Question Kid's Suit On Demand?

Has anyone else gotten an e-mail stating that Kid's Suite On Demand has been added to their channel subscription free of charge complainants of Bell?

It's funny that the web page title says "free preview," but everything else indicates it's a permanent part of the packages.

Kids Suite used to be part of the TMN Movies package.

Question

I can't comment on other providers but with Bell(fibe) Kids Suite was $3 extra if you wanted it. I guess not enough people where buying it so they just included it your TV package. AFAIK it appears to be included in the Best Package now?

Got my latest bill from Bell.

Effective March 10 2016 CHEK-Victoria,NTV & TVA West will no longer be available on your Base TV Package?

UH come again? What that suppose to mean? Are they dropping dropping the channels or are they just being moved to another package? or part of Timeshifting or will only be available via PnP?

Below is a link to the full list of each area and what channels they are losing from their basic service to the time-shift ones. Being in Toronto, I'm not really upset about losing CHEX, CKWS or the other crappy, non-HD channels except for the fact I'll continue to pay the same amount for fewer and fewer channels. Though I find it weird that Oshawa for instance loses CHEX in Peterborough and OMNI in Toronto considering they are so close to both.

Removal of some out-of-region channels from TV packages

Thanks for the link ticky.

Although I will be losing them out of my basic package I'll still ber receiving them viamy time-shifting package. Though I wish I was getting the other locals in thatr list that I'm not getting either through my basic or time-shifting.

So if these channels are being moved to the Time-shifting package, I'm assuming there's a Channel re-alinement uin the works then? If so I hope they move all the ethnic serivces in the 2000 from the uppe 600's,700's & 800's into the 2000's

Now here's a fascinating question...

What will be the threshold for each channel to maintain carriage, be it either subscriber numbers or price, or a combination of both for Bell to keep them in a Pick & Pay paradigm.

It appears that maybe the channels mentioned above have renegotiated contracts.

Now's the time to keep an eye on your favourite channels to see if they get reallocated and have your calculator handy to do some math.

It appears Bell is taking away more and more channels from the present packages turning them into P & P and not lowering the cost of the present packages, hence you want to keep those channels you've got to pay more!!!

I'll bet you by the time Dec 2016 arrives way more channels will be dropped entirely or will be removed from the present packages to P & P and if you want those same channels you'll have to pay more and even if you go to the "new packages" you'll still have to pay more?

The channels mentioned above all have very low viewership, so who really cares. Bell knows the stats, and this is why they are doing it. This is just a cheap trick for Bell to make more money from the packages.
