Sky has confirmed that its Restart feature will roll out in the UK later this year.
The service, which allows viewers to jump back to the start of a movie broadcast that has already begun, has been available in Italy for some time.
“One of the most popular features among our Italian customers is called ‘Restart’. It’s a simple but very clever idea that allows customers to go back to the start of a movie,” Sky CEO Jeremy Darroch told a press conference. “We’ll bring it to the UK later this year – just one easy example of sharing best practice across the group.”
Restart is currently limited exclusively to movie content, and there is no word if Sky intends to extend it to additional TV programming.
