Watching Optic TV away from home

Just Moved In

I'm trying to figure out if I can watch my Optic TV at a place where I will be housesitting for a couple of months. There is a smart TV there, don't have one myself so not sure how that all works but can I download the Optic TV app to watch on the TV or am I limited to using my phone/tablet? The house already has Shaw internet/TV but hoping to watch my Telus TV. There is no Telus service available in that area if that makes any difference. Appreciate any input. Thanks.

Unfortunately the Optik App won't let you cast to a TV so you'd be limited to your phone or tablet.

It's a long shot but some smart TVs have a web browser. You may be able to go to and view via that. Otherwise you are likely out of luck.
