Can I record Abema TV?

ABEMA does not have a "screen recording" feature, but it does have a feature called "My Videos" that allows you to watch your favorite programs at any time, just like the recording and reservation feature.
"My Video is like a favorites list, and you can view a list of programs you have added to My Video.
If you use the program list or search function to add programs you want to record to My Video, you can use it as a recording list.
If there is a program that you cannot watch in real time, it is recommended to add it to "My Video" and watch it later if you miss it.
In other words, Abema TV does not have the recording function now, but you can download the content later.
