Can I restart programmes that have already started?

TV

Some, but not all, of the channel players let you restart live programmes.

BBC iPlayer’s Live Restart feature, for example, lets you jump back to the beginning of a programme without having to wait for it to end; you just need to press Watch from start.

ITV Hub also offers this option (you'll be shown a series of adverts before the programme actually starts) and All 4 will be launching it soon – we'll keep you posted.

To restart live programmes for BBC iPlayer and ITV Hub, go to the Freeview Play apps page and find the programme you want to watch.

For more help on this, it's best to consult the specific player:
