According to MacRumors, Florida company CustomPlay, which makes companion apps for movies, has filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Apple over the “What did he say?” feature in Apple TV’s tvOS software. This feature rewinds a movie or TV show slightly if you miss a bit or didn’t catch some dialogue. All you have to do is ask Siri “What did he say?” At issue is a patent submitted in 1998 and granted in 2002.
Apple and CustomPlay have yet to respond to a request for comment.
Earlier this week Apple faced another patent blow when a US judgefor infringing a patent owned by the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
