TMN GO is currently only available in Eastern Canada to customers of Bell Fibe TV, Bell Satellite TV and Cogeco Cable. Rogers is set to launch the service in the coming weeks with more TV providers set to join shortly after.

The app features pick-up-and-play so you can watch from one device and continue from another, families can have up to three simultaneous streams and five registered devices per subscriber household, stream quality adapts to your internet connection and titles can be watched over 3G or Wi-Fi. Users can also control video quality to keep their bandwidth consumption in check.

    Why do we have to have a cable/satellite subscription for this? Don’t they realize they could make far more money buy charging 13$ for the app and make you pay a 13$ subscription fee? They’ll get customers that want ONLY TMN Go channels without the rest of cable garbage. We’re almost there but these companies have got to realize providers are second to content, not the other way around. Robelus is a dinosaur that needs to learn its place.

    Damn, says it doesn’t work with jailbroken iPhones. When I try to stream something I get a pleasant little message saying “video playback is only supported on unmodified versions of ios”

    I agree I also think its a scam. Jailbroken iPads do what apple can only dream their iOS can do and here tmn is supporting their stupidness instead of the consumer. Another corporate company that doesn’t have the back of its customers.
