I would love to see shaw add the functionality of the pvr to the My Account Page like what Mts has so people have the ability to record their favorite shows from the web site & not just the Mobile app
Ah yes, the Shaw Go Gateway App! It's certainly one of the more convenient and popular apps that we have available. We only have it in app form at this time but I agree that it would be convenient to have it in other formats as well. I don't have any word on if we'll have the equivalent of MTS's MyPVR site but in today's rapidly evolving field of digital access, I'm sure that something like that will eventually be here.
Telus provides internet access to your Optik TV PVR via a web interface, which allows you to use it from any platform with a web browser, but unfortunately Shaw can only provide what they get from Arris, which is an Android app and an iOS app. I've only tried the Android app, and while it has the required functionality, it's awkward that you can't easily pare the channel list down to your subscribed channels, and it seems to have a lot of communication problems with the gateway and portals. I suspect that Shaw has little influence with Arris, but if they did I wish they would light a fire under them about the poor reliability and lagging functionality of this app.
