I finally gave this another go yesterday on Apple TV, and it worked quite well, after some initial log in issues. In order to view most of the content, you have to log in with your cable company credentials, and use a special code as well to "authorize" your device. It's similar to how one logs in for Crave TV. There is some content which can be viewed without a log in, but it's limited.

There were a few short ads at the beginning of the show I watched, then no more ads throughout the remainder of it. I haven't tried viewing longer programming, such as movies, to see whether there are any ads during the movie itself.

Well, I spoke too soon about the limited ads during that first episode that I watched. When I watched another episode of the same show a few days later, it was loaded with ads. Besides the two at the beginning, there were ads roughly every 5-10 minutes, usually 2 at a time, one 15 second ad, and a second, 10 or 15 second ad. Maybe I was just "lucky" the first time.

Also, another thing that I noticed was that the ads have a much lower video quality than the main programming, and don't have any closed captions either.

CTV Streaming question.........

How can I access the CTV streaming service with an Amazon Firestick ? Every time I try it gives me a code(which i enter without problem) and then wants me to enter my cable/sat provider account# and username. I don't have cable and hell will freeze over before I ever do so please tell how I can resolve this?

@north49 I moved your post to this thread. Are you trying to access locked content or free content?

Free content includes throwback, movies and the first 7 days after broadcast for current series. Locked content requires a TV provider account.

the only way is to borrow one of your relatives cable sign in as ctv global and city all want your cable or satellite sign in.the only canadian tv that you can stream live is cbc after you create an account.it seams that canadian private tv channels like ctv, global, and city tv have gone the greedy american way saying pay for cable or satellite than you can stream us live.cbc went the uk way saying set up an account and you can watch us live for free and you wonder why people hate bell,rogers and shaw so much as they own 90% of all the tv channels in canada lol

Then obviously the free stuff. The most strange thing about accessing the locked content is that it doesn't include Cogeco cable as an option(????)

The CTV streaming service is available to all providers, but some providers choose not to participate, notably Cogeco and Videotron. Techsavvy TV is a participant.

I don't have a Fire Stick, but on the web interface and my Android phone, it doesn't ask me for a provider until I select locked content. (Live TV is also locked content.)

According to this post, the Fire Stick does work for unlocked content.
