I guess that time frame would coincide with their new PVR and everything......The original Press release said more info in the coming months.....I was hoping they would go live with the new box sooner rather than latter.
As someone has already said, the April 1st channel changes and additions were for Standard Definition channels only. There are plans currently underway to vastly expand High Definition offerings, however information about what channels and any expected launch date(s) aren't currently available. Once they are, they will be released on mts.ca.
Every time I turn on my TV lately, it automatically goes to Channel 29, MTS Weather. Yesterday I noticed on the crawl across the bottom of the xcreen on that channel that this is happening because of upgrades being conducted by MTS.
Has anyone heard anything? Could this just be the upgrade they recently announced for Portage la Prairie? Or are they doing something in Winnipeg?
(I live in Winnipeg.)
I spoke to customer support on another subject and I found out that the upgrades should be complete by mid-November. I don't know exactly what the upgrades include but they may be needed to feed the Portage trial.
I heard they will be doing an overlay of the new IPTV technology on top of the old Motorola/Next Level stuff in Winnipeg. IPTV will be the premium service for HDTV and PVR.
