This app works okay. You can stream live TV, access your pvr, and set recordings. However, you can't set the streaming quality, which is bad for usage on mobile data. You can't access most SD channels in the app, and it forces you to stream at HD in the highest quality, using 1.7GB/hour. That's a ton of data to use for just an hour for watching TV. I'd be fine streaming in 240p and using ~200MB / hour, if they had an option. It would make the app alot more useful, as you could stream on the go without eating through your data allotment.
Can't see scheduled recordings by day. "Typical improvement" which challenges users who are quite happy with the "old" functionality. Now they have created a new app which forces us to learn a whole new system. Pretty dumb. Since i no longer have a contract with Telus I will be checking out Shaw blue sky. I hear it is pretty good.
The old version worked great on my tablet... now it just keeps giving me an error when i try to open it... the remote app no longer thinks my email is right. So i cant even sign in. Come on telus... we pay you tons of money and you "fixed" something that used to work well... and it no longer works!! My tablet and phone are not that old. So the app should work. Please roll back to the old versions...
Appreciate the ability to also manage PVR recordings but the interface desperately needs to be more user friendly. Series shows are not grouped together if they are not set as series recording. Sometimes info would not load when clicking into a show. Buttons are so chunky making it hard to navigate on a smartphone.
Useless. Just downloaded for my LG G6. App won't even load just sits at a grey screen or I get an error message. Just deleted it 5mins after downloading. What's the point having it take up space and can't evwn load? Come on Telus at least give us something that works
The old one worked fine. This just keeps shutting down. Horrible. Unusable. It turns out it only works with Android 5 or higher. So, Telus developers don't consider customers with older versions worthy. I can tell you how disappointed I am with this.
