How to pause and rewind live TV using the Spectrum TV app?

edited February 22 in Spectrum TV App Tips, Resources & FAQs Feb 20, 2022

I just set up my new Spectrum TV service and am shocked that I cannot pause and rewind live TV. I see other comments about this and would like to know if this is going to be added any time soon. I also found it overly difficult to figure out how to send this comment. It should be much easier.

    Is there plans to make it available and, if so, when will it be available?

    Unfortunately we don't have any information on if or when this feature will be available. Your feedback is very important for use in determining future upgrades and service changes and we do appreciate you expressing your interest in this service.

    I just switched from YouTube TV and might switch back. The fact you can't pause and rewind live TV is ridiculous. FIX THIS! YouTube allows this and so do other live streaming options.

    When you pause or rewind live streaming content, a recording is started at the point that the programming is paused or recorded. Currently, this feature is not supported on the Spectrum TV App, however you can add CloudDVR, record programming and watch it at a later time. Pausing and rewinding is supported on CloudDVR recordings.

    At this time, the best option for pausing live TV with Spectrum video services is with a traditional set top box DVR.
