Just a reminder that the latest batch of channel additions is coming online Wednesday and bringing fee changes with it. If you were planning to adjust your packages now may be the time to act.

May 2014 Price Changes (Mostly Increases)

Effective May 2014 MTS TV prices are changing as follows:

Basic service increases by $3 to $44.50 but the first set top rental is included.

All theme groups increase by $0.50 each except:

Sports Fan - $1 more to $7
B4U from $15.99 to $6
CBN from $14.99 to $6
belN Sports from $19.99 to $14.99

The change to basic service has no impact if you do not have a credit for the box rental but is effectively an increase if you have one.

There are no channel additions listed.

As of your May 2014 bill, the price will increase for Basic TV Service. Your 1st Set-top box will now be included in the monthly price for TV service. If you are not already receiving a credit for your 1st Set-top box, your monthly price for Basic TV service plus one Set-top box will remain the same.
It sounds like this is a price increase of $3 for those people that had 2 STBs and free PVR for life a few years back.

TV Service Old priceNew price
Basic TV Service $41.50 $44.50
1st HD Set-top box $3.00 $0
Total $44.50 $44.50

Note that Classic TV is also going up by $3 to $44.50.

News channel changes

It looks like MTS is making these changes to comply with the recent CRTC ruling re: news channels.

Effective May 15, CTV News Channel is also available as a Pick & Pay.

LCN is moving from channel 402 (Divertissement group) to channel 138 (News group).

RDI and CBC News Network are changing channel numbers to put them with the news channels, but will still be part of Basic.
RDI moves from 27 to 139
CBC News Network moves from 15 (SD)/1015 (HD) to 140/1140.

Sun TV must still be under negotiation.

Channel Group Changes

Channel Group Old priceNew price
Cinema $2.50 $3.00
Divertissement $2.50 $3.00
Famille $2.50 $3.00
Family $3.50 $4.00

Sun News has been added on channels 143 and 1143. This is in keeping with the CRTC must-carry ruling. There is also no free preview at this time.

MTS Scores a Hat Trick with Three New TSN Channels

Winnipeg Jets coverage now included as part of MTS TV basic package

MTS, Manitoba's leading full-service telecommunications provider, today announced that it will carry TSN's expanded line-up of five national feeds: TSN1, TSN2, TSN3, TSN4 and TSN5. With this expansion, Winnipeg Jets games will now appear on TSN3 and be included in MTS TV's Basic Service channel group.

"At MTS, we understand how much Manitobans love their Winnipeg Jets," said Paul Norris, Vice President of Brand & Consumer Marketing for MTS. "With even more great sports programming included in MTS's basic channel package, Jets fans will be able to watch more than 60 games - home and away - without paying a separate fee."

TSN3 will appear in standard definition on Channel 22 for MTS Ultimate TV and Classic TV subscribers, and high definition on Channel 1022 for MTS Ultimate TV subscribers. MTS Digital Cable subscribers can also catch the hockey action on Channel 6.

Winnipeg Jets regional games were previously only available with a subscription to the TSN Jets channel. Starting this season (2014-2015), TSN's package of regional Winnipeg Jets hockey games will be included in the Basic Service channel group on TSN3. Existing subscriptions to the TSN Jets channel have been discontinued and customers will not be charged for the 2014-2015 season. For the full broadcast schedule please visit: www.tsn.ca/jets.
Press Release.

The bottom line is that TSN JETS is being discontinued since the Jets games will be shown on the standard TSN channel on Basic.

So if I understand correctly we are getting all of the Jets games that are owned by TSN for free because TSN3 will be part of our basic package? That is awesome!
