yes you will get access to the crave tv library
I saw this on the Crave.ca subscribe page:I just tried it out with my Shaw Direct account and it works great so far on my Apple TV 3.

Can't believe you did not know Crave had a Standalone Over the Top steaming option. it really depends how your accessing it. When I used to have Bell TV, I had TMN - The Movie Network package with HBO and TMN Encore. So on my receiver, there was the VOD option, TMN and HBO had its own menu icon for VOD, I also think TMN Encore had one too, then Crave had its own VOD menu icon too. I could play, pause, rewind, etc thru my receiver. Then I was also able to download and use TMN Go on my tablet, and as well the Crave TV app on my tablet. I also had the ability to chromecast it to one of my TV sets which was not hooked up to my satellite. So now that they consolidated it, it appears you now only need one app instead of 2 like I was using back in the day. Also I think Bell was the only provider to include Crave TV with your TMN subscription, correct me if i'm wrong tho.I didn't even know Crave had a live streaming option, I thought it was just all on demand.
Not a big deal for me though. I would likely be watching anything live on my regular satellite receiver. I can pause live TV with my DVR, and I'm guessing that isn't possible with Crave live streaming. I just tried one of the live channels on my iPad and there is a pause button, but as soon as you press play again it skips back to live. So not really a pause button :grin
Shaw has had an app called Freerange TV for quite a while that lets you watch select channels live streaming over the internet. No pause button there either, so I've never used the app.
I'm planning to use Crave to watch some back catalog shows that I've been interested in but never watched before (Carnival on HBO, Letterkenny).
That sounds like Starz programming won't be included in the basic Crave service once Encore rebrands to Starz, so you should watch your Starz series before 2019.Former TMN subscribers who had TMN Encore can access this content on the linear channels (which are now Encore 1 and Encore 2), on demand, or on television provider apps. As previously announced, TMN Encore is rebranding as Starz in early 2019. For a limited time, you can enjoy select Starz programming – such as COUNTERPART, VIDA, and SWEETBITTER – as part of a subscription to Crave.
I did know that. What I didn't know is that they have a live streaming option as well. Essentially whatever is playing live on HBO right now, can be streamed live via Crave. As far as I can tell, you cannot pause these in Crave at all.Can't believe you did not know Crave had a Standalone Over the Top steaming option.
Gbamber that is a good point! Please write to Crave and tell them to add premieres. The "Live" page is the only page about real television now and it is a joke!!! Real TV is an afterthought to the on demand stuff!!Besides there being no website schedule for the Crave TV channels, I can't find any highlighted movie and episode premieres. So, where's the scroll-able monthly listings and premier (new) content?
