Pik TV is meant to be used on one 'big TV' only. The support docs state that if you want multiple viewing locations in the home, Optik is the appropriate choice.
that's disappointing. What I would really like is for Telus TV to be available as an app on my Apple TV. I really don't care for the interface on the optik tv and I dislike having to plug in yet another box into my TV. Telus: please consider giving your customers what they really want.
And for that reason I will not use it.
My current setup has everything, including my FREE OTA TV running through my Apple TV. If Telus wants to earn my business for television they need to relinquish some of their desire for total control and allow some of these services a la carte. I'd happily pay $10 for the 23+5 channels if I could work it into my existing setup. Making me pay $100 for a second box, requiring input switches to access the content - when my existing Apple TV is more than capable - that's a business model for 20 years ago... Not 2018.
Time to step up your game Telus.
Already have my preferred media box with a Shield TV. The whole point is not having to switch between different devices to watch your media. I understand you market it for a single big tv, but would be great to have the option to choose which device instead of the required Pik box.
I cancelled my Pik TV last year for a combination of reasons, including the desire to rationalize all my internet TV through Apple TV Apps. (Yes, I know what the Telus FAQ says about Pik vs Optik)
Telus could get a very easy $10 per month, maybe more (HBO add-on) out of me and many users, just by just letting us use the Pik TV App on an Apple TV.
