Is there a list of what channels offer On Demand?

I've been scanning some posts and it seems not all channels offer On Demand (though some posts were older).  Is there a way to find out which ones offer On Demand before buying the service?

 

I also read that if a channel does offer On Demand it may not show all episodes? Is that still the case? It's not worth it if you can't watch all shows.

 

Thanks.

Hi @musicfreakcat 

 

A little over half of the available channels on PikTV have On Demand programming available, but it's worth noting that the number of shows available On Demand varies greatly from channel to channel. You can go to telus.com/pikchannels and click on 'See details' and then 'more about' to learn more about a given channel, including whether it has On Demand programming and whether it's available On the Go. Some channels currently have as many as 197 titles (Discovery) and some have as few as 4 titles (Cooking Channel).

 

Unfortunately, the availability of On Demand programming is determined by the content providers and the content owners, and not by TELUS. Sometimes this means that

  • all past episodes and seasons are available (example The Good Doctor on CTV),
  • only the current season is available (example Top Chef on Food Network),
  • only the last 30 days are available (example Saturday Night Live on Global)  

 

The other thing that is worth noting is that if a channel is available on both Pik TV and Optik TV, the availability of On Demand programming is the same between both services.
