Cloud PVR

BlueSky TV and FreeRange TV just got better

Cloud PVR is an enhancement to the BlueSky TV PVR. You can watch, delete and change your existing recording settings remotely via the FreeRange TV mobile app or website.

Download your recordings and watch on-the-go

In addition, your BlueSky TV PVR recordings can be "checked-out" and downloaded to mobile devices for offline viewing, so you can watch your favourite shows on-the-go. Visit FreeRange TV - Download to go to learn more.

Upgrade notifications

Shaw is automatically updating eligible customers' BlueSky TV with Cloud PVR at no extra charge. Existing BlueSky TV customers will automatically start to receive this update. Customers who have recently subscribed to BlueSky TV may receive a prompt to accept the terms and services.

Once you've received the update, when you open FreeRange TV for the first time you will be asked to agree to the Terms of Activation. It is necessary to agree to the terms to start using FreeRange TV with Cloud PVR features.

Note: Accepting the prompt is required due to Cloud PVR features being added to FreeRange TV, however, the terms of use have not changed. If you'd like to review our terms of use, click here.
