During a typical summer, Canadians flock to the great outdoors the moment temperatures begin to climb. But in an effort to keep our bubbles to a minimum this summer, many of us exchanged that national pastime with binge-watching TV.
Problem is, with more of us at home this fall, we’ve already watched all our favourites, and attempting to find a new show in a sea of content options can feel exhausting.
If only there was easy access to undiscovered programming that can transport us from the couch to a bold new world?
That’s where TELUS comes in! With fresh content offerings for Optik TV and Pik TV subscribers through the On Demand library, included in customers’ current packages at no additional cost, beginning October 5.
TELUS Presents curates and delivers hard-to-find shows from abroad, making it easy to discover new favourites that are sure to delight both TV aficionados and those simply looking for their next binge-worthy series.

The town’s secret is out as a battle between nature, science, and faith erupts.

An award-winning and critically acclaimed series, Save Me is the story of a most unlikely hero, Nelson ‘Nelly’ Rowe (Lennie James), and his search for Jody, his missing daughter.
