Pause or rewind live TV

I recently got the X1 box sith DVD.  I did not know that one could pause or rewind live TV.  How is that possible? Does Comcast record everything?  Or does the box only record something I started to watch from the beginning? If I tune in late to something, can I watch from beginning to end?

I cannot start watching a live broadcast and go back to the beginning; I have to record the program and it only picks up when I start the recording.

Thjere are some premium channels that will let you start from the beginning by transferring you to the On Demand copy.  On Demand can be watched at any time.

the pausing of live TV is a feature of X1 set top boxes. they have hard drive to record (up to an hour) for the DVR or for some time for non-DVR X1 equipment using an installed by Comcast memory card.
