Ok, that is just confusing, considering Optik is just a Telus brand. Hell I even did a survey a while back and that was one of the choices for the name of their new service.

Now if you are talking about the tech behind it, like the single pvr, watching it in any room then sure they could do it. As it is the tech behind Telus Optik, is Mediaroom, which if I recall is a Microsoft tech.


I do not have their Optik service, but I do have their older original Telus TV. I know my uncle down the road has it and they like it alot.

Optik maybe what Telus calls it, but by no means is it a Telus product.

IPTV has been around for awhile.. Canada is just super slow on the tech side of things.
