Rewind and pause channels

I use my ROKU remotes to watch streaming TV. When I am watching Youtube TV I am able to rewind and pause the channels I am watching. It's a very nice feature.

When I switch over to The ROKU channel, I can find the guide and find channels that I am interested in watching but when I am watching a channel, I haven't been able to figure out how to rewind what I am watching and pause it too.

Is this possible and if so, how can I do this with my ROKU remote?

Re: Rewind and pause channels

If you're watching Live TV channels within The Roku Channel you can't pause or rewind which is beyond stupid and a giant step backwards for technology.

Re: Rewind and pause channels

For real...... I just got my first Roku after dropping AT&T U-Verse.  You are telling me I can't pause the Live TV on the Roku channel?  If we are going to go backwards..... go all in.  Go back to 13 channels, no TV after midnight, and no cartoons except on Saturday mornings!  The ability to pause live TV.... at least for 30 minutes or so..... should be standard.  I feel like I just bought a cool car, only to find that it doesn't have power steering, power brakes, and I have to manually wind up the windows.
