Billing FAQ

  • All of our packages are designed to allow for:
    • Web surfing
    • Checking emails
    • Sending and receiving pictures
    • VOIP, Skype, etc.
    • Peer to Peer and other video type web based activities
  • The main difference between packages is the speed at which you can do each of these.
  • VOIP service would see better service with Extreme or above.
  • We strongly encourage Gamers, and heavier users of Peer to Peer to use our Extreme or Ultimate packages to maximize their performance and satisfaction.

TV User FAQ

Yes, it does! Two options – VCloud TV and PVR – Easy, Flexible, Free!

VMedia offers two great platforms so you’ll never miss your favourite shows; VCloud TV and PVR.

Our innovative VCloud TV, unique in Canada, gives you quick access to any show aired within the past 7 days up to 27 channels, including all the major Canadian and US networks. A huge range of popular programs – just a few clicks and and it’s up on your screen. That fast. That cool.

And for everything else, there is our client side PVR, which allows you to record and save any show on any subscribed channel to a convenient storage device and then watch when you want.

VMedia TV – TV on your schedule.

PVR – Record Your Favourite Shows

With our PVR (Beta), you can record any show, at any time, on any channel that you have subscribed for and watch it when you want.

This PVR function, which we call “client-side” PVR, allows you to record a show while watching it, or record one program while watching another one on another channel or set up a recording for some time later within the next 24 hours.

And PVR comes with your VBox and no need to pay for more expensive set top receiver.

With VMedia’s PVR, all you need is a handy storage device – an SD Card or USB key (2.0). Simply, set up your storage device in your VBox, highlight the program in the TV Guide or watch it live and press the Red button on your remote to record. Fast, cool and easy to use.

PVR is a great companion to our unique VCloud TV platform, and together they provide a dynamic solution for ensuring that you have access to all the shows you love to watch!

VCloud TV – Advanced “Scroll-Back” TV

Only VMedia’s VCloud gives ‘scroll- back’ TV, where you can scroll back in the week in the TV Guide on your screen, select a show you missed, click ok and it’s up on your screen. And no wait time to download.

With VCloud TV, you get quick access to any show aired within the past 7 days on 25 channels. Our list of VCloud channels includes CTV, CBC, Global, CityTV, NBC, CBS, ABC, FOX, PBS, CW, MyTV, TVO, CHCH, Yes TV, CTV2Barrie, CBC Ottawa, CBC Windsor, ICI, OMNI1 and OMNI2, as well as specialty channels, Silver Screen Classics, Travel & Escape, Cottage Life and OUTtv.
