You mean the PikTV service doesn't. YouTube and Spotify works fine with Google Home.

No, YouTube didn't work for me, what's the trick?

What is the resolution 720p?

Just ordered current standalone Internet sub...just the basic channels plus a few extra ones is not too shabby for ten bucks a month also streaming doesn’t count towards monthly data usage.

Has anyone opted to subscribe to the HBO add-on? I'm wondering if the on demand content is solely through the TMN GO mobile app or actually available within the PikTV app?

Go to settings, display, cast on your phone. Does PikTV show up on there? I don't recall having to do anything, it just worked. I can ask "Hey Google, play the latest Star Wars trailer on TV" and it will play on YouTube .

My understanding you need to have Telus Internet service in order to get Pix TV.

Not sure if this is allowed here- if not, delete it
Don’t waste your time with this. Get a fire stick or any other android box. Of if you have an android phone and chrome cast. Install terrarium tv for tv shows and movies. Livenettv for live channels. Enjoy!

Its basically IPTV through an app. Telus states it will only work through their internet service.

Android TV is a good OS if you're primarily an Android user (Google Play etc) and prefer a leanback/remote type of experience over casting. I can't speak to the quality of PikTV but less-than-legal BS is not a legit substitute for a legal paid service. At least Telus is trying something new.

Not entirely correct. PikTV is a stand alone service that you can get IF you have Internet 25 or more. Internet 25 is a pre-requisite, meaning you would need to sign up for 25 if you don't already have (usually getting $45/month for six months, then $76 thereafter), or if you already have it, you can add PikTv.

The "from $65/month" you see is stemming from the fact on the website it still shows PikTV as $20/month and it assumes you are also paying the promo price of $45/month for Internet 25 ($45+$20), hence the word "from".

Knowing that PikTV is actually $10/month, you would add that cost to whatever price you can get your Internet and speed for (as in if you're currently paying $76/month for Internet 25, your total cost per month with PikTv would be $76+$10 = $86/month)
