@bobjs it could be only in the 4 launch cities for now. It could also be that the channel won't even show up on older PVRs. You may need a VIP2262.

It would be interesting to see when they start broadcasting 4k content if a VIP2262 that is set for 1080p output will downscale the 4k signal to 1080p and produce a noticeably better picture than the equivalent HD channel.

Question

I'm in Ottawa have the VIP 2262 PVR & 3 HD 2262 receivers and 1399 is showing up on all 4 receivers. Now whether being Ottawa has anything to do with it, that I don't know? As to the Station ID
1400 is TSN HD 5 & 1399 accord to the "Custom guide it states Bell Sportnet Ont 4K as to why they say Bell instead of Rogers got no clue. So you don't need to have the 4K receiver to receive either channel 4000 or 1399. Now to view it in 4K that I don' know on the 2262 in true 4k?

just thought Im would pass this along to anyone wanting to get the 4k receiver and is currently under a 2yr agreement with bell fibe this is the result I received after complaining about having to pay for this receiver when I never had to pay for my hd pvr


Good morning Mr. Sutherland,

Further to our recent conversation regarding your Bell FibeTV service, I would like to confirm the following:

- Once the 4K receiver will be available in your area, we will swap your current rental PVR unit and waive the install fee.
- A new rental agreement will start upon activation. You will continue to benefit from an ongoing monthly credit to cover the 4K unit’s rental fee.


Thank you,




Leo

Just got a call from Bell regarding 4K..... It's available in my area (Oakville) right now for $499. I say "that's way to expensive." She says "I agree," then gets flustered and tells me that it will be available for rental at the end of February.

Here are links to 3 articles about 4K in Canada from a production side.

The first is Bell and it's 4K production and lack of HDR. Some information on the shared Bell Rogers production side from Dome productions. Finally, Rogers pumping the brakes on HDR which they touted in October.
Dr.Dave, ticky and remush like this.

Anybody get clarity on what the Bell rental will be on the 4K pvr so we can make an intelligent decision of buy vs rental? There has been some discussion that the rental may have a partial credit against it?

Dr.Dave, perhaps we could have a discussion on when someone should consider a 4K TV?

I sit 120 inches away from my TV. Right now I have a 48" Toshiba and at the time could not afford anything bigger. I would like to replace it with a 65 inch, which will fit the space I have. Bigger is not an option.

What's the ratio of size to distance for HD versus UHD? I've heard HD is 1:1.5 and UHD is 1:1.

Thanks, Rich
