You can access EPICO via the EPICO app (on the App Store and Google Play store) on your mobile devices or via the EPICO website.

Some content may be unavailable outside of your home depending on content rights determined by the broadcaster. See below for out-of-home restrictions depending on your location and connection.

  • Outside of your home but within Canada (including mobile data or connected to another modem)
    • Some channels may not be available.
    • This may also affect recordings from the restricted channel.
    • Channel-specific restrictions are determined by the broadcaster.
    • To see what channels you can view, open the Guide on your mobile device and apply the “Playable On This Device” filter. For more info on applying filters, see here.
    • Some purchased content may only be available on your EPICO PVR and not be playable on mobile devices or in a web browser.
  • Outside of Canada
    • Live TV and cloud DVR recordings will not be available outside of Canada.
    • Recordings you have downloaded to your mobile device while in Canada will still be playable.

Will it affect my monthly data usage?

  • If you’re connected to your Wi-Fi home network, using the EPICO apps to stream live TV, recordings, catchup TV or on demand content, will not affect your monthly Internet usage.
  • If you’re connected to your cellular network, and not connected to any Wi-Fi network, any streaming may count towards your phone plan's data usage.

Good to know: Your PVR or receiver will only work when connected to your home network.
