Any idea if you can get Pik TV without Telus internet? Meaning get it with your own non-Telus internet connection?
At this time it is not available for non Telus internet customers.

This is a very recent price change - that rep just might not be aware. Think of all the products, promos, etc each rep has to try to memorize.

Ask to speak with another rep or a supervisor, and quote the https://www.telus.com/en/bc/tv/pik/ Terms & Conditions which now states:
This is correct! PikTV is still a very new product and reps are not being trained correctly. I will forward that to our call center team to ensure proper training is provided.

PikTV is $10 ongoing right now. It is not expired, but if you are having troubles then message me.

The $20 base rate is incorrect in that screenshot, but the additional $12 is because you added 3 extra premium channels @ $4/each, on top of the 2 bundled in the base rate.
Is there a chart that shows premium channels?? When ordering AMC, CNN, etc it does not indicate that is a premium channel or that there would be an additional cost. Or is that b/c for the 1st month it would be free?

The PikTV includes 5 "pik" channels for free. Each additional channel is $4. The premium channels like sports and hbo are priced accordingly.

I tried. Phone apk would install but get stuck on splash screen, and apk extracted from piktv would not even install.
So, that is why I was wondering if anybody else had any success.
Really? Damn, you're the first person I've heard of actually extracting the apk from the piktv box. No luck eh? That really limits my desire to try this out...

Has anyone tried connecting a better remote/keyboard? I was hoping to use an Rii i8+ but it isn't recognized. And is there a better internet browser than Puffin TV available for Android TV?

Other than these two issues, I am happy with Pik TV. Time to get rid of my other TV subscription.

I also tried extracting from piktv to my mibox and it would not install.

Use the mic button on the remote, while on the home screen to launch google search and say “Launch Chrome.” It doesn’t really work well without a keyboard and mouse though. Otherwise, it’s just puffin.

Is there some reason I can't get the NHL.TV/Gamecentre app on the PikTV box?

The Google Play store on the device seems incredibly limited. A search of "NHL" on my phone returns hundreds (if not thousands) of results, from the official app to crappy fan apps. A search of "NHL" on the PikTV box returns nothing.

I thought since this was running Android it had access to any Android app?

edit: I know I should be able to install Kodi and then use one of the NHL add-ons, I was hoping to switch to being able to use the native app though, getting tired of troubleshooting constant Kodi/add-on issues.
