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 @shaw.ca 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.
