Remove Resume Watching Episodes

Just Moved In

Is there any way to remove a show from the Resume section?  I made the mistake of watching an episode of The Big Bang Theory, and now it is forever in my Resume list.  It does not clear even when I watch the most recent episode either.

I requested this feature a while back:


Optik TV - Resume issue - TELUS Neighbourhood


You can clear your viewing history but that will remove all shows from the list. Another option is to select the last show in the series and watch/fast forward through it to the end and this seems to remove it from the list.


Just a long time customer hoping to help.

Thank you for your help, I am on TelusTV+ how do I clear my entire viewing history? I have tried several times to watch/ fast forward through to the end of the final episode and there are still 4 random episodes that always remain. 🤷‍:female_sign:

On the old Optik box you would hit the On Demand button, go to My Videos and then select Clear Recently Watched. Not sure what the procedure is on the new system.

Thank you for sharing this great idea. We
will look into this with our product team
and let you know if this feasible!

Assume they will give an update one of these years.
Hopefully this is still on the to do list and will be eventually provided. Other streaming apps I have on my tv provide a remove option.
Fast forward on tv+ 21T box or app is not conducive to getting rid of continue watching especially with
“provider will not allow fast forward”
Simplest is to delete & reinstall your profile.
You will lose recordings & have to reprogram
Series recordings and favourite channels.

As An Aside: to the fast forward
TV+ watch HGTV on demand
NO Fast Forward
Global App Watch HGTV
CAN Fast Forward
Can search forum for Telus’s answer to this.

Hi @ExEmp, we have an update coming in July for the TV+21T box where users can press & hold / long press on items in the Resume row and you will be shown a menu where you can remove an item. Please note the release date is tentative for now. I'll update once the rollout is completed.
