Unlike some services, you can skip commercials on recorded shows by either fast forwarding or skipping ahead 15 seconds.
You can start watching recorded content while the the show is still recording. There is no way to pad recordings, so make sure you extend your recordings to include the next episode so you don’t miss anything.

Almost all of the channels offer on demand content, with just a few exceptions (like Animal Planet) having no VOD content.
You won’t be able to fast-forward through on demand content, but you can continue watching where you left off.
We had lots of playback issues with AT&T TV NOW’s on demand content: videos would often fail to load or freeze during playback. But it seems to have improved a bit with their latest app update.
72-Hour Rewind Feature
72-Hour Rewind allows you to access shows that aired in the last 72 hours. It is available on over 30 channels (mostly cable networks). However, it has similar restrictions as on demand content (you cannot rewind or fast-forward).
Channel Surfing Feature
Channel Surfing allows you to flip through channels with your remote. AT&T TV NOW is the only streaming service that made it easy to change channels like you are watching traditional cable/satellite TV. It takes about 2.5 seconds to switch channels, which is slightly better than average.
