That is an MDU setup, where you have a dish on your building an a satellite receiver in your unit.

The Expressvu For Condos service this thread is about isn't directly satellite at all, but VDSL/IPTV, which as said comes fibre to the building, telephone line to the unit to a gateway box which supplies SD to up to 3 TVs, or IPTV with a DSL modem/router and a couple of STBs that connect with coax or ethernet to the router.

Bell Entertainment (IPTV) question

Hey guys,

Currently I have Rogers VIP for $40.15 (after tax), but that promotion is running out, and I dont' want to shell out $60+, so I've been looking at Bell TV.

I was quoted $41/month for a year and that includes 5 theme packs that should get me to about the level of Rogers "VIP" package.

Does anyone have the Bell IPTV, and how is it?

My biggest concern is losing Rogers "On Demand" functionality, since I use it quite a bit to watch shows I miss.

Any feedback?

Thanks!

Anyone have the vdsl STB details or pics of it? I'm considering to take on Bell's vdsl (I know) since its so much cheaper than Rogers right now. I have a TV Monitor with no coaxial input and only has hdmi, component inputs, will this be an issue?

VDSL - no hd, no pvr...sigh.. I'm going to miss Rogers HD, HDPVR but I'm not going to miss the price.

Thanks for that link blackice_plz. My building says that it's eligeable for the PVR service, but not the HD service. Which one woiuld that be and does it include Fiber fed internet?

Digital TV service
– Pause and replay live TV with Canada's best PVR (Personal Video Recorder)
– Crystal–clear digital picture and sound
– Over 400 channels to choose from
– Free installation

I tried a different building (In the yonge/Bloor area) and the description is even different and specifically states "HD Service":

HD Digital TV service
– The most HD channels
– Dolby(R) Digital 5.1 surround sound2
– Pause and replay live TV with Canada's
best PVR (Personal Video Recorder)

And finally, another building I used to live in last month has yet a different service (Expressvu for condos):

Digital TV service
– One set–top box connects up to three TVs –
watch a different show on each TV
– Crystal–clear digital picture and sound
– Over 400 channels to choose from
– Free installation

Bell HD & PVR service is available in 2 forms in MDU's.

iPTV & the Dish Backbone System.

VDSL is limited to SD and no PVR.

The system that blackice_plz refers to "One set–top box connects up to three TVs –
watch a different show on each TV", is the VDSL service.
