Last fall Shaw debuted its Global Go iOS app to allow existing TV subscribers to stream live TV, all the time. At the time, access to the app was only available to those on Shaw, Shaw Direct, Cogeco, Telus, Eastlink plus (Rogers was added recently) subscribers on the Canadian Cable Systems Alliance.
Today, Shaw has announced it has now added Bell Fibe TV and Bell Satellite TV customers to the list of those with access to Global Go. Shaw says there are now over 9 million households using Global Go, which is available to 94 per cent of the Canadian Anglophone market.
“Global Go provides accessibility and flexibility for our viewers and we are thrilled that Bell TV customers can now experience the full capabilities of the app and the enhanced offering it brings to their existing television experience,” said Paul Robertson, Executive Vice President, Shaw Communications and President of Shaw Media. “We are proud of the platform’s easy-to-use interface and high-quality video player, bringing viewers anytime, anywhere access and ensuring they don’t miss a thing.”
Global’s on-demand content is also accessible on Bell Fibe TV, Bell TV Online and through the Bell TV App.
If you missed it, yesterday Shaw launched their Go Gateway iOS app to allow users to manage their PVRs from their iPhone and iPad.
