It seems like when streaming a live show using the Spectrum app one should be able to pause and rewind the show. When. watching a sporting event I often want to rewind to see a great play. Also there are times I need to pause a live show to get clothes out of the dryer, take something out of the oven, answer the phone or go to the bathroom. This seems like something basic that the Spectrum app should offer. Currently as I understand it, these are only available when watching a recording.

Thanks for your help.

    Hello @PK4309 and welcome to the Spectrum Community!

    The Spectrum TV app currently does not support pausing and rewinding Live TV. I can certainly pass along feedback to the development team indicating that this is a feature that you would like to see. I cannot say when or if this would be implemented, however, I will be sure to pass this along.
