I have 3 tv's and they all have roku's do i now have to get three piktv boxes as well? blech.
No. You can only provision one PikTV per account. The service is meant for cord cutters who want to watch limited TV. Optik is the product if you want multiple TV connections.
Number of devices on which you can watch Pik TV Watch Pik TV on up to 2 devices
You can watch Pik TV on 2 devices at a time. This includes your Pik TV Media box, Apple TV, mobile devices, tablets and browsers.
Yay. PikTV started to work last evening. It appears to be a giant pvr of whatever is on my selected channels. Which is very good.
-you can't fast forward the commercials
-its slow. very slow to respond to the remote
-not very well organized. Maybe I'm new to the service but I find it hard to navigate.
-the remote, while being snazzy and nice looking, is smooth. I have peripheral neuropathy which means less feeling in my fingers and I can't find the buttons on the remote. I'll ask if there are any more "stone aged" remotes available.
In the end I'll keep this service because its only 10 bucks. But because we have to watch commercials to use it I doubt that it will get used much. I have the 3 local channels filtered through my plex server (hd antenna) and it nicely strips out the commercials so we watch that way most of the time.
I would actually pay 4 times this much for a commercial free service.
Kind of why I like the Crave content on Pik. Usually no commercials. For on demand shows that do have broadcaster inserted commercials, I find there are still fewer commercials than if watching live TV.
100% agree. While I'm also strongly in favour of getting even the current PikTV app released for Android TV as a whole, Roku boxes are actually the most popular streaming set top boxes on the market, ahead of the combined Android TV, Apple TV, and FireTV.
Roku makes a lot of sense to be supported.
Problems seems all providers that offer TV in Canada don't support it for some reason. My guess is coding has never been done, perhaps budget constraints, or do not want to take it on and be the first to make a channel for it. Perhaps if one was done it could more easily be implemented. While i agree with the Roku sediment it remains a black sheep in Canada for all providers.
