    Am I missing something here?

    Is there not a way to advance to the live portion of a game?

    Last night, I started a game at the actual game time. During the middle of the game I decided to switch to a different room to finish watching the game. When I pulled the game up on the 2nd Apple TV, I could not find an option to start the game at the "live" time. All I could do, was start the game from the beginning??? I then tried to scrub forward and couldn't. The app would only start from the beginning of the game and I would have to watch the entire game again.

    Is this something you guys are seeing as well? Is there an option or setting I am missing?

    Thanks in advance for everyone's help!!

    I'm fairly certain when I watched a game last night it asked me if I want to start at the beginning or at the LIVE time

    Wow... I am not getting that. I will contact support then. I figured it wasn't a design flaw.

    no... It didn't give me that option at all... I checked again last nigh... Simply goes to the beginning. Checked both AppleTV 4's.

    I can verify that I get the same two options when I choose a game to watch within the app.

    It must be related to server locations around the country. Mine has been great all season.

    Note: You must pause first to scroll ahead since the most recent TVOS update.

    I noticed a lot of people on the support forum complaining about similar problems. I think they've been experiencing some widespread issues, which is unusual. The service is usually very reliable.

    It seems to be an Issue with the "Hide Scores" setting. I found if I turned off hide scores in settings that I could then watch live or from the beginning. The default is to hide scores and when that is on it only seems to start from the beginning of the game. This drove me nuts the first time I was trying to use it this year.

    I found the same thing. It seems to be related to hide scores.

    That said, even when I do choose to start the game from the beginning, there seems to be no easy way of skipping forward to live without existing the game and selecting it again. Other than holding down fast forward, or pressing the 10-second skip over and over again, there is no quick way to advance.
