You know that tablet or smartphone you’re holding – the one you use for streaming movies, playing games, reading and virtually everything else these days? Well, now you can add watching and controlling live TV and managing your PVR* to the seemingly never-ending list of your device’s uses, thanks to the new Rogers Anyplace TV Home Edition app.
Available for iPhone, iPad and Android devices, the app lets you navigate, search, set PVR recordings and live-stream content to your device, without interrupting what’s playing on your big-screen TV. Think about the true benefits for a sec: you’re on the couch watching Dexter, but you’re also following the Toronto Raptors’ game. Catch both without flipping back and forth. And if you actually do want to channel surf, Rogers Anyplace TV Home Edition turns your tablet or smartphone into a remote control, too.

The service also lets you manage and set PVR programming wherever you are, straight from your device. So, if you’re out somewhere and realize you forgot to set your PVR to record a show (or you need to erase content to make room for new recordings), simply do it from your device.
