All SpeedVideo events are recorded, just like your home DVR. During any LIVE or past event, you can use your mouse and click or scrub back on the SpeedVideo player to the point where you wish to start watching. The player will then start playing back from that point, and the upper left corner will indicate that you are viewing in DVR mode. You can also pause LIVE video at any time and continue watching by pressing the play button.
There are many ways to enjoy LIVE events on SpeedVideo. Below are some basic instructions on using the SpeedVideo player and a list of ways you can watch SpeedVideo events where ever, and when ever you want!
