"There will be no benefit picture or sound wise, BUT, as you mentioned, you will save money by bundling. HD picture quality will be the same, if not better than Shaw. Contracts are optional, you can go month to month if you like.
Don't forget, TELUS Satellite TV is the same as Bell TV (same packages, same prices, same equipment). "
I switched to Bell because Shaw's service staff stood me up 3x when i moved to our new home. On the day Bell came to install our satellite feed, shaw finally got their act together and got me activated so i was able to confirm the exact channels and the display on my tv.. guess what! The Bell feed was better than Shaw.. so yes Bell has better HD quality!

|DIGITALEight||No, you can't get TELUS Satellite in Ontario. I just checked the TELUS Satellite website and I can't find anything relating to minimum contracts required (atleast for Alberta).|

Assuming you can go month-to-month (though it's a valid question even if you can't, but I personally will no longer be interested): Is it possible/legal/ok to get TELUS Sat in Ontario? I'm quite fed up with my $100+ a month bill from Rogers for what I would consider "basic" television service (I'm not going to pay anyone anything if I can't have HD and a PVR and Timeshifting ... I'll just go OTA and hell, even then I can still have a PVR and *some* HD for just the cost of the hardware) and desperately seeking an alternative as they seem to have no interest in giving me any kind of price break in order to keep me as a customer, but I'm not willing to lock in to a contract with all the horrible things I've heard about Bell ... and *C doesn't appear to have rental boxes, so that's no better than being locked in a contract ... worse actually imho.

|starchoice||Does anyone on the board have Telus Satellite TV? I'm curious how they handle customer service issues? Are they exactly the same as Bell such as a 30 day requirement for deleting a channel or bundle?|

Telus Satellite TV comes to Victoria
Check out the "Telus Satellite TV" hyperlink on telus site
Sign a 2-year or 3-year agreement, and they throw-in a dual-tuner HD PVR, i.e., record 2 programs while playing a previously-record program (or while watching 1 of the 2 programs that you're recording).

As you all progress with the Telus offering, keep us informed of how it all goes.
Who knows this could be a trial by Telus and if it works out, they might just take over the entire Bell TV Satellite network......

|barter||Just wondering if you call in for Tech support and programing changes do you get a Bell call center (for example Telus customers dial different #l that goes to bell sat call center and the csr answers "welcome to Telus Satellite") or is Telus handling all this l centre.out of there own call centre|

Not just to save some cash, but most importantly to get away from Bell's horrendous billing practices.

|DIGITALEight||WTF? $5 off for Satellite TV for bundling? Are you sure this isn't a promotion for a few months or something?|
|2009-07-01 10:28 PM|
My Pvr is free as I get a $15 month credit on a three year term,no similar offer with Bell,also with bundling I get $5 off per month,not much but if I run into any trouble I deal with the mother company and not a contractor who wont respond.Six receivers max, pvr or single feed receiver.

|DIGITALEight||I was assuming he would want atleast 1 HD box. That means only 1 SD box.|

IPTV allows you to only have 2 receivers (only 1 PVR out of the 2).
