Digital Video Recorder (DVR):

The Swig Stick uniquely offers a Patent Pending DVR function. The Swig DVR enables you to record films and shows from the SWIGFLIX selection. This function is ideal for watching movies and shows where broadband connection is not available or too unreliable for quality viewing.

The DVR function is also particularly beneficial for watching 4K films and shows, which require greater bandwidth for uninterrupted viewing that may be available. Even with sufficient bandwidth, the DVR function allows you to record the 4K film potentially uncompressed and in maximum, theatrical resolution (which far a file size far too large for typical real-time streaming) for an optimal viewing experience or home theatrical projection.

Swig DVR also makes new rental options possible, such as access to a full season of shows, though a single transaction. Saving to the Swig DVR is as simple as choosing to do so. You can delete a video saved on the internal storage easily by a long click on the video title.

The DVR on the Swig Stick offers the option of recording to Swig Stick’s internal memory (which is sizable to hold several films and shows, or to a SD Flash card (which can be inserted) or any external storage, via the USB option. The recorded content on Swig Stick has Patent Pending encryption that makes it impossible to play back the recorded content on anything other than the Swig Stick used to record the content (even if you use Swig Stick and record the content to an external storage). In other words, any content recorded using the SWIG DVR can only be played back on the specific Swig Stick used to record it. This unique solution, which offers content distributors unprecedented piracy protection, makes it possible for studios and distributors to make content available for home viewing enjoyment which otherwise may be restricted to theaters.
