The Weather app provides accurate, up-to-date weather forecasts. You can quickly access local weather, long-term forecasts, and even customize information based on where you live and your viewing preferences. You can also add additional locations or remove them. You can display the temperature in degrees Celsius and the wind speed in kilometres per hour for easy reference.
Access the Weather App
To access the Weather app, press the HELIX button on your voice remote, go to the Apps section of the menu and select Weather.
Using the Weather App
Check out the current weather forecasts or press the centre button to see the Long-term Forecasts. Then navigate using the left and right arrows to highlight the day of the week for which you want detailed forecasts.
Good to know
Press and hold the Microphone button on the voice remote while saying “Weather” and the name of the city for which you want the weather forecast. (For example: "Weather Sainte-Adèle")
Customize your Weather App
By default, the app shows the weather forecasts for the city in which your Helix TV terminal is located. You can, however, add locations to know about the weather at the cottage or in the different cities where your loved ones live, for example.
Just press the down arrow while in the Weather app and select Add a Location. You can use the voice remote to enter the postal code or the name of the city. Conversely, you can remove locations to display only the information you want to see.
Do you always start the day by consulting stock market prices? Now you can do this on your TV!
Access the Stocks App
Launch the Stocks app by pressing the HELIX button on your voice remote, accessing the Apps section of the menu and selecting Stocks in the Daily Life section.
Using the Stocks App
This gives you access to two categories: Your Shares and Performing Shares. Simply use the up and down arrow keys to scroll through the shares and press the centre button to view the details. You even have access to news articles related to the shares.
Customize your Stocks App
To add a stock to the Your Shares list, scroll down using the down arrow and select Add a Share. Then spell the share’s ticker or the name of the company using the left and right arrow buttons to highlight each letter. When a result that matches your search is displayed on the screen, select it using the centre button. A message is displayed to confirm that the stock has been added to your list.
To remove a stock from your list, go to Your Shares and scroll through the list until you find the stock you want to delete. Select it and press once on the right arrow to highlight the X icon. Press the centre button. A message is displayed asking if you really want to remove the stock. Select Delete and confirm your selection. The stock will then be removed from the Your Shares list.
