How do I receive the no-monthly-fee Channels?

Are there any restrictions on the no-monthly-fee Channels?

How can I connect my other TV’s to UnmeteredTV service?

Each CipherTV hardware is compatible to work with a single TV. To enable your other TV’s, simply purchase or rent additional CipherTV hardware for each TV.


What is the UnmeteredTV streaming player and how does it work?

The UnmeteredTV (CipherTV in AB & BC) is a device powered by Android OS that enables you not only to stream videos, TV programs and music, but it also allows you to do other things like be socially connected with Social Networking Apps, connect to your loved ones via Skype, MSN, YM or even play games in your very own TV. UnmeteredTV hardware streams videos (rather than downloads) so you’ll get instant access to a huge library of entertainment without having to store any video files on your computer or hard drive.


Do I need a computer to use the UnmeteredTV?

No, you don’t need a PC. UnmeteredTV connects directly to your TV and your high-speed wired or wireless internet and lets you access the streaming channels that you signed up for (like Netflix, TED or with our very own UnmeteredTV) right from your TV.
