Hi! I'm sorry to tell you that your Roku device doesn't offer recording options, like cloud DVR, so you cannot directly record videos or over-the-air streams on it.

Luckily, you can now get the task done with the help of some other tools. One is to use HDMI cables, a computer, and a professional video recorder. The other one is to find some Roku streaming channels offering the cloud DVR feature. If you are still a little confused, continue reading, and I will explain them in detail:

Way 1. Record on Roku Device with a Video Recorder

To adopt this method, you need to prepare some HDMI cables, a computer, and a professional screen recorder. The HDMI cables connect the computer to your Roku device. Then, you will see the video on your PC, and you can start recording your favorite over-the-air stream!

As for the reliable video recorder, I always use EaseUS RecExperts. This software supports almost any screen recording activities on your desktop. Apart from basic recording features, it offers a schedule recording tool, an auto-stop feature, and more to improve your recording experience. Most importantly, there is no watermark or time limit for your recording!

Way 2. Record Roku streams via Cloud DVR

Another way is to find a streaming channel that lets you record movies and shows and store them online. According to my experience, here are some options:

  • YouTube TV
  • Sling TV
  • Hulu Live
  • Fubo

I hope you can adopt my answer!
