Bell Fibe TV Customers Will No Longer Need Fibe Internet to Access TV Services in 2017
This Tuesday, Bell announced a change to their Fibe TV service. Beginning in 2017, the company says Fibe TV customers will no longer be required to also sign up for Fibe Internet service in order to access their Fibe TV service.
“As we align our next-generation IPTV technologies, we’re bringing exclusive Fibe features to Atlantic Canada and new options for Fibe TV customers in Ontario and Québec,” said Wade Oosterman, Bell Group President and Chief Brand Officer.
“Fibe has become the country’s most popular television service because of the constant stream of new content and feature innovations we’re bringing to Canadian TV viewers. With these latest enhancements, we’re making it even easier for consumers to experience all that Fibe can do.”
Earlier this summer, the mega communications company stated that its FibreOP TV service available in Atlantic Canada would be integrating with Bell Fibe TV in Ontario and Québec.
Fibe TV offers a range of exclusive features, including wireless TV, Restart, which lets viewers restart and watch TV shows up to 30 hours after they’ve aired, Trending, which lists the most-watched shows in Canada at any given time, and the Fibe TV app, which allows viewers to watch Fibe TV content on a smartphones or other mobile device.
Fibe TV has proven popular with consumers, posting strong growth since its original introduction in late 2010 which has enabled Bell to be ranked as Canada’s #1 TV service provider.
According to a press release statement, Bell plans to invest a further $1 billion in 2016 to bring Fibe capability to a total of approximately 3 million homes and businesses in Atlantic Canada, Ontario and Québec.
