When you can’t reset the partially watched episode on Apple TV+ and jump to another series a message related to the former will continue to appear. It will notify you that a particular episode of the series you just finished watching was not completely watched. Plus, the progress bar indicating the approximate percentage of completion may move slowly or seem like it isn’t moving at all. Here’s what you’ll need to do to fix it!
How do I reset the partially watched episode on Apple TV+
The chances of experiencing issues with any device that runs software cannot be dismissed and Apple is no different. For example, if you’ve watched every episode of a season on Apple TV + you may still find one episode always showing as partially watched. Find what you should do to reset the partially watched episode on Apple TV+.
- For Apple TV 4K, launch the TV app,
- Check if the show is listed in Up Next.
- If not, go to the Details page.
- Highlight the episode.
- Click-and-hold to bring up the menu.
- Select the Mark Episode as Watched option.
This workaround should help you get rid of the problem completely. Note – restarting your Apple TV 4K will not help!
How do I start a movie from the beginning on Apple TV?
Turn On your Apple TV 4K device and go to the TV app. Here, see if the episode (rather than the show) is listed in the Up Next category.
If not, go to the show’s Details page to highlight the episode that you want to edit.
With the episode highlighted, click-and-hold your remote to bring up the menu for that selection.
Now, simply select the ‘Mark Episode as Watched’ option. Most users are not aware of this trick. When you use click and hold action, you trigger context-specific actions, such as entering the Edit mode that allows you to make the desired changes.
How do you keep apps and Home screens the same across multiple Apple TV devices?
Just open Settings on Apple TV.
Go to Users and Accounts > [User account name] and turn on ‘One Home Screen‘.
When you have more than one Apple TV associated with the same Apple ID, you can keep the appearance and apps the same for each device. This arrangement is not only convenient but also makes the process of switching between 2 different Apple TVs seamless.
Hope that makes sense!
