Hey Neighbours, some exciting news! We're dedicated to providing you with new and exciting features that make streaming live TV better and easier. Our latest milestone puts Pik TV for the first time on Apple TV, providing an overall enhanced viewing experience without the need for additional hardware.


Here's some info on how to watch Pik TV on your Apple TV.


1) Start watching live TV on your Apple TV

Using your Apple TV 4K or any 4th generation Apple TV device, simply download the Pik TV app and login using your My TELUS credentials.


2) On Demand purchases

Currently, On Demand purchases are unavailable via the Pik app on Apple TV. We're working hard to enable this feature. In the meantime, you can easily make On Demand purchases through your browser or any Android device. In addition, you are still able to watch already purchased assets on your Apple devices.


3) Having issues with your Apple TV?

TELUS does not support hardware issues for Apple TV. For Apple TV related issues, please contact Apple directly or visit

What version of Apple TV with PikTV run on?  Only the current 4k version?  Non-4k 4th gen?  3rd gen?

Hello! Can’t seem to find an answer to this anywhere! But does Pik TV use data when watched on an Apple TV? And what about on a laptop while at home using my TELUS internet

PIK is a IPTV encrypted signal through a private network. Netflix is through the public internet. No , PIK does not use
your data but Netflix does.

The Apple TV does not change the nature of the signal. The-set box decodes the signal.

How much data would it consume if its not connected to your telus home internet?

It depends on the picture quality of the video you are streaming. Telus does not publish the info, but for comparison, Netflix streams at approximately the following rates:

480p (720×480)1750 kbps~792 MB per hour
720p (1280×720)3000 kbps~1.3 GB per hour
1080p (1920×1080)4300-5800 kbps~1.9 GB to ~2.55 GB per hour

How do you control Close Captioning for Pik app installed on an Apple TV.   Easy to  do on a Pik TV remote but I cannot turn off CC on the Pik app running on my Apple TV ?

Swipe down on the remote. Below the title and time bar you will see 3 icons (i) on the right and (cc) and (ad) on the left. Swipe over to (cc) and click

Further if you swipe down again while on live tv you will see the quick access bar. Swipe left right to quickly access other channels.
