Is there an app like Go Gateway to program recordings on the Blue Sky system? I use that feature every day and would be disappointed if it is not available.
Not at this time we do not have an app with the Shaw BlueSky TV. Down the road it may be something we look into.
I'd also like to have this app.
Yeah, me too. I had and used the Gateway app constantly. This is a really big missing feature in today's connected world.
I just switched from Telus to Shaw. I was shocked to find out there is no app to set up PVR recordings remotely. Major disappointment, especially since Shaw did have an app for the TV system prior to BlueSky TV. When is the app coming out?
Hi mattmclartybc ,
An app is in late stages of development, but at this time we do not have an ETA available. Sorry for any inconvenience. Please continue to check back for further updates.
Thanks for the quick update...
My wife and I just switched from the Gateway to Blue Sky. The remote app is a huge missing feature. Another missing feature that the Gateway had that I find rather annoying is that there is no skip or back button. My wife and I have different schedules and as such we rarely watch anything live. Are there any plans to have this incorporated? Even the service technician that installed the system though it was strange that these buttons did not exist and couldn't tell us why it was removed.
Hi mmontagu ,
Page Up / Page Dn can be used as Skip/Replay buttons. See Skip remote control function for more details and options.A mobile app for BlueSky TV is still in development, sorry but we have no further news to share about it at this time.
You can also use the voice command and say "rewind 30 seconds" or whatever time frame you want ("rewind 1 minute").
Looking for a BlueSky app for wifi remote programming ...need this app ...switched from Gateway assuming a minimum new standard that Gateway had ...would not have switched if properly informed ... When is a BlueSky app coming?
Hi dtul. I too am looking forward to this app. We are working with the manufacturer but don't have a firm ETA yet.
Just want to show my disappointment that there is no way to remotely setup a program, web or app. I moved from Telus Optic and had an app for it. Giddyup Shaw.
Any update on the status of the app? As it was in late development stage 6 months ago so hopefully soon!
There is no new word on an app for BlueSky at this time. Once we do have anything new to report we will be sure to get the word out!
This is incredibly disappointing to hear. I just switched to BlueSky from gateway today and was not told when making the switch that the remote app was not an accompanying feature... I hope Shaw is making this a priority to keep up with the demand and competing market.
By the fact that it's been a year and still no app, I wouldn't hold your breath.....
This is brutal that we are STILL waiting for this. Simply ridiculous in 2018 and with the fact the app already exists with Comcast. Just add Shaw logos, boom, done. Lazy, lazy, lazy. Shaw never seems lazy collecting my $200 a month though.
Sept 2017 you said 'late stages of development'.
10 months later? so what's up?
Is it being developed or not? Give us an eta please.
It's a brutal 'downgrade' from Gateway....
We still do not have any new information regarding an app for the BlueSky system. It is a very popular request so I'm sure something is being looked into. As soon as we have any details, we will be sure to let our customers know!
