Sign up to RiverTV now and you can benefit from the special low rate of $16.99/month
Anyone buying this? IMHO seems like a trash deal.

I just signed up to see what it is about. Pretty cold deal IMO. I'll stick with my epicstream

I did enjoy the beta period on my Fire TV and Shield TV but unfortunately it's just too pricey compared to the competition. I'll be trying out the 30 day trial of Slack TV on Prime next, that one seems a bit more reasonable at $12.99 after the trial period.

So, did any testers actually subscribed to this service?

No. I wanna see what the full package looks like before I consider signing up.

We tried it. Cancelled, it’s not very good. Clunky and limited in channels. Pvr didn’t work.

I did. Will try for at least a month. Wife and I have enjoyed some of the live shows, and we seem to be gravitating towards Adult Swim.

I did not sign up as it's summer and I'm spending a lot of time outside, but I will likely sign up in the fall when I tend to spend a lot more time watching tv. Hopefully it'll still be around then.

We will be adding between one to five more channels between now and mid-summer, which we will be able to offer still keeping the price below $20, which is by far the best price-per-channel offer in Canada. Adding more would push up the price, and one thing we know is that in the internet content world, people are very focused on prices below $20. Doesn't mean a package can't be more, in the US similar services like Sling can start at $30, but they can offer many more channels because US channel costs are far below Canadian. We will definitely have alot of add ons, we will be adding that capability in the next two weeks, and they will not only be at great prices, but they will also i many cases be unique services not available from any other BDU. So stay tuned.
Two weeks have passed and no sign of add-on content. Any updates on a la carte.

Hi sorry you are right, we are still finishing the back end to process payments for them. It is a bit complicated because we also have in app store sales so the payment process is different from VMedia. We have however started to rough in the description, which is now on the website (eg. Hollywood Suite), but don't expect a whole lot of new channels for awhile, those deals still have to be made.
