AT&T TV Adds “Pause on Live” Feature to Roku Devices to Pause, FF, and Rewind Live TV
AT&T TV has pushed a major update to Roku users that makes time shifting easier.
Customers can now pause, rewind, and fast-forward Live TV across channels, with AT&T TV on their Roku streaming player and Roku TV. When paused on a channel, AT&T TV will automatically save the last hour of programming.
Previously, this feature was only available to those using AT&T TV Android TV box. It is expected that the feature will roll-out to additional devices including Apple TV and iOS in the near future.
This has been a major request for sports fans, who have jumped to AT&T TV to stream their local Regional Sports Network. Currently, they are the only Live TV Streaming Service to carry Bally Sports RSNs as part of their $84.99 a month “Choice” Plan.
In addition, AT&T TV has added a “15 Second Back Button” on Live TV, which can be activated using the “Instant Replay” button (⟲) on your Roku remote. There is also a thumbnail preview when you scrub through the programming when it is paused.
They have also added a feature where when watching a recording, which is still airing live, you can access the “Live” programming with a single tap. There is a new “LIVE” button, which will take you into the live telecast.
