I would have to pay $70 for unlimited internet and $90 for a tv package that is close to Bell's Better package
That would be comparable to Bell's Best package at $195/mo in the second half of a 2 year contract. A more comparable option to Bell's Better package at $164 would be Start's Unlimited internet at $60 and Start's Premium TV at $50 plus one or two $10 theme packs. Total $120/$130. Bell makes their offerings look good with a first year discount but they get it back in the second year and thereafter.
Things are worse if a no contract option is selected with Bell. They want a $210 installation fee and other discounts may not apply. All Start services are contract free. Bell also does not guarantee prices for the term of the contract. They can raise prices and add extra fees during the contract.
TV hardware prices are extra with Start. Bell's PVR hardware is included in the bundle contract price but that is subject to change. Outside of the bundle, Bell's PVR hardware is significantly more expensive. Bell's 4k PVR is $600 or $20/mo vs Start's $125 or $10/mo with cloud PVR. Bell's basic receiver is $199 or $8/mo vs Start's $125 or $10/mo.
If customer wants to have only basic package for $20 then there is no way to add channels like CP24.
Start has pick and pay for individual channels. The price can be found by clicking on the channel in the channel list. However, prices are fairly high, at typically $3 to $5 per channel. CP24 is $5. That's not as high as Rogers ($5-$8) or Bell ($4-$7) but still high. Options like like Bell's 10 for $20, and VMedia's 5 or more for $2 per channel and 10 or more for $1.75 per channel don't appear to be available.
Start Tv doesn’t offer any support for media players as far as I know.
As stated previously, Start TV supports iOS and Android media players though there are problems reported by some users of those apps. Proprietary media players such as Amazon Fire, Chromecast and Roku are not currently supported. Those devices are not universal in their support for Canadian services or even each other's services in the US so it's not surprising.
