Bell Launches the World’s First Fully Wireless 4K IPTV Service with Fibe TV
Yesterday, Bell announced the availability of the new Home Hub 3000 from Fibe TV. The new modem/router provides consumers in Canada with the country’s most powerful Wi-Fi as well as the world’s first fully wireless IPTV service through the Wireless 4K Whole Home PVR.
“Bell has taken the leadership position in Canadian broadband communications with a strategy of unparalleled investment in advanced networks and continuous Fibe TV and Fibe Internet service innovation,” said Rizwan Jamal, President of Bell Residential and Small Business Services. “Our team is proud to deliver the latest Bell TV and Internet exclusives that take full advantage of the power of the Fibe network to our residential customers.”
The Home Hub 3000
The Home Hub 3000 modem/router offers broad coverage throughout the home. The new tool includes 12 antennas, total throughput capability of up to 1 Gigabit, automatic channel switching for reduced interference, and tri-band technology supporting multiple connected devices including smartphones, tablets and game consoles.
An additional benefit of the Home Hub 3000 is the fact that it is 3 times more powerful than the previous Home Hub 2000. It offers a web interface to manage Wi-Fi access and settings, and a battery back-up that can last for up to 4 hours in a power outage.
Fibe Wireless 4K Whole Home PVR
Fibe TV is flexible and can be located anywhere in your home. By using the Fibe Wireless 4K Whole Home PVR, consumers receive 4K quality with 4 times the detail of Full HD, up to 150 hours of 4K recording capacity and Bluetooth remote that enables out-of-sight positioning of the PVR.
Fibe TV is Canada’s fastest growing TV service. It offers stunning picture quality and a range of features, such as Restart, which lets you restart and watch TV shows up to 30 hours after they started; Trending, which lists the most-watched shows in Canada at any given time; and the Fibe TV app, which brings the Fibe experience to smartphones and tablets with access to more than 450 live and on-demand channels and full control of content through mobile devices including the Apple Watch.
According to Bell, the company plans to invest approximately $1 billion in broadband fibre services in 2016. This will expand Bell Gigabit Fibe Internet capability to a total of approximately 3 million homes and businesses in Ontario, Québec and Atlantic Canada by the end of the year.
