The BBC has introduced a rewind and restart live TV function to the BBC iPlayer.
The Live Restart feature enables BBC iPlayer users on a PC to restart the live programme they are currently watching, or scroll back to watch programmes from the previous two hours.
Dave Price, Head of BBC iPlayer says: "We all know how frustrating it is when you're stuck in a traffic jam, or delayed on the tube, missing the critical start of your favourite BBC programme. Live Restart solves this by giving audiences control. With one simple click of a button viewers can skip back to the beginning of a live programme, ensuring they never miss a moment of their favourite BBC programmes."
The BBC will bring Live Restart to BBC iPlayer on mobiles, tablets and internet connected TVs, later this year.
BBC iPlayer is currently averaging around 190 million requests per month, with over 140m for TV programmes and around 46m for radio programmes, according to the latest BBC iPlayer performance figures.
