[Telus] Pik TV media box discounted [BC/AB]

Deal Link:
Price:
$25
Savings:
75%
Expiry:
June 30, 2017
Looks like the Pik media box is on sale for $25 instead of $100
The first month of service is free as well. After that it's $20/month base

Not a bad deal since you can try it out for a month and just cancel if you don't like it. I believe you can just return the hardware for your $25 back as well (or keep it for a cheap Android box)
Pik TV & Internet does not require a term contract. Service agreement required for duration of subscription. New Pik TV & Internet customers will receive a $150 bill credit with the purchase of the $25 Pik TV media box (reg. $100) and set up of new Pik TV & Internet subscription. Regular monthly price of $75 per month applies thereafter. Offer ends June 30, 2017. Existing TELUS Internet customers adding Pik TV will receive a $95 discount with the purchase of the $25 Pik TV media box (reg. $100) and set up of new Pik TV Subscription. Regular monthly price of $20 per month applies thereafter. Offers ends June 30, 2017. Offer available once per household. Not available to existing Optik TV or Satellite TV customers.

Crap. I signed up for this a month ago and paid $100 for the box. I did however, get a $25 credit as a 'Thanks' from Telus.

Anyone has any experience with Telus Pik

It seems that not too many are aware of it because Telus is not promoting it as aggressively as other offers. When I called a few weeks ago to cancel my TelusTV, they haven't even mentioned it. I wish they would just provide an app instead of yet-another-Android box to add to my collection of media players.

Here's a thread I found on it: http://www.digitalhome.ca/forum/187-tel ... ik-tv.html
One user mentioned it was pretty awful but for $5 for the first month I've got not much to lose

They also have the Pik TV app you can get on your other Android devices, but it'll count towards your bandwith
See https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... .tvx.proda
The service is not being marketed to run on any hardware BUT the Pik TV official box. I don't believe the Pik TV app is supported on other boxes.

Included with your TELUS Pik TV subscription, the Pik TV app5 lets you watch select shows on your tablet or smartphone. Access to some channels requires TELUS Internet.
It actually says they support taking it to go on your phone or tablet. I imagine it would work on anywhere you can install it really

The person in that link doesn't seem to understand the service or is lying. He says you can't turn off subtitles on the app. Yes you can.
I use Pik TV. If anyone has questions let me know

So Pik just lets you stream live TV to all your devices?

It looks like its an Android TV box with Pik TV app installed. I tried to order it, but current TELUS Optik customers aren't eligible.

It's basically an android box. You can watch live TV from it. It's UI is kind of like Netflix. It's a lot less complicated than a real android box but it gives a lot less content as well. You still encounter commercials like real TV. It's for people who want a small amount of TV to watch.
To answer the guy before you, there's an app you can install on your device so you can access the PikTV content on the go.
To the last guy, existing customers ARE eligible

This is an Android TV box running the Leanback Launcher environment, similar to the Nvidia Shield, MiBox or Nexus Player. I don't know how well it runs in comparison to them but yes, you can install certain apps from the Google Play store, including Kodi. Basically any apk could be sideloaded but not all apps can run properly.
