With the latest tvOS, iOS and Android updates, you'll now have options for what happens when you tune into a Virtual Channel:
- Live - Tunes in live just like it used to.
- Start From Beginning - Starts the currently airing program from the beginning
- Ask Before Starting - Prompts you before it starts, just like the Resume prompt for recordings.
- In Player Button - Tunes in live like normal with a button showing, offering you the ability to start it from the beginning.
In Player Button is the default.
Additionally, the In Player Button option is now available as a Resume option for the rest of your recordings. This is also the new default. With this option, your playback will start immediately, without being asked first, but then you'll have the option to start from the beginning if you'd like to.
Additionally, Virtual Channels can now be rewound and fast forwarded, without being penalized by the current time. No more weird skipping or not being able seek around.
Edit: Updated to include Android
