    Can I pause and rewind while watching LIVE TV with this new Apple TV and remote like I could with my DVR cable box?

    At present there is not a way to pause or rewind LIVE TV via the app. The On Demand content varies depending on the content restrictions set by the content/channel creators.

    I'll add to this, the reason you cannot pause or rewind using the app is that the app exclusively streams live TV. When you pause and rewind on a DVR, the DVR actually uses temporary recordings to rewind and pause.
