as many TV shows as you want. However, there is indeed a Philo recording limit. It only allows users to record and save shows in DVR for up to a year. After a year, the recorded videos will be automatically deleted.

From this point of view, if you want to keep the recorded shows for a longer time and avoid them from being automatically deleted, it is wise to select a reliable screen recorder like WorkinTool VidClipper to record on Philo. Consequently, you can back up shows on Philo for more than a year.
