March 3, 2022 Category: Residential Services

Execulink TV is available on Amazon Fire TV, Android TV, and just recently Apple TV and Google TV with Chromecast!  We know that having flexibility on how you watch TV is important, over 50% of Canadian households have at least one digital streaming device in their home. Adding our app gives you the freedom to access content wherever and however you want it! We thought it would be helpful to answer some frequently asked questions about downloading and using these apps.

What is the benefit of watching Android and Fire TV?

With the new Android TV and Fire TV apps, you have the flexibility to watch content on more devices such as your smart TV, cellphone, or tablet! You will be able to access Execulink TV in the same place as the rest of your favourite content like Netflix, Fire TV, and Disney+.  Your Cloud DVR recordings are stored in the cloud so you can record shows right on the app!

Everything that you currently enjoy with Execulink’s Set Top Box will still be available through the apps such as Restart TV or Catch Up TV.  Overall, you are getting the same AWESOME experience, but you can save on your monthly bill.  You no longer need to pay the Set Top Box rental fee if you decide that having one is not beneficial to your home.

What are the system requirements?

You must have Execulink Internet and Link TV service. The apps are compatible with many devices including
