If you’ve ever wished you could have a TV in every room of your house, you’re in luck. Introducing the Rogers Live TV app, currently in beta, that lets you stream live TV on your iPad. The latest in TV innovations, and a first in Canada, this new app gives you the freedom to watch shows from anywhere in the home.
At launch, customers will be able to stream 20 channels through their iPad, with more channels coming soon. And there is no additional cost to Rogers Live TV.
We’re anticipating a full launch of Rogers Live TV app in early 2012. A version for Android tablets will be available soon.
How it works:
Step 1: Check eligibility – The Rogers Live TV app is available via WiFi to Rogers digital television customers in Ontario who subscribe to Rogers Hi-Speed Internet with a MyRogers account.
Step 2: Set up your MyRogers profile – If you’re already registered for a MyRogers profile, move on to Step 3. If not, just go here to create your profile. Next, associate your Rogers digital television and Hi-Speed Internet accounts to your MyRogers ID. (You will need the account number found on your invoice).
Step 3: Download the app –Just download the free app from the iTunes app store, log in using your MyRogers profile and start streaming.
Step 4: Start streaming! – You’ll now have a selection of great content to watch on your iPad. Not all channels you subscribe to will be available on the app, but we’ll be expanding the list of channels in the future. Like any WiFi usage, Internet datawill count towards your monthly internet bandwidth allotment.

UPDATE (December 20, 2011, 11:46 am): The Rogers Live TV app is now available for Samsung Galaxy 10.1 tablets. Download it for free here.
