Rogers is the first Canadian telecommunications company to offer an integrated remote PVR management and live TV streaming experience on tablets.

"Our customers love to combine TV viewing with multi-tasking. The Rogers Anyplace TV Home Edition app is the ultimate TV companion that provides a seamless experience for our customers," said John Boynton, executive vice-president and chief marketing officer, Rogers Communications.

Rogers Anyplace TV Home Edition is part of a long line of market leadership from Rogers. Last December, Rogers introduced Rogers Live TV, the first application available to Canadians that live streams programming on a tablet from anywhere in the home. Rogers was the first carrier to launch LTE in  Canada, the first with Android smartphones, the first to bring iPhone to  Canada and the first carrier in the world to launch BlackBerry® devices and Windows Phone 8 devices. In addition, Rogers rolled out the first coast-to-coast GSM network in 2001 and was one of the first 10 carriers worldwide to offer HSPA+. Rogers has also led the way as the first telecom provider in  Canada to launch high speed broadband access via cable ( October 1994) and launch Video On Demand on set top boxes ( February 2002).
