Maybe Bell did not get the rights to use restart on this channel in HD.
Hopefully it will be available soon as this is now one of my favourite channels.

Fibe has yet added another Ethnic service(Chakde TV) to their endless line up to serve their ethnic subscriber base.

I'm not exactly sure what Bell is trying to do? Be the #1 ethnic provider in Canada? at this point Bell now carrying over 250 ethnic services!!! That's way more then Rogers is or any other provider?

I think it is a brilliant marketing strategy. Similar to the way banks often give easy credit to new arrivals. If you just arrived from the Middle East, etc., which TV service would you want?

Does it really matter? With IPTV you can load as much crap as you want.

I hope this is the right thread for this. Don't know when it happened but today I noticed on a Montreal relative's account that TCM (Turner Classic Movies) is now available as an "└ la carte" channel. (Bell in QC copies Videotron and offers lots of individual choice, where I think in ON they copy Rogers and sell massive package deals).

They had the The Basics, Favourites, and "15 └ la carte". Wanted TCM but I think it had to be in a bundle with TMN or SC (okay so there's some bundling . Today I saw it sitting in the └ la carte pool, we deselected GSN (which they never watch), added TCM, and <5min later TCM was showing on 338 and 1338.

They're happy.

Question

409- Bell ESPN Classic Message.

As of June 18th Espn Classic will now be located on channel 412.

Interesting? To me this means Bell Fibe will be adding something where ESPN Classic was before?
Me thinks Sports Net 1(418)will move to 409(shortly), hence all the sports net channels(reg, non PPV)will be located from 405-410.

Question

bell Fibe has added some type of "barker" channel. 158/1158

It appears to be some type of Festival channel from Quebec. I can't read french, but it says something like :

Faites portie de la fete tous les jours,du 9 au 19 julilet au 17h30.


Which I think translates to ???? ----??? July 9 to?(I think) July 19 at 5:30 PM

Like I said I casn't read french so I'm not exactly sure if Translated it properly or what he channel is about?

Perhaps "faites partie" which means be part of.

This festival runs Jul 9-19 with Bell as major sponsor. http://www.infofestival.com/m/Home/

BTW did you try 258/1258? I think 200s/1200s are the English channels (in French, "les Manches" -- joke).

Question

258/1258 is CTV2E in Ottawa, not sure what it is in Quebec?

200/1200 is TV shows on Demand in Ottawa, not sure what it is in Quebec. I don't see the English version, at least not yet? :cnfused:

My relative in Montreal gets English channels in the 200a (and HD in the 1200s), e.g. CTV is 201' I thought maybe there was an English version of the festival channel.

Any word or progress on Bell adding Fox Sports Racing? If not, is there an e-mail address or place where complaints/requests can be voiced?
