BBC has added “Live Restart” to its iPlayer app. This will let Brits hit a button to rewind live TV up to two hours. Thus, if you miss the beginning of a live show you can just skip back to the beginning.

This handily closes the gap between live streaming and the watch-later service that lets you go back and catch TV shows aired in the past two weeks.
