Special features such as fast forward, rewind, or pause vary by channel. 

Fast forward, rewind, or pause is indicated by the color of the progress bar. A filled-in progress bar to the left of the play point indicates you may both pause and rewind your program. A full progress bar means you can fast-forward, rewind, or pause during the program, however, some on-demand programs will not allow you to skip commercials. A clear bar indicates you have no ability to fast-forward, rewind or pause the program. 

To use said features, if you're using a streaming device or gaming console, click the fast-forward, rewind, or pause buttons on your device remote or controller.
