Restart Features

When did restart only become available on Primary Channels?  You used to be able to restart on channels like USA and Syfy.


What good is this feature if it is suddenly so truncated?  Are you bucking  for selling dvr features?  Disgusting.

Restart only works with "on Demand" and has been that way from day 1

I think elliotmeyers1 is referring to "Start Over," where the subscriber could start live TV from the beginning if he or she missed the beginning of a show.
