Telus optik TV

Switched from shaw to Telus one year ago and I'm loving it the technology is way better I have never had anything go down. The tv internet and phone is like [$price] cheaper. You get way better channel packages. You can record on any boxes in the house. You can hook either 5 or 6 more hd boxes up to link with each other at one time. The picture is clearer then cable and the sound quality is about the same as cable if your going to switch sign a contract because that's how you get one pvr and 2 hd boxes for free. If you need additional hd boxes they are pre owned and cost [$price] each. So I would fully recommend this over cable it's way better and always works

HD PVR LIMITS

Am I the only one who sees the limits of Telus OptiK TV. We like to record some times three shows at a time, Because that is when they are on. Guess what. We are not able to watch a pre recorded movie at the same time. At least not in HD. apparently there is a HD limit by Telus at any given time. They fail to advertise that. I bought into the wonders of fiber optics etc. limitless abilities etc. I was assured by their sales that I would not have less than my current provider.. Well I am about 40% less thank you. I really should have known. Too Good to be true and all that./ On the plus side. I have slightly faster Internet 50 Vs 40 and it appears Telus TV is a little more reliable. But I am only in the second week. I am trying to have faith But it is a glaring misrepresentation on their part.

poor Telus product

Just switched from Shaw to Telus Optik TV a little more than a week. The sound, picture and the speed quality are simply not as good as Shaw. Called Telus, the guy recommended using component cable other than HDMI cable! Telus guy returned to check, side by side Shaw and Telus picture comparison. He could clearly saw the different--Shaw clearly has better picture and sound quality, but he could not improve anything on Telus system. I regret I have signed 3 year contract. My advice is to think it twice before you switch to Telus Optik TV.

Telus pvr

I love Telus TV because you get very nice picture and sound. The guide is a very nice layout and very easy to use. You can hook up to 5 additional HD boxes to the pvr and you can record and watch on any box. 100% pure digital no analog like shaw cable. I love when someone calls on the home phone it shows on the TV screen. Telus has it's channels in categories which makes it easier to find channels. If u go with a 3 year Telus contract you get 1 pvr and 2 HD boxes for free. I also love how Telus has more Canadian time shifting then shaw cable. Once in a while Telus TV pixelates but once u reset the pvr it's fine

Still Loving It

I picked up the Telus PVR on boxing day deciding if I should switch or not. Ended up doing it just after and LOVE it. The menus and usage make Shaw look archaic. The apps for the cell phone are great, you can record and maintain your PVR from anywhere. The actual unit is tiny, easy to navigate and the HD quality is unreal. Some shows that I own on DVD are clearer through Telus HD, they actually look better on my TV and I find myself PVRing and watching things I already own because the quality is better. I can't believe I stayed with Shaw as long as I did. No regrets here.
