when can we expect shaw apps for chromebooks ( global, movie central, shawgo wifi ). cant seem to find them on the chrome apps store. am i doing somthing wrong?
At the moment yac898 we don't offer any apps for Chrome OS, although that might be something we're already looking into. You can already access all Global content though at globaltv.com, Movie Central content at vod.shaw.ca and our wifi locations at www.shaw.ca/wifi/locations all from Chrome.
ok. thx matt. not sure if you are saying i can use my chromebook with shawgo wifi, or if all i can do is find wifi hotspots. plz clarify. thx again.
one other question for ya. does this count against our bandwith cap?. sorry if this answer is buried in the faqs already. thx again
No worries, here to help.
If you use the Go Wifi site to find a location, it can use your IP address to find out roughly where you are and show you the hotspots in your area, but it's not quite like the Android app in that it can't pinpoint where you are.
When you Global or vod.shaw.ca to watch content, you're using your connection so it does count towards your bandwidth. That said, the streams in place are efficient to give you the best possible quality with the least amount of bandwidth used.
