Shaw Go Gateway iOS App Launches to Manage your HDPVR from Anywhere [u]


Gatewayapp LP hero

Shaw has released their Shaw Go Gateway iOS app in the App Store, which will allow customers to manage and set recordings for their HDPVR from anywhere.

The Shaw Go Gateway app allows you to record all your favourite shows and manage existing recordings while you’re on the go. With the Shaw Go Gateway app, you won’t miss a thing.

Available for all Shaw Gateway Whole Home HDPVR customers.

The app went live today in the App Store after the company had started an invite-only beta test for the app last December.

To use the app, customers will require their email address or Customer Centre ID to log in. The app offers the following features (there’s also an Android app too):

  • Set Recordings: One time, or a series.
  • Remote Recording: Manage, delete and cancel recordings, as well as modify series options
  • Simplified Remote: Change the channel on your portal and start the playback of a recording, from anywhere
  • Easy Browsing: Access and search the complete Gateway guide.

We tried signing into the app but we’re getting a network error message that says it’s preventing us from signing into the app (we tried both Wi-Fi and cellular). We’ll try again in a bit.

Update: Shaw has let us know about the change to the ‘Simplified Remote’ feature, which we have modified above in the bullet list.

    I’m getting the network error message too!

    Shaw is so far behind. Telus Optik TV had this years ago.

  • Yup. Better late (way late) than never though.

  • Hopefully it will get fixed soon! I can’t wait to delete old PVR recordings from my iPhone as that will be way faster than going through the Gateway interface.

    Yeah and too bad if you have anything other than Shaw’s Whole Home HDPVR system. You have to be home to set up or delete anything on those. Can anyone say convenient?

    Hey guys, Gateway tier 2 from Shaw here. Just wanted to mention that this is incorrect:
    Full Control: Change the channel, play, pause, and rewind your recordings, just like a remote control, from anywhere
    You can change the channel but, play, pause, and rewind are not present currently.

  • greg.g2

    Oops, Play is available. Mistyped 🙂

    Having only an apartment to ones self I don’t think I need the gateway. The other model, the regular HDPVR has (the DCX3510), if you believe the massive threads they shut down in the forums, major problems. My current PVR is going on seven years old at this point but I keep waiting for them to replace the current problematic unit first.

    I don’t like to promote Bell, but they are, and have always been, sooooo far ahead of Shaw, I’m surprised people use Shaw. If they could compete, I would switch. But Shaw’s recent devious promotion of claiming to have the most HD channels is sick and lowered them to the level of a typical BS’ing corporation.

    Sorry – I seem to have deviated from my point… Why introduce something if it isn’t yet competitive (in functionality) with what is already in the market?

  • The information was taken from the Shaw website. So what’s not available?

    Used it last night. Very cool. The funny thing is I was just wishing for this feature last weekend when I remembered while out that I forgot to record the Champions League final. It’s pretty cool. I don’t see pause and rewind features in it though. Just play, Delete and Series recording options. I was really disappointed though when I saw the “recorded TV” panel. My first though was that I could watch said program on my device. Realizing I still had to be in front of my TV was disappointing. Still, pretty handy with the world cup coming up.

    Re: Bell and Telus.

    Here in Manitoba, Bell only has satellite, not cable. Telus offers no TV option in the province.

    We had some issues but they were resolved this morning. Give it a try and let us know the outcome? Thanks for your patience!!

  • Yep, works great now. Thanks!

    The shaw website had a mistake and has been updated accordingly.

    If possible, can you please update that section with the new information

    “Simplified Remote: Change the channel on your portal and start the playback of a recording, from anywhere.”

    Instead of “Full Control: Change the channel, play, pause, and rewind your recordings, just like a remote control, from anywhere

  • Edited, thanks!

  • George

    One thing that is missing in the Shaw Go Gateway app for IOS is the % recorded. Would be nice to know.

  • Keith Scott

    Is there ever going to be an app to allow me to watch live tv and/or something I have recorded on ,y ipad?
