"should be avail" is just the CSR being cautious, since they don't have any specific info about the channel. Bell wouldn't have added the channel unless it would be available after the preview. It's not unusual for a TV provider to have a new channel on preview and not have it available to add as a subscribed channel until the preview is almost over. My advice is to check again near the end of the preview if you want to get it right away.

Can confirm that 1421 is available in PEI. No flag in the EPG listing to indicate that it a free preview.

Also, I'm suddenly getting AMC but again nothing in the EPG about it being a time limited preview. Any info?

Anyone else notice that the audio is very low on1421 FSR? I have to turn the volume up on my TV from 35 to 50 to hear it properly.

It's horrible actually.

I think that it's being encoded incorrectly...I had no centre channel at all.

Gone from me as well now.
I called them and it is in the BEST package or $4.00 a month a la carte. Bell gets too much of my money now. I will have to think about it.

I decided to add. Went online and added via ala carte menu. It was in the guide within 5 minutes. Will probably cancel after NASCAR season ends.

As much as I'd like to, I decided to pass on FSR, just because the sound is literally horrid.
Not entirely sure what they are doing, because the sound coming from Fox Sports 1 is perfect.

a note from my current Bell bill ...

The following channels will no longer be offered by their content providers: Comedy Gold as of Aug. 30, 2019, and IFC and CosmoTV as of Sept. 30, 2019. If you have any of these channels in a Custom Pack, we will add a replacement channel that you can change at any time
