This channel is NOT available on Bell Satellite, at least as far as I can see.

As far as I know, only Eastlink carries this channel, mainly to subscribers in Newfoundland, as well as a few selected subscribers in the Maritimes. (e.g not available in Halifax, but it is available in Dartmouth)

Just scrolled through on Bell and didn't see it in HD. Only the SD at 199.

That's true, DanJ, and Eastlink is the only provider who carries the HD version of this channel at the current time, at least as far as I know.

Bell Aliant TV should soon be offering it. There is an info channel on 406 that says NTV is among several new HD locals that will appear starting at 400 (likely between 400 and 405) in the coming weeks. Other new HD channels include local CBC, CTV, SRC and Global from Atlantic Canada. The existing HD east feeds from Toronto/Montreal are moving to the timeshifting theme pack.

Can't wait for the HD version to be carried by more providers. It looks great in HD watching OTA locally!

Anyone know when this is going to happen? I called Aliant today to find out, and the agent didn't know a thing about it.

NTV HD should be added to Rogers in the Ontario region

I think first we would have to determine why Ontario no longer has it at all as far as Rogers goes. I thought it was there the last time I had Rogers. I used it many a time in my Bell days when I wanted to watch something but didn't want to stay up to watch it locally. Especially beneficial was the New Year's Eve broadcast, so I could celebrate at 10:30 and not have to stay up until midnight.

I would love to see this channel again in any way, shape, or form. Obviously HD would be preferable. I was getting sick of watching Hawaii Five-0 in SD at 7pm local time because I couldn't stay up to watch in HD at 10pm on Global.
