This feature allows BEK EPIC IPTV users the ability to go back in the guide and begin watching an episode that has aired in the past. The most popular channels allow you to go back 72 hours. Select channels up to 12 hours. *Greyed out grid programs are not available for Restart TV

Within the Guide, navigate back in time to find the episode you would like to watch. Select the episode and select “Restart this Program” to re-watch any program that is available on the Guide.

When you’re watching a show as it is broadcast, you’re watching live TV. You can watch live TV by selecting a in progress show from the Guide. As you change channels, you’ll see a status bar at the bottom of the screen. This bar contains useful information, like the show title, time of airing, channel, whether the show is in HD, and what’s up next.

Trickplay allows you to watch live TV with the benefits of pause live features. You can choose PAUSE, PLAY, and REWIND/FAST FORWARD up to 3X.

  1. First, press the PAUSE button. You can pause live TV for up to 15 minutes. When you pause live TV, you see a Trick Play bar showing the program’s duration. The blue segment shows the portion of the hour that has been saved by EPIC. The thick white line marks your current point in time. When the white line is back in the blue segment, you’re “behind” live TV.

  2. If you need to go grab popcorn for your favorite program, you can now press PLAY to continue watching the show. You can rewind and fast forward from the moment you pressed the PAUSE button up to the current time. Note: with Live TV you can only use Trickplay within the part of the show you have already watched in real time. So, if you change channels, you will be unable to rewind past the point you started watching on that specific channel.

  3. Press PLAY at any time to return to normal speed.

To manage your settings, go to the Home screen and select the Settings gear icon.
