Browse through your live TV shows
When you select a channel, Helix begins recording the show, so you can control your viewing. You can pause the show, go back to the broadcast, rewind, and sometimes even fast forward. You can rewind up to 25 minutes but cannot rewind further than the time when you tuned in to the channel.
The Replay function lets you watch the show from the beginning. When theicon appears next to a show in the TV Listings, this means you can replay it in its entirety. To use this function:
- In the Guide: select your desired content, press on the Voice remote, then select Restart.
- While content is playing: press and select Restart.
Replay the next episode
The Lookback function enables you to watch a show as soon as it ends, without having to record it yourself or waiting for it to be available in the on-demand section. This function enables you to watch a show that you missed up to 72 hours after its broadcast (this period varies depending on the content). This convenient feature is available on about 100 of the most popular channels.
With these three user-friendly viewing options, you’ll never miss any of your favourite content!
