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 support.apple.com/en-ca.

|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|
|1440p (2560×1440)||6350 kbps||~2.8 GB per hour|
|4K (3840×2160)||8000-16000 kbps||~3.5 GB to ~7 GB per hour|
Can I use the Apple TV app on my Shaw internet? We have Shaw at our lake property. It is in the same province as our home. I would switch to Telus but Shaw is faster right now at the lake.
@Patthe thanks for the feedback - we're working hard to implement some changes to the app including some of the ones suggested. At the moment, if you use Voice in the Search section of the Pik TV menu on tvOS then it will return Pik TV results. Using Voice anywhere else in the app does currently bring up Apple's results, but we're working to address this.
I am having a problem where I get a black screen with my Apple TV PIK set up after about an hour and a bit Perhaps I need to adjust the sound periodically. I adjusted the go to sleep and did a hard reboot as well as reinstalling PIK . I hope there is a solution. I much prefer using the ATV over the Android box. This problem seems to be only when I use PIK on Apple TV.
