Instant Highlights are clips created using AI that let you relive your favorite moments from a live game within just a few seconds of when they happened!
As we are currently testing this new beta feature, Instant Highlights will only be available for select events and on specific devices initially. We hope to expand Instant Highlights to additional events and devices in the future.

How do I view Instant Highlights?
To view Instant Highlights, you’ll need to be recording the game you’re watching.
To start recording a game, launch the FanView Experience, then navigate to the Instant Highlights widget using your device remote or mouse, and select Record. Instant Highlights will be generated from the point where you began recording the game.
From the pop-up menu, choose to record just the game you’re watching, or record all of one (or both) teams’ games.
Pro Tip: If you’re a fan of one of the teams playing, select Record (Team) from the Recording Options pop-up menu, so you’ll have access to Instant Highlights for future games. Find out more about recording your favorite teams with this article.
To start watching, once Instant Highlights are available from the game you’re watching, select the widget from the FanView Experience to enter Highlights mode.
Available clips will load on the right side of your screen. The latest available highlight will load and automatically begin playing.
You can scroll the list of available highlights and select any clip to play. Available highlights will play continuously if no action is taken.
Can I save Instant Highlights to watch later?
At this time, Instant Highlights cannot be saved to watch later. Once the game you are viewing ends, highlights will no longer be available.
What devices are Instant Highlights available on?
Initially, Instant Highlights will only be available through the FanView Experience on Amazon Fire TV and Android TV connected devices.
We hope to expand this feature to additional devices at a future date.
What game events are added to Instant Highlights?
Initially, Instant Highlight clips will only be available for NBA Playoff games. Game events added to the highlight list include:
- Hook shots
- Possibly others
Every generated highlight will include the player’s name, quarter, and the game clock at the time of the event.
Can I rewind, pause, or fast-forward Instant Highlights?
No. At this time, you will be unable to use player controls with a highlight video that is playing.
How do I exit Instant Highlights?
Instant Highlights will automatically close after playing the last available clip in the list.
You can exit Instant Highlights at any time by pressing the Back button on your device remote.
