There are so many variables when it comes to source feeds - and even feeds that specific broadcasters use before passing their own feed off to a BDU - that it would be impossible to know for sure in...

This difference is probably explained by the resolution, in addition to whatever difference in feed or processing that Bell is doing compared to Rogers/Cogeco. It could be worse, I suppose.

But...

There could be several reasons for this. The first one that jumps to my mind is that the source that Bell is obtaining the feed from simply isn't as good as Rogers (or Cogeco, who is probably just...

Your March bill never said it was being removed from Fibe TV ;) I agree that it was kind of stupid for Bell to send out Bell TV-specific notices to Fibe TV customers. But beyond that, the...

Bell TV is not the same thing as Fibe TV. There was absolutely no reference to them ever being removed from Fibe TV. That's why Fibe TV subscribers still have those channels. Unless you're saying...

There was never any official notice that they were being removed from Fibe TV, just Bell TV. Seems entirely unsurprising to me that the channels are still there.

Bell's hardware uses HomePNA over Coax which runs at 4-52MHz. MoCA - assuming it is high-band MoCA, which it would be if you were a cable sub - runs at 850-1500MHz. You should be able to run both...

Yeah, there's no way the neighbourhood would be occupied if the fibre network wasn't ready. Bell uses those same fibre lines to provide landline telephone service with 911. You might need to wait a...

Agreed, a foolish move for sure. Not just for us down here along the Niagara River, but I've also heard that it kills WUTV reception in Hamilton and Burlington.

Yeah, it's a real shame about CHCH. An LP on the Point Abino tower would solve that issue but it would probably never happen. Not even Global was willing to go digital on that transmitter.
