can I start watching a show before it has finished recording

If I am recording a "live" show, can I start to watch the show before it has finished recording?  That is, the show starts at 8PM and its a 2 hour show and I've set it to record. Can I start watching the recording at 9PM and will it continue to record so that I can watch the entire show?

Yes but only on your TV, if you try to watch a show currently recording on your phone stream app it will say available in home only, once the video is done recording you can watch it on the app.
