Fast forward & ad rules on Apple TV

Fast forward and advertisement rules depend on the channel and whether the program is on-demand. There are three experiences:

  1. You can fast forward through anything you saved! 👏
  2. You can fast forward but the last ad break is required (... unless you watched it already). You can't start fast forwarding during an unwatched ad break.
  3. You cannot fast forward past the furthest point you have watched.
