For someone with a user name such as mine you may not think I have nice things to say about MTS....but for the fact that MTS TV has only been around for less than 5 years now, they have done very well in my books. I may not use them personally, but I have seen the product in use at other people's homes..
MTS has a wider range of digital pick and pay channels when compared to Shaw. ones I wish I could have, such as TV Land, Punch Much, and Much More Retro to name a few. MTS' guide has the logos and the ability to remove channels or change the order when compared to Shaw, but Shaw's is much more appeasing to the eyes overall....but thats a personal preference.
MTS has been all digital and 1 box does 3 TV's - Whereas Shaw has only become all digital as of April 18 and the starter boxes are $48 each. But now that Shaw is all digital, MTS has lost one of its key selling points - ALL DIGITAL.
MTS bundles are great if you want all their services, as with Shaw, so most people I know are all MTS or all Shaw. I myself am Shaw for TV, Phone, and Internet, but Cell is still with MTS for now.
MTS having only 8 HD channels.... give them time... they will catch up, Shaw has only gotten serious in the past year, and we only just got 6 new HD channels....MTS will have their day in the spotlight when they add more. All I know is I like it...because as a consumer its only me who saving money when companies compete!
but in closing, you won't see me going to MTS anytime soon.....Too many hidden fees - especially on home phone....but at the same point....look I came up with some positive feedback about the company. lol
