How to re-enable 4 hour stream time for the one app

I have been using the feature for when I sleep. Sometimes I accidently disable it, and I don't know how to re enable it for a single app. So far I've just been factory resetting the TV, but that has been rather painful to keep doing when I accidently press the button. If anyone knows how to re enable it for that specific app, that would be much appreciated.

Does this mean if I disable it, and re-enable it in the settings, it will re-enable it. Even after I pressed "Don't ask again for this channel?

Re: How to re-enable 4 hour stream time for the one app

Hi @Qortoroid,

Thanks for the follow-up question.

Please be advised that some selected streaming channels employ their own mechanism to cease data usage after a specific period of inactivity. These features will not be affected when you disable Bandwidth Saver.

We hope we have addressed your question appropriately, but please don't hesitate to let us know if you have any questions or additional feedback.


Best regards,
Mary
