Techsavvy TV

Mods sorry if this has been posted before, but I couldn't find it.

Techsavvy has launched a limited TV service with partner Hastings Cable on February 1, 2019. I've checked their website, but cannot find pricing information. Not that it matters for me right now as the service isn't being offered in Alberta as of yet.

I am curious if anyone has take the plunge for the TV service. My son has internet and phone (in Alberta) and has said it has been a rock solid service.

Thanks.

TekSavvy Tv

Quote:
TekSavvy TV is a new IPTV service that is now available to current TekSavvy customers in Chatham-Kent and Ottawa regions.
I like the fact that they use standard, widely available streaming devices instead of proprietary boxes. Other than that there is nothing special about the service. Programming packages are fairly large and well thought out for personal interests. There is no pick and pay option. Got to wonder why it is not being rolled out to other areas.

I like it. When they offer it to Toronto, I will see if I can replace Rogers since the packages in Techsavvy is more flexible than Rogers, and cheaper too.

Looks good.

Would like to know when it becomes available in Middlesex and Elgin. Even though we have plenty of OTA channels, wouldn't mind a 6 month trial to see what it's like.

Is there an email notification service for availability in other areas?

An offshoot is this might cause the oligopolies to rethink their pricing/package plans. Ya like that's gonna happen

Just reviewed the pricing against my current Rogers TV, Internet, Homephone. While Techsavvy TV packages are cheaper, but there is no PVR function if I use iPhone/iPad, AppleTV, etc. Internet of 150/15 unlimited is $23 more than Rogers. Do they offer bundle pricing with TV and internet?

Teksavvy TV now appears to be available more widely. Check the availability link. It looks like a lot of channels are "coming soon."

I looked at the channel line up. CTV Toronto is no where to be found. Sports channel is either $8 or $20, but no where in between.

You are living in the wrong country if you expect any savings from the competition.

I think that IPTV that TekSavvy offers is the best option for people who need only handful of their favourite channels.
This is the best price in my opinion. I am just not sure how reliable is their service as most of Canadian third party IPTV services are all garbage when it comes to providing good quality, reliable service.

The big issues I have with Teksavvy TV are lack of PVR and the limited number of channels. A pick and pay option would be nice as well. Those are deal breakers for me.
