Well I know watching stuff through the Pik App does not count towards the data usage, but how about watching youtube, Netflix or any other apps that is install. Does data use through other app count towards data usage?
Solved! Go to Solution.
It looks that one can view live TV on Pik app on iPad/tablet also. Would that count towards data usage if I am in the home?
According to this article, yes, you consume your data allotment if not using the Pik TV device.
The name "Pik TV" and "app" can be confusing depending on the device you are using it on..... here's how I think it works...
The following WILL count to your home data consumption
The following will NOT count to your data consumption
@Cwest PikTV data is not counted on your overall home internet usage, streamed from the device. (Any other apps consume data. Netflix, YouTube etc).
If you use the app on your mobile device you would use data on your cap. Are you sure it's not for your mobility account?
Talked to Telus (Tech Support, and Customer Service) Looks to be Youtube on the Pik TV that has been eating up all my data. Didn't really expect all youtube to be 1080 and not able to lower the rate.
So, no more youtube on the Pik TV Box.
I expect it is separated by IP address or similar, just like Optik TV data is separated from the rest of the data stream. It is pretty easy to determine which App on a device is consuming data.
