Note : While knowing if other applications are working, we do require you to complete all troubleshooting. As our TV is different from their abilities and servers.
You can only use the App on your personal Teksavvy Internet service. Only certain GoApp's will work off your Network. This also means all VPN's must be disabled on the device using the App.
Is your Internet working?
Our TV service is an IPTV so it needs internet to work. If your internet is being down / super slow, that would be why your TV does not work.
Is the Service Slow/TV buffering?
Since it is an internet application if your internet is slow / buffering in general, that will impact the TV service. Please find out more on troubleshooting that issue here.
Cannot Login using MySavvy Account
TV is not an included service. You must order it before you can login and use the App or any Go Apps we have access to. Please click here to go over ordering the service.
TV App will not work on one of my devices
Our TV is only supported on Approved Devices. Please click here to find the list. If it is not posted we are sorry it cannot be used. Feel free to keep checking in! We will post all new devices as they are available.
Android device security level
Some devices do not meet the requirements for our App. To find out :
download DRMINFO program
go to Widevine CDM > Security info - needs to be L1 or L2
Another level L3 may at some point get updated but we cannot guarantee that. As it is the security level required to work the App due to broadcasting guidelines and restrictions. We also cannot update your device to these levels.
Apple iOS 15
Apple has introduced a feature called 'Private Relay' within the latest version of iOS 15. The feature is described as "Private Relay is an internet privacy service that hides your IP address in Safari and protects your unencrypted traffic. When it's on, you can browse the web in a more secure and private way." (Users must be subscribed to iCloud+ in order for the feature to be utilized).
The TekSavvy TV application will launch, however will not be able to play back any content. Due to our agreements with content providers we do not allow access to TekSavvy TV while off network, when using 'Private Relay' all of the traffic on the device is sent through a proxy (off network) that is attempting to access TekSavvy TV data.
1.) Navigate to 'Settings'
2.) Select the 'Apple ID' account at the top
3.) Select 'iCloud'
4.) Select 'Private Relay', then move the slider accordingly
