Just got an email from Shaw that states you can now download shows to your device and watch them offline. I have not tried this yet, so I don't know the details, but it is probably something similar to the Netflix download feature. May also be only limited to summer.

A Shaw employee wrote this response on their community forum.
We can confirm that the most up to date info regarding download-to-go is that YTV, Nickelodeon, Treehouse & Hollywood Suite are the only ones available.
They had the kids' downloads since the beginning so they're not just for the summer.

@bigoranget you're probably thinking of the HBO GO download feature that was just announced. Unfortunately, Shaw isn't participating in the download feature.

All video output (e.g., HDMI) is blocked for Android. Why? From my laptop, using Chrome, I can feed video and audio from FreeRange with no problems, but when I hook up my Android device the notice tells me it cannot be done. Why the restrictions with Android and not (as the Shaw FreeRange site states) " IE 10+, Chrome, Safari 5.1+, Microsoft Edge, Firefox ".. Is there any way around this restriction?

I have no problem casting from my Android to various devices - such as Roku ... I've never tried a physical connection.

It seems to be the physical connection that causes the problems and according to their web page is impossible. But I have found that many "digital minds" on this Forum have often figured out "legal" ways around the difficulties.

Is there any info or news about Shaw allowing the access of Centre Ice on Free Range TV in the future? I really want to switch from Bell to Shaw Direct but that is biggest reason I wont. I work on the road lots away from home. With the Bell App I can access the Centre Ice Channels I pay for. Hopefully they change it in the future before next season.

Depends on what's not working - are you able to login? If so, do some functions work while others don't? Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling?

Any update yet on Shaw allowing NHL Centre Ice on Free Range TV or the new Blue Curve TV APP? THIS IS THE ONLY REASON I HAVE NOT SWITCHED TO SHAW FROM BELL. Come on Shaw, make that change.

FreeRange or Blue Curve...doesn’t work

My FreeRange app shutdown maybe six to eight months ago. At first it had lost all channels but when I deleted and reinstalled, the app wouldn’t even connect to the WiFi. ”Oops, we didn’t connect on the first try.”
I escalated.through emails to the app people and they told me it was an issue with my provider, Bell. They said my modem is an older model and some port must be blocked. Tell them you need a newer modem was the call.
Funny thing...I watch other apps with no issues. I can login FreeRange on a Windows 10 PC. Now Blue Curve. Does exactly same, so Shaw, you’re out of the picture on my tablet. I use other apps that work.

Yes frustrating there are no French stations.

Does anyone know if Blue Curve will work on iPad? Whenever I try it tells me to enable Flash player but iPad does not work with Flash.

I know someone on Shaw Cable that was using FreeRange on an iPad, which is basically an earlier version of the sane app. I don't know if they still use it or if they upgraded.
