Wonderful news. But please make the app available to Sony Android TV 2015 models as well. Sony has provided an update to Android 8 last year. It would be great to be able to watch all my channels in one app.

Friendly Neighbour

Are they going to make it compatible with normal Chromecast?

Long, long overdue!

When will the Pik TV app be available for TCL Android TVs ?
TCL has been selling a lot of Android TVs in Canada for a while, from Best Buy and Amazon.
My Telus Pik TV media box is sluggish with Prime Video, still haven't received the New Android TV Home screen 3.0 yet either.

I recently got Optic TV installed after the Telus promotions people I talked with assured me that I could cast from my iPhone to my chromecasts using the Optic TV app. Everything I now find on the Telus website indicates this is NOT possible. I utilized this extensively with my Shaw TV app and cannot understand why Telus is unable to support this when Shaw has for a long time. Is casting to Chromecast coming soon?

No, you can’t cast Optik from iPhone to Chromecast. You can install the PikTV app on appropriate hardware listed above. Telus has not described a timeline for availability of casting, if ever. Usually the broadcasters determine what is allowed to be cast, and Shaw may be in a different place, as they own so much content, where Telus is only a rebroadcaster of other company’s content.
