Great App-- does what it says it will well .

Smooth problem free app with excellent interface. Does what it is intended to do well but some people are expecting more services from it. Its a free add on to Shaw services and I can understand if they are limited to the extent they cannot stream every channel or have every tv feature included.

No good

Worked for a bit. Now there is only one news channel for the Toronto area (I live in BC). Can't use any other feature.
