TELUS has launched Multi-View on Optik TV, allowing customers to keep up with all the action and watch up to four channels at once on the same screen. One channel is displayed in the main window with audio, at the same time as three other programs are displayed in smaller windows. The app is easy to use, allows an Optik Customer to switch between shows quickly, and allows you to choose new shows to add to personal themed lists of favourite programming such as Sports, Kids, News, or Movies.
“Multi-View on Optik is the perfect addition for anyone who wants to see what’s happening on your favourite channels without having to switch back and forth,” said David Fuller, Chief Marketing Officer at TELUS. “Multi-View will definitely be put to good use by our customers, especially the TV fans who can’t get enough of great sports coverage this summer. They can follow four events or games simultaneously then quickly jump to the full screen when the action picks up. Multitasking has never been easier.”
TELUS has also launched The Weather Network app on Optik TV, making it easier for users to check the weather conditions for any city at any time. Customers can view both short and long term weather forecasts, weather alerts and keep up with current weather conditions for up to 10 cities. You can even track the pollen forecast during prime hay fever season, or check out ski conditions for select mountains – including number of runs and lifts open, snow depth, and snow reports.
Multi-View and The Weather Network app are available to all Optik TV customers at no additional charge. However, subscription to Optik High Speed is required to make use of the Weather Network app.
