Fast Forward and Rewind function in Netflix on Apple Tv

tvOS and Apple TV Apps

Hi, I was wondering if anyone knows how I can access the rewind and fast forward functions in Netflix on an Apple TV. Like the ones in the iOS app where I can fast forward or rewind 10 seconds, and the track position slider.
Any help would be great,

Hi there!
Unfortunately, it's not that easy to rewind and fastforward with Netflix. I have found it sometimes works to hold down the select button and drag your finger left or right. Let it wait for a couple seconds, and press the play/pause button. This usually rewinds it about ten seconds or so, though it's not consistent. I have struggled with the same thing for awhile now. I hope this helps somewhat anyway.

Hi, to fast forward on Netflix flick one finger right on the trackpad area of the Siri remote. Flick left to rewind. then press play.

I don't know how you call the buttons on the remote but......
From the track-pad, the button on the left, the one before the Siri button brings up the controls to fast forward, play and such. Then you flick your finger right to fast-forward, and left to rewind.
The more you flick, the faster it goes. Voice Over tells you how fast its going. You can flick back to slow down the rewinding or fast forwarding, until it says play. That's when you stop moving your finger on the track-pad and wait a few seconds for it to catch up and start playing. If it doesn't play, then you can press the play button.

Today I was playing, pressing and holding the microphone/Siri button and saying "Skip forward 3 minutes"; "Skip back 23 seconds"; "Go to the beginning", etc., and to my surprise and amazement it worked!
