There is no way around it... It is Bell's policy!
Back in time, when Express Vu started they let some client have 7-8 receivers. When they decided they didn't want their clients to have more than 6 receivers the privileges was "grandfathered" to certain clients that had 7-8 receivers and were threathening to leave. This represent a very thinny % of Bell's clients. For those who didn't complain new rule applies
The only solution I see for your friend is to re-sale the receiver he bought and getting dual tuner, which is good for 2 TV's, but is still considered as ONE receiver for Bell's records. Possibility of 12 rooms hooked on BellTV on oe account.
Also note that since he has more than 3 receivers (which are propably not all hooked up to a telephone line) and espcially that he has that expensive programmin package, he is more likely to get called by the MRVP (also called SAT team) to "verify" his receivers. MRVP is there to verify that client are not account sharing. If your friend ignore their calls or refuse to do the "verification" they will end up cutting his service on some of his receivers, until he makes the "verification"
I used Videotron in the past and I think they are also limiting the numbers of receiver per account...
