maxTV Stream

This looks interesting, and appears to be based on the same hardware/software as Telus's Pik TV.

Today SaskTel announced the launch of maxTV Stream, the next-generation in television and entertainment. This new service combines the best of traditional television with advanced new features and the latest over-the-top (OTT) content from Netflix and YouTube.

Loaded with over 110 channels to choose from and thousands of hours of Video-on-Demand (VOD) content, maxTV Stream raises the bar for television and entertainment with its innovative features, such as:
  • Restart TV - Restart live TV up to 72 hours in the past so you’ll never miss your show again.
  • maxTV App - Watch live TV and VOD programming on your smartphone or tablet, anywhere in Canada.
  • Built-in applications - Easily access Netflix, YouTube, CraveTV, and more right from your media box.
  • State-of-the-art equipment - Control your TV like never before with Bluetooth and voice command technology.
“With its cutting-edge technology and impressive set of features, maxTV Stream will completely transform television and entertainment in Saskatchewan,” said Doug Burnett, Acting President and CEO of SaskTel. “Plus, by leveraging our expansive broadband network, we’ll be able to deliver maxTV Stream to hundreds of communities, making it more widely available than any other wireline television service in Saskatchewan.”

Launching today in 11 rural communities and the infiNET served neighbourhoods of Saskatchewan’s major urban centres, SaskTel plans to expand maxTV Stream to more than 350 communities by 2020. See the Press Release for the full list of maxTV Stream served communities.

maxTV Stream comes pre-loaded with 55 channels, VOD, and all the features listed above, starting at $19.95/month when bundled with SaskTel Internet service.


Sasktel announced in March, 2017 that they would use the Ericsson MediaFirst platform to deliver this service in 2018. Telus also uses MediaFirst for Pik TV.
