Re: No Ignite TV app for Apple TV

There are no ignite TV apps for any 3rd party tv platform (apple TV, Android tv, roku, etc)

If you want to watch on your TV, you need to pay for a Rogers box.

Short answer, might be Comcast.

This is a technology developed for/by Comcast in the US.. If they have not added it, it wont really be available for rogers to use it up here.

Doing some quick searches.. it looks like they MIGHT have just added technology for this recently for Comcast.. so something we might see up here?

Comcast allows customers to access their Xfinity TV service with a Roku app as well as their Smart TVs.  There is already another thread in the Rogers forums asking about their availability on Ignite TV.

 

The status of plans for an Xfinity Stream launch on Apple TV seems to be a bit murky at the moment.  There are reports of contractual and tvOS platform integration issues that need to be resolved but I don't know how credible these reports actually are.  When Comcast does offer their app on additional partner devices, we'll see it here.

I hope it comes soon!! It’s on the iPhone and iPad so why not Apple TV?

Because having it on iPad and iPhone doesn't eat into box rental revenue....

Agreed!! I’m with Bell for the reason that I can get their Bell Fibe ALT option and not have a single set top box to pay rent on. Rogers needs this option. I would go back if they had Ignite skinny option on Apple TV and Firestick. Im sure many others would as well.
