Watch Live TV on Your Tablet - Only with Eastlink

Watch Live TV on Your Tablet - Only with Eastlink
A game changer for the personal, in-home viewing experience

Halifax, NS – Eastlink further extends its TV leadership with the launch of the Eastlink Maestro Streamer. At a time when easy access to TV content across multiple devices is in hot demand, Eastlink’s Maestro platform allows customers to stream live TV & DVR recordings to their tablets & smart phones.

“We live in a multi-screen world,” said Lee Bragg, CEO Eastlink. “Customers want the easiest and most accessible way to watch their favourite content on their personal device in the comfort of their home.”

About Eastlink’s new Maestro Streamer

  • Viewers can now access all the content to which they subscribe for their TV experience – live and recorded – on their tablet or smart phone leveraging their in-home WiFi network
  • Using the simple and intuitive guide on their tablet or smart phone, viewers can:
    • easily search, select, watch (including pause and rewind) live TV content
    • access and manage DVR recordings
    • program single or full series recordings

Early Media Streamer customer feedback has been very positive including:

·        “Just like when I curl up on the couch with a good book, I can now watch live TV or my recordings on my tablet in my favorite comfy spot in the house.”

·        “It’s cool that I get to watch two hockey games at once - one on my big screen while keeping my eye on the second game on my smaller screen.”

·        “I love the fact that I can stop or pause a show I’m watching on my tablet or smart phone, and then pick it up exactly where I left off later on the same device.”

·        “The guide is really smart; it tells me at a quick glance if the program I want to watch is a new or repeat episode. It saves me the disappointment of tuning in only to find out I’ve already seen it.”

·        “I’m so happy not having to worry about data charges because this uses my in-home WiFi network.”

Consistent with the company’s focus on delivering an Unmatched TV experience, Eastlink has developed a compelling portfolio of TV products and services that thrive in today’s multi-screen viewing environment including:

·        Stream Live TV and DVR recordings with Maestro Streamer

·        Ability to pause live TV in any room and record up to 6 shows at once with Maestro
