For the second part of your question?
I'm not sure of what exactly Bell Fibe is in every area.
For the first part of your question?
Yes, i"m not joking. Bell has over 250 ethnic services, just this month alone they at least 5 or so launched. On average they seem to launch anywhere between 3-8 ethnic channels a month.Some I'm not even sure why? IE Mad World as an example plays Greek Music video's, an in all honesty the majority who watch the Greek channels are the "older Generation" Parents & Grandparents, most of the younger generation usally don't watch them.Not sure if this is the same in al ethnic pop groups or npt.
BTV WILL NEVER have the same amount of Ethnic services as Bell Fibe,
Band width for one and most live in major cities like in the GTA, Ottawa & Montreal.
Also I think BFTV is tryiong to compete with Rogers in Ontario & Videotron in Montreal.
Now grant you I don't know what the ethnic break down is these Metropolitan is, so can't really say what their sub rate is to these channels.
But it appears at least BFTV has GONE ETHNIC CRAZY!!! with every(well almost every)ethnic channel that have either launched or will if licensed
Because if you look at their line up the ethnic channels run from about 650-899 with only a few missing channels and have even started placing "new ones' in the 2000 range.
The catch is even if they get more ethnic subs from other providers, those subs still need to sub at least to the basic package before they can sub to any ethnic service.
