Has anyone else noticed that their bundle discounts are reduced? I called twice and and the second call got some of the cost refunded. I had a $16 bundle discount. Now it's $13. I was successful in getting back $3 for 6 months ($18). But that is not good enough. Why can't Bell keep the prices that customers signed up for?? What is wrong with them??

It's already done, when they made the announcement, they also put it on free preview.

Keep in mind, it you remove it, you lose rds2.

Likely QC only, I'll check later and update my post.

Correct, only in QC, is TSN in the base in Ontario?

My January bill for 3 services (Rogers cable + internet, Teksavvy phone) came in at ~$240. Granted, there were a few movie rentals, but I think it's time to chop that sucker down by about $100, if possible.

If I were a new Fibe customer, what would I be looking at for 3 services? I would need a PVR and two cable boxes for other TVs.

Cisco 8642 500Gb PVR

I have 3 services, TV, Internet and home phone and my latest bill was $243.55. That's with no rentals, and I have credits applied to all 3 services. Not sure how someone could even get close to $130.

thats probably the new customer promo price, after the promos end, the price goes up to the "Regular" rate. a lot of people mistakenly assume the promo price will be the price they pay "forever"

You'll want to add in the two extra boxes

I am trying to clarify the rebate offered by Bell for the 3 services bundle. In the quote I got, it says the rebates are good for 3 months. The rep is telling me that the rebates are good for a year to not care about what is written in the quote. The rep even told me to call her back in 1 year and she will reapply the rebates to the different services in the bundle. I want to know the real cost of these services because I won't really save anything if the rebates go away. Whose right?

Joel.

She is offering :

Internet 50: for 69.95, less 13$ rebate(3 months in quote), plus free modem. = 56.95

Phone: 29.60, plus 6.95 for network fees, less 6.95 rebate. = 29.60

FIBE TV: 15 channel à la carte: 54.95
TMN 15.00
Super Écran 15.00
1 HD PVR rental 15.00
2 HD Terminal rental 14.00
TMN Rebate (2 months) - 15.00
S-É rebate (2 months) -15.00
HD PVR Rebate -15.00
Network fee 3.00

Total per month 71.95
