. If I had a billing address in QC and a service address in Ottawa, would CBC Ottawa HD appear in my guide?
Just change your billing address to Ontario, and don't get a paper bill mailed. Are you far enough away from Ottawa that you can't get CBC Ottawa OTA?

I am in Montreal,so cannot get Ottawa OTA. My concern is that I am on the A LA CARTE PACKAGE only available in Quebec. Switching my address to Ottawa might not work, as that platform is not offered in Ottawa.

Does anybody know? For example, if you lived in Quebec and had a Bell TV account with A LA CARTE, could you keep the same programming if you moved to Ontario, or would you have to revert to GOOD BETTER BEST?

I don't think we will be getting Fox Sports 1 in Canada.

You never know. Recently, FX Canada has not been stating, "Not Available on Bell" at the end of their commercials. It could be sooner than one may think. I think the addition of OMNI 1&2 in HD are a good sign that Bell is able to negotiate HD channels with Rogers.

@cyclist44 If Bell TV adds the Speed HD feed, then maybe the CRTC won't care about the switch over to FOX Sports 1.. just look at SpikeTV.

Dish Network with (2) 211k's and Bell TV with (2) 6131's and (2) 4100's.

It's a sports category channel. I don't think it matters what is being broadcast on it, whether it's racing or something else.

Unless bell is pulling a fast one and adding SPEEDHD knowing full well they'll be required to remove it in a month lol.

"Well look, we added it SPEEDHD finally for all you people complaining about it for years, it's not our fault they changed to FS1 and CRTC won't allow it and we had to remove it again."

I've said this all along, I think that when Speed becomes FOX Sports One in August, the channel will remain available in Canada. They will likely replace certain live sporting events with alternate programming for Canada when another broadcaster has the rights to that program.

Bell likely signed a long term agreement with FOX to carry this feed so I doubt it's going anywhere in August.
