Yes you need TV to get Bolt. The Internet package shares the bandwidth into the home between both your Ultimate TV and your Internet. I was very excited to see them drop the price of Bolt, as I was thinking about getting it anyway.
I think the service that you can get without having TV is called Super Max, it is more expensive, but i suspect that Bolt is cheaper cause it shares a common modem and bandwidth with TV anyway.
BTW: They didn't tell me this when I signed up, but in order to get the higher speeds, once you sign up you need to power cycle your Modem / Gateway. At first I wasn't getting anything faster than what I got on Lightning, but after I called in, they told me to power cycle and boom right up to 33Mb - and that was while my PVR was recording a show, so I suspect I will get around 35-36Mb with all my TV's off.
