I'm still not sure I understand it!

I mentally equate "over and over" with "more than once", ie: no-rewind.
Or is it a more subtle difference, like "you can watch it at a later
time, and rewind parts of it if you need to, but not rewind the entire
thing and watch it twice"?

Seems very nebulous to me. Anyone care to clarify?
