Frequently asked questions

How many PVR recordings can I watch at the same time using the Ignite TV App?

Out of Home

There can only be two (2) concurrent streams of any combination of regular TV channels, On Demand content and PVR recordings.

In Home

There are no streaming limits when watching on your Ignite TV set top boxes at home, however the concurrent stream limit of two still applies for the mobile and web apps.

Can I watch PVR recordings on the Ignite TV App while moving or swapping hardware?

Yes, you can still access previously recorded programs during or after moving or swapping Ignite TV hardware, when these have been recorded on the cloud, but recordings saved on the XG1 will be lost. Any recordings that are scheduled to record during a move or hardware swap will not record and therefore will not be available after the move or hardware swap is complete.

Can I watch PVR recordings on the Ignite TV App while my account is temporarily suspended (i.e. Seasonal Disconnect)?

While your account is temporarily suspended, you will retain your current recordings but will not be able to access them. Additionally:

  • Any recordings set to record during this period will not be recorded. 
  • Existing recordings that are to be deleted due to reaching the cloud recording expiry time (1 year) will be removed as scheduled.
  • When your account comes out of suspension, you will once again have access to your recordings and any formerly scheduled recordings will resume as intended.

Can I watch recorded content through Chromecast?

Yes you can. Check out How To: Cast content from the Ignite TV App to Chromecast for additional information.
