The app allows live TV viewing of 98 channels over home Wi-Fi, plus 33 others that support Wi-Fi and mobile networks. Optik on the Go first launched back in early 2012 for viewing on demand content only.

The update comes on the heels of yesterday’s officially announcement of Shaw FreeRange TV for iOS, which allows Shaw customers to view live TV and download kids’ shows for offline viewing.

Since the launch of TELUS Optik TV five years ago out west, the latter has eaten away Shaw’s television marketshare, which currently stands at 2.6 million customers.

TELUS has 980,000 video customers and at the most recent 12 months ending on September 30, it picked up 92,000 customers, whereas Shaw lost 103,000 cable and 38,000 satellite customers in the year ended on August 31, reports The Globe and Mail.

    Great update Gary. I re-downloaded it. Works great!

  • Yeah, the live TV is very good! I can’t remember when they added live TV because I never used the app.
