There are plenty of things on an Android box not available here, including a lot of International channels, and other stations like ESPN and FS1/2 (and no, I don't want to watch re-hashed things via TSN or SN).
Don't waste your time. He doesn't get it and never will. Just because he enjoys the TV that Bell overcharges him for doesn't mean everyone else does.
He has lots of sanctimonius posts the last few days about having morals like all good catholics and crap like that.
I personally would gladly sign up for those stations you mentioned along with many others, but they are not allowed in our protectionist telecom industry as the media companies no they can't compete against real competition.
Which has zero to do with the discussion of eliminating Simsubs completely which has helped push some people to alternate means like netflix or for some people Android TV boxes.
It's time the canadian media companies learn how to compete like other businesses do. If they offered a product at a fair price would be fine, but It's all about gouging the customer. Always has been.
For too many years they have been allowed to live under protectionist regulations in the. telecom industry.
Other than the CBC, all the other networks are slaves to US programming. They say it's to help fund canadian programming, but most of the canadian content produced is either realty TV garbage or news.
Try creating good Canadian made dramas that people will watch for once instead of constantly whining about the slightest bit of competition you might face in your CRTC created monopoly.
Worse thing the CRTC ever allowed was for local stations to be bought up by the bell's and roger's of the media world. it's been a downhill slide ever since as the only company incentive is too make profits for shareholders.
Just another Bell shill on these boards, must be a shareholder.
