NETFLIX is on my Optik TV guide. But won't work when I try to activate it. Does anyone know the launch date of this? HOW EXCITING..and ABOUT TIME!

@v9I believe @trvcm was suggesting that Netflix is now available on the telus optik box, not asking how to get Netflix on their TV.


I heard rumours that this was coming. I'd be curious to see what sort of implementation they used.

As you can read out it said 2nd sentence. "But wont work when I try to activate it" He has tried to make it work, but it hasn't been successful. That's why the infamous <v9> provided him/her with 2-Solutions.

 

Nobody knows if Netflix is available on Telus-SAY so. Weird most of the high profile advisers-Don't answer the question to the OP-But point fingers to other repliers workarounds. Hope they review their performance to-Have a friendly forum. Let's wait for "trcvm-Decide" if these solutions are right or not. Bye <v9>

Not sure how slick it will be compared to a roku. I imagine it will be slow and painful, will really be a blunder if can't autoplay next episodes. The 430 and 330 will chug with menu selections like stingray music. Which brings up why are they still listed as galaxie on the guide and website material was rebranded a while ago.

That's a good point. I do like Netflix my Roku. I'd hope Netflix would work fine on the 430/330. The big thing I'd be interested to learn is if Netflix on STB would use bandwidth like it does on the Roku/iPhone/PC etc.

Where? How?


I see Crave in the Guide and in the Apps, but no Netflix.

Roll out will be in phases, like all other roll outs. Look for it on channel 422 and the Apps menu.

@trvcm I'd call it in - if it's in your guide, you should have access.

If you don't have it by March then worry. It's a slow roll out all of February

@trvcm call in.  If it hasn't been rolled out to you you wouldn't see the app at all.

So far it looks like only Calgary, Edmonton, and Quebec.


Not sure why Telus is doing the slow tease here.

I'm not in any of them,I'm in between Edmonton and Calgary,but there's a few flaws like it doesn't automatically go to the next show and it seem like the sound is lower but I haven't checked all my receiver as for picture quality  seems to me as good as my roku3 but haven't compared them yet,but I think it's ultra HD... Maybe I got it because I have the highest plan telus offers for tv and internet 100mbps...not sure but telus has always gave me updates very quickly.. Thank you TELUS!!!!!My two friends in Edmonton haven't got it yet and my other friend in Calgary still hasn't got it yet to..

I have to say I am watching Spartacus right now and its great quality, loads really quick and it doesn't take  a long time to get to the best quality picture like it does on my daughters blueray player but one thing is it doesn't go to the next show so my 4year old will have to keep her blueray player because it automatically goes to the next show.Maybe that's something telus can change, for me it doesn't matter but she can't use the remote yet..

Product idea!


A brightly-coloured programmable kids remote with just one big button. Plays a happy tune when you press it. You program it to get the TV turned on and connected to the kids favourite channel, or to get Netflix to play the next episode when it stops. πŸ™‚
