Looks like nothing new in Quebec except OWN is available A LA CARTE.

Wish they would figure out how to get WSBK HD, SPEED and NFL Network A LA CARTE.

Not sure how they get away with charging Ontario 20$ for the Premium Movies pack while Quebec pays 13$...

anyone have any luck with asking for a discount on sports packages like extra innings? I've been with bell for years and would like to get a loyalty discount, but i'm not sure how to ask...

Sports Packages

I called and asked for a discount because Rogers in my area offered $30/mnth for all sports packages. This would be $360 for the year and through Bell NHL and NFL would be over $400 for the year. I was told they do not discount the packages but offered me 20% of my total monthly bill for a year which amount to about $240. Still not as good a deal as Rogers but I accepted.

yeah, that's the same deal I was offered too. (on the overall bill, not any sports packages)

Kind of a cross-thread question here. If this is the updated Bell line-up, does it follow that they have no intention of adding new channels in the near future? After all why issue an updated line up if it was going to change in 2 or 3 weeks?

just wondering.

HD Channels

I am positive this has been asked before, maybe even by myself but what is the minimum I have to subscribe to in order to get all the HD channels.?

I know at one time you had to have TSN sd package to get the HD but does this still apply?

Question

Hi, I'm a new member.

The link for "all other regions English" is still pointing to fr; I would post the correct link if I could but I'm sure you can see the error.

I've got two hopefully simple questions: Firstly, is there any way to get Télétoon Rétro as part of an English package? It's part of French Basic; I take it this is mutually exclusive to the English Basic.

And secondly, how does one acquire the "additional hardware required" for certain channels? The asterisk is wonderfully vague but I assume this is an LNBF and/or switch to access satellite 82. Right now we can only get a subset of SD channels using one 2-cable LNBF on a Y arm.

you are correct you will require an additional LNBF and an SW21, for a single tuner to get you the 82 signals.

These are normally supplied and installed for free by Bell TV if you call to subscribe to any Channel from 82 degrees. If you want a DIY approach, the well known On-Line Auction site has everything you will need.

If you spot something on there that you think is what you need, feel free to PM me with the link I will check it out for you.

Thanks. I also found the answer to my other question. Télétoon Rétro French is part of the "French Networks" add-on to the English package for $2 per month. Good stuff.

Question

I noticed today that the pricing of packages on their website for NS are all $10 lower. This is obviously a error as I have not heard of a price decrease. The PDF of the programming brochure still shows the normal prices?

A lot of the pricing on Bell's website assumes a $10 discount for bundling multiple services. Do you see any asterisks?
