I doubt that this is an issue over a "luxury" item. Perhaps more an issue of licencing. You're able to watch the ignite tv recordings at home, and possible in the same city or province, when you go out of province or out of country you might run into licencing issues. I can see that happening if you're out of country.
I doubt that you'll get any productive response here in the forum. You're best bet is probably with an ignite concierge. Maybe he or she can point you to the fine print covering "on the road" usage.
Are you downloading the recording to you device? I have downloaded a recorded show and my wife watched on the plane.
I just downloaded a show, turned off my wifi on thus tablet and was able to watch the show.
You download the recording.
Here are the instructions for downloading a recording to your device using the Ignite App for viewing while away:
You cannot utilize the Ignite App outside Canada, despite what the following FAQ says:
@CommunityHelps : Please correct the link so that it says "IN CANADA", not "anywhere".
That's correct @Biollw
As long as you download your recordings to your device of choice prior to leaving Canada, you can watch your recordings. Done it myself from Dulles airport, Heathrow, Gatwick, Dublin, Newark, LAX and Melbourne.
You just can't access your content from the cloud while outside of Canada.
Hope this helps clarify 🙂
As mentioned above.. the main reason is LICENSING.
That those specific shows may be licensed to a different company in that country.. so your 'technically' not allowed to view them there.. as your not paying that company to watch them there.
As mentioned, if you download them FIRST, you should be able to view them while there on the device.
Otherwise, the only other real option to access them, would be using a VPN while in those countries.
Using one, which would make you appear like you are in Canada, should allow you to view them.
The issue here is Roger doing false advertising, saying words like “anywhere” tv. When I am in Canada I do not need “anywhere” tv. When I am out of Canada is when I need “anywhere” tv.
