I've had issues with the Pik TV iPhone app when I have to pause the show I'm watching. When I come back, it sometimes glitches out and closes the show. When I go to reopen, it has started all the way at the beginning of the episode and there is no way to skip forward. Right now I got 40 minutes into a show and had to start over. I now need to let the episode play in the background for 40 minutes before I can pick up where I left off.
Besides helping with a glitch, this would also be helpful when you have watched part of a show elsewhere and want to jump into the middle of the episode.
I understand Telus wants the commercials to be unskippable, but you need to be able to jump forward in an episode.
