Continue viewing videos from Home screen
There are many instances when you have to discontinue watching videos for some reasons. So the next time, you would like to continue watching videos from where you left (this can save a lot of your time). With 3D Touch feature, you can watch the remaining video directly from the Home screen of your iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus.
Press and hold Video app on Home screen of your device. A menu will pop up there, and it will show you four most recently watched videos. The list will also include videos you haven’t finished watching, videos you have watched completely, downloaded from iTunes Store and videos you never started watching.
iOS offers you the facility to synchronize viewing history across all devices; this enables you to start looking at a movie on other devices like Apple TV. The menu which is seen upon hard pressing the Video app also shows time remaining for each video. For example, you are watching a video of one and half hours, and you stop watching it after one hour. So when you press and hold the Video app next time, the list will show 30 minutes remaining on that video.
Get a Preview of Movies
3D Touch also plays a significant role in watching Movies you have downloaded to the device. All you need is to tap the Movies tab from the bottom. To get a preview of a movie, gently press in the movie list. If you want to open the file in the full-screen mode, press a little harder.

You can also take a preview of your personal video clips with the help of 3D Touch feature; however, you will have to synchronize those clips from iTunes on your computer.
Preview of TV Shows

Either you can watch them from the cloud or the TV Shows button at the bottom of the screen of iTunes Store. Gently tap on the entire series or individual episodes to get a preview. Press a little harder to watch the item in full screen.
