AT&T will be introducing a new feature in its set top box, allowing users to pause live TV and rewind it up to two hours. The company’s able to accomplish this by using an app on Apple TV, Roku or iOS devices. This has been something that other companies have been trying for years without success.
AT&T TV customers who have an Apple TV, iOS, or Roku device will soon be able to stop and rewind live television. While this seems like a feature that most people would expect to have, AT&T TV customers didn’t have it. If they weren’t using the company’s own streaming player, that is.
Due to the absence of required gear or the requirement for specialists to install, services like AT&T TV make it easy to view live TV channels. While AT&T TV has a long list of compatible devices, it doesn’t mean the experience was the same on all of them. For example, AT&T TV’s own streaming player features the ability to pause and rewind live TV, although such functionality was mostly absent from other companies’ applications.
This looks to be changing now. Users have reported that the option to stop and rewind live TV has begun to go live during the last week. Roku users, in particular, have been reporting issues since earlier this week. The same complaints are also pouring in for users using Apple TV and iOS devices to access the service.
The user reports correspond to the most current app changes. The AT&T TV Apple TV and iOS applications, for example, were upgraded today (July 16). Unfortunately, the option to stop and rewind isn’t mentioned in the changelog, but the timing is unlikely to be a coincidence, so users should make sure the app is up to date to have access to the better playback controls. For reference, the newest update also enhances Siri search, according to the changelog.
A better user experience in advance of a rebrand?
Pausing and rewinding live TV videos is likely to be a very handy function, and one that many AT&T TV customers have been requesting for quite some time. While AT&T has previously focused the functionality on its own devices, the addition of Apple TV, iOS, and Roku devices will assist to bring the experience on third-party devices more in line.
There have been recent hints that the company may be rebranding shortly. With AT&T in the midst of spinning off its video assets into a separate DirecTV firm, there’s a good chance the service will be renamed DirecTV Stream. While it does not seem that much will change with AT&T TV’s live TV plans, other aspects of a subscription, such as device compatibility and features, may begin to align ahead of that eventual transition.

A diplomatic boycott of the Beijing 2022 Olympics is “something we’re exploring,” according to US President Joe Biden. On November 18, he made the comment during a meeting with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in the Oval Office of the White House.
The query elicited no answer from Trudeau. On November 17, CNN was informed by a White House source that Biden will not attend the games, which are set for February 4-20, 2022.
A diplomatic boycott of the Winter Olympics would bar US officials from attending the games, but athletes would still be able to compete, according to The Hill.
The International Olympic Committee has previously said that the Beijing Olympics will be available to Chinese visitors but not to tourists from other countries, according to CNN.
Pelosi is pushing for a boycott.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a Democratic Party leader, had indicated support for a diplomatic boycott in May, according to The Hill. According to the news source, she said that the United States should not behave “as if nothing is wrong with the Olympics moving to China.”
Cotton calls for a “total and complete boycott.”
At a news conference, Republican Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas said that the United States “should launch a full and comprehensive boycott of China’s genocidal Olympics.” “I hate that this would preclude nearly 300 of America’s world-class athletes from participating in the Olympics,” Cotton said in statements shared on Twitter. He said that Biden should have attempted to have the Olympics relocated to a location other than China.

The New York Times remembered that it had published an op-ed essay by U.S. President Barack Obama regarding the Beijing Olympics.
On Eunomia, you may discuss this news.
Senator Mitt Romeny, one of the organizers of the Salt Lake City Olympic Games in 2002. According to the newspaper, he advocated for a diplomatic and economic boycott that would not impede sports participation.
In 1980, President Jimmy Carter was successful in preventing American athletes from competing in the Soviet Union’s Olympic Games.
According to Frédéric Mégret of McGill University in Canada, Carter’s boycott harmed American athletes more than it harmed the Soviet Union, according to the New York Times.
South Korean disappointment
According to Kwon Mee-yoo, writing in The Korea Times, the threat of a diplomatic boycott seemed to kill any hope of South Korean President Moon Jae-in achieving a durable peace on the Korean peninsula. According to Kwon, Moon had anticipated that the presence of heads of state and diplomats at the Olympics Games would allow for informal conversations, maybe leading to a peace accord.
Moon’s chances of reaching a deal before his successor’s election next year would be shattered by a diplomatic boycott, according to Kwon.
The Beijing Olympics are the subject of “an lively discussion.”
According to the New York Times, Canada’s and European nations’ governments were encouraged to boycott the games. According to the article, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said that America and its partners have been debating how to deal with the issue. Blinken told the publication, “It’s a lively dialogue.”

Fans of the 2D RPG Child of Light who have been waiting for a new installment in the series should rejoice, as Creative Director Patrick Plourde has announced that a new game is in development.
Plourde called the title “Aurora and Igniculus’ next big adventure,” but said it won’t be a sequel to Child of Light. A separate developer, it seems, will be involved in the project.
“This time, it’s for real. However, it is not CoL 2. We aren’t the creators, either “Plourde expressed himself on Twitter. “Aurora’s narrative will be continued when she crosses (sic!) the Mirror at the conclusion of CoL in a crossover game. It’s a lot of fun, unexpected, and built by developers who are fans of the IP.”
Plourde stated in a follow-up tweet that Child of Light 2 was written but never greenlit.
While the fact that a full-fledged sequel is still in the works is certain to upset some fans, seeing Child of Light return after more than seven years is bound to satisfy many admirers of the original.
“Early next year,” we’ll discover more about what this “crossover game” is. If waiting until then is too much for you, or you haven’t played the original, you can save 70% on it during the Steam Autumn Sale 2021, bringing the price down to £3.74$4.49/4,49€.
We commended 2014’s game in our review for its “beautiful vistas, character, and adversary designs,” which, along with its meaningful plot, made persevering through its more monotonous parts well worth it.
If you’ve already played with Aurora and Igniculus and want a break from the AAA releases that generally flood the last few months of each year, our selection of the finest independent games should have something for you.

Highlights of the article:
- Peyton Manning is a quarterback who has won many Super Bowls, who grew up a New Orleans Saints supporter, has said that he no longer supports the team.
- Archie Peyton, Peyton’s father, was the Saints’ starting quarterback for nearly a decade.
- In Super Bowl 44, the five-time NFL MVP memorably battled with the Saints, and he’s still bitter about it.
In a parallel world, Peyton Manning, the legendary Indianapolis Colts quarterback, may have spent his post-Thanksgiving feast rooting for the New Orleans Saints. We don’t believe we’re a part of that universe, at least not yet.
Manning grew up cheering for the Saints before becoming a five-time NFL MVP and two-time Super Bowl winner. If his choice of club seems odd, keep in mind that his father, Archie, was the starting quarterback for the hapless Saints for 11 seasons and earned two Pro Bowls.
So, what caused Manning to sever his ties? It all began with a single night in Miami…
Peyton Manning understood when it was time to lay his New Orleans Saints fanaticism to rest.

When ESPN revealed that Eli and Peyton Manning would join up on Monday Night Football, fans were ecstatic. Even the Worldwide Leader wouldn’t have anticipated it would become so popular so fast with Peyton and Eli. When it comes to exposing some intriguing personal information and exchanging jabs over head size, the brothers’ natural connection shows through every time they’re on.
The issue of Peyton’s old Saints love came up in discussion during the Nov. 22 show. We say “former” because, according to Eli, his elder brother no longer supports the 2009 NFC champs.
“You grew up a Saints fan and then turned your back on them,” Eli added.
Peyton, who went 3-2 against the Saints in five regular-season games and tossed 14 touchdowns against four interceptions, didn’t refute the report.
“You tend to forsake them after you lose in the Super Bowl to them.”
We feel safe stating the older Manning’s choice is fair since we haven’t played in the Super Bowl and will never participate in one.
We can’t say we blame Manning for being a little sore after Super Bowl 44.
Manning finished his career with a 3-3 record against the Saints. As you may have guessed, the additional defeat occurred in Super Bowl 44 on February 7, 2010. In the Colts’ 31-17 defeat, Manning completed 68.8% of his throws for 333 yards, a touchdown, and an interception.
With 3:24 remaining and the Saints on their 31-yard line, the famed gunslinger planned to strike Pro Bowl receiver Reggie Wayne for a first down. The pass was intercepted by Saints cornerback Tracy Porter, who returned it 74 yards for a score, ensuring that the Lombardi Trophy would not be returned to Indianapolis for the second time in four years.
Again, it’s difficult to blame Manning if he stopped cheering for the Saints after that night. As much as he admired star quarterback Drew Brees and head coach Sean Payton, they were the ones who made sure he didn’t win a second championship in a Colts outfit.
Don’t forget that Manning, the No. 1 overall choice in 1998, needed almost a decade to lead the Colts to the Super Bowl. Despite defeating the Chicago Bears in February 2007, he was just one play away from losing the Lombardi Trophy for the second time.
Manning, at the very least, received some retribution less than three years later. The 14-time Pro Bowler then destroyed the Saints’ defense for 305 yards, three touchdowns, and no interceptions in a 34-14 win on Oct. 28, 2012, in his first season with the Denver Broncos.
Over the previous decade and a half, Manning and the Saints have at least acted professionally.

Manning may no longer be a fan of the Saints, and he may not even like them. He has, however, maintained a cordial relationship with the brand and its supporters.
Despite missing the 2011 season due to a neck ailment, he went with the Colts to a road game against the Saints in October of that year. He signed signatures and interacted with the New Orleans fans before his Colts were humiliated, 62-7, on Sunday Night Football, on way to a 2-14 season.
Manning spent a day to the Saints’ training camp for a guest a few months after retiring in 2016. In a statement released by the Saints, neither he nor the club mentioned Super Bowl 44, which may have been a good choice.
The Saints applauded Manning on his Hall of Fame induction earlier this year. He was described by the club as a “native son” with a “great career.” What a touching story. Maybe there’s still hope for this romance.
By the way, there’s still time in the 2021 season for Peyton to wear a Saints jersey on the ManningCast. Perhaps that’s what Eli has in mind for an early Christmas present.
