Word from an MTS employee I know says they will be adding 3 more HD channels in late 2008, maybe November. No changes until then?

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.

I heard through a retailer that MTS is going to launch a new HD gateway sometime in the summer. Anyone else heard the same?

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.

Fox Affliliate Switched for MTS TV

Just noticed today that MTS TV has switched to Minneapolis/St. Paul FOX affiliate KMSP, from the Rochester New York affiliate. Good decision to bring the channel closer to home for Manitobans.

Now if we could only get a major market ABC affiliate with decent picture quality. WDAZ has to be the oddest choice for a channel ever.

MTStv Upgrades Underway?

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.)

MTS Upgrades

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.

Dang.
I'd love to upgrade to HD, but I'm holding off because I don't want to pay for a box that I'll want to upgrade in a few months.
