Start Over FAQs

What is Start Over? Where do I find it? Start Over is a feature included with your digital TV service that allows you to restart certain shows already in progress. To see if the channel you're watching supports Start Over, press the Select button on your remote. You'll be prompted with a menu of options if Start Over is available.

How do I get Start Over? Start Over is automatically included with your digital TV service - there is no need to sign up separately. If you have our digital TV service, you can begin using Start Over immediately.

What’s the difference between Start Over and a DVR? With DVRs, you set shows in advance to record and watch them later. DVRs also offer VCR-like functions like pause, rewind and fast-forward. With Start Over, you don't have to remember to set a show to record and can watch instantly, even if the show is already in progress.

Can I use Start Over at any point during a show? Yes, you can restart a Start Over-enabled program at any point during its broadcast. For example, if a program airs from 7 to 7:30, you will be able to restart it at any time during that half hour.
