Not true at all. None of the pirate services have better picture quality and reliability than Rogers or Bell.
If Netfox can have good Internet service with pretty good quality IPTV service so should Vmedia.
Most problems with Vmedia IPTV are related to their android box. Once they complete Vmedia app for Apple TV and release new IPTV box their IPTV will improve greatly in my opinion.
As for picture quality Vmedia has improved a lot as well. I have just visited Canadacomputers few days ago and could not believe the difference.
You don’t need fibre line to have 3Mbps IPTV service working properly.
