Shaw BlueCurve TV App Launches on Amazon Fire TV [Update]
Shaw recently launched its BlueCurve TV app on Amazon Fire TV devices, as spotted by iPhone in Canada reader Steve.
The addition of BlueCurve TV on Amazon Fire TV devices means you can now stream all the features of the BlueCurve mobile app, on your Fire TV devices.
Shaw says you will need a TV subscription and an Amazon Fire TV streaming device (running Fire OS 5 or newer) to use the BlueCurve TV app. You’ll also need a Shaw ID to log into the app on your Fire TV.
To get started, you’ll need to download the Shaw BlueCurve TV app from the Apps main menu on your Fire TV device. After launching the app, you’ll need to enter a 6-digit access code with instructions on how to activate your account and log in, by heading to activate.shaw.ca on your computer or mobile device.
It appears the BlueCurve TV app was added to Amazon Fire TV in early December. As of writing, there’s no sign of the BlueCurve TV app for Apple TV yet (still only iPhone and iPad), but we’ve reached out to Shaw and will update this story accordingly.
The Shaw BlueCurve TV app allows customers to stream content on the web and access live TV channels and on-demand content, including access to live sports such as Sportsnet and TSN.
Previously known as FreeRange TV, the app rebranded to BlueCurve TV in the fall of 2019, after the company moved its IPTV offering over to Comcast’s X1 cloud platform.
Update Dec. 20, 2021: A Shaw spokesperson confirmed to iPhone in Canada the BlueCurve TV app launched on Amazon Fire TV in “early December”. In addition, regarding the Shaw TV app on Apple TV, the spokesperson said they had no additional information at this time to share.
