Catch’up TV

The ability for a viewer to play recently broadcast programs on demand, without having to decide to record them first. Typically, the service is proposed from a rolling buffer recorded at the origin level.

Individual broadcasters or channels may offer their own catchup TV service via a dedicated service.

Aggregators can also propose catch-up services from multiple channels in an EPG where one can select content from the linear guide.
