BellTV Channel Discussion Thread
 
This thread will be for rumours, channel deletions and complaining about any channel not offered by BellTV.

Actual confirmed new channel announcements and channel deletions will now have their own thread.

Does Bell TV not have the Weather Channel in HD yet?

I see other carriers do.

No, they don't.

If you have a 6400 HD Bell Receiver you can't even get your local weather overlay on The Weather Network.

Bell removed the "Interactive" features on all new receiver models I believe.

Is there a high demand for this? I know for me weather is a tablet, phone, PC thing not a TV thing.

I am all for HD channels and weather information, but don't see TV as the means for this moving forward.

Unless it was a part of the receiver OS that could be activated.

Just don't feel the demand is high for this (anymore).

Would be nice if they would get CNN International in HD.

Has anybody heard through the grapevine how Bell will be rolling out Crave TV on Satellite?
Will there be special channel selection?

Here's a quote from a Bell Media press release that I posted in the CraveTV thread.

The streaming will actually be done over the internet, not satellite.

I would guess that they would have a video-on-demand interface that would allow you to choose the show that you want to watch.

Does anyone have info on the WWE Network being added to Bell Satellite?

The video on demand is currently in Beta testing and will only be available on 9241 and 9400 model receivers. It is not Crave TV content. It is movie network on demand, Global TV on demand, History channel on demand, etc. To make the video on demand work, you need to have your receiver connected to the internet, be part of the Beta testing at this time.

joshwild, since Bell has already announced that CraveTV will be available on some STBs, I suspect they will use the same interface as the other On Demand services.

CraveTV™ for Satellite
 
the following message is available on Bell's website:

Fibe TV customers
You can access CraveTV™ content on your TV with the On Demand service, on your smartphones and tablets with the Bell TV and CraveTV™ apps as well as on your computer.

Satellite TV customers
You can only access CraveTV™ on your smartphones and tablets with the Bell TV and CraveTV™ apps as well as on your computer.


therefore,it seems like it won't be available on Satellite TV.at least not soon..

tony4256, Bell already said in a Press Release that "CraveTV will also be offered on select Bell Satellite TV set-top boxes in early 2015."

The best place stay up-to-date with CraveTV is our CraveTV thread:

Here is a post that has been put up on various sites relating to the WWE Network and Bell:

The WWE Network deal that Rogers finalized with Bell Canada officially starts on January 15th, and is expected to increase subscriptions for the digital service as Bell customers have reportedly requested the WWE Network in droves.

Anyone else hear anything about this?
