BBC iPlayer gets live rewind and restart
The BBC’s essential catch-up TV service just got even better with Live Restart.
The UK is rightly proud of its British Broadcasting Corporation, which has pioneered broadcasting for over 80 years from the days of radio right into the internet age and the ground-breaking BBC iPlayer catch-up TV service.
And that service is just about to get a little bit better with the introduction of Rewind and Restart capabilities on its live broadcasts.
Rewind and Restart options are being added to help you make the most of Euro 2012 football matches, Wimbledon and importantly for the London 2012 Olympics coverage.
Called Live Restart, it gives you the ability to skip back to the beginning of a live broadcast or rewind a current broadcast by up to two hours.
The system will be rolled out to the desktop BBC iPlayer website and later to mobile devices.
