The TVNZ+ app behaves differently between my Android phone and AppleTV 4K when viewing some live programs. On my phone I can restart the 6pm news from the start while it is still being broadcast (e.g. at 6.30pm).

The TVNZ+ app on the Apple TV does not allow me to restart the news from the beginning, if still running. I have to wait till 7pm before I can start watching it on demand. Note, I'm using the News as an example because the "Watch from Start" functionality is limited to only certain programs due to licensing restrictions.

Does anyone know of streaming devices (excluding phones, tablets and pc/laptops) for which the TVNZ app allows "Watch from Start"?

I thought this behaviour wasn’t present across the board. Should petition them to add that functionally to the Apple TV app.

Not sure it’s part of the iOS app either, nope it’s not.

This works on Apple TV, I use this often for news at lunchtime

I have it stored as favourite and can switch on TV at say 12:15, go to favorite then select current episode

It then has "watch from beginning" or "watch live" options

Watch from beginning will start with 5 mins of the chase which you can skip past and watch start of news / skip commercials etc.

Yea I do it all the time on my Apple TV 4K.
Add whatever show to your list then if that show has started and is currently playing on live tv you can go to your list and select to play it from there.
It will then ask if you want to start from the beginning or watch live.

Thank you. This exactly what I have done, but I can't see those options. I may have to delete the app and reinstall to see if that fixes it.
