Satellite TV can give you the choice you want at a reasonable price.
Ontario: it’s the land of Niagara Falls, beaches on the Great Lakes, high-priced cell phone contracts and lots of TV.
And when it comes to your viewing pleasure, we all know it’s about having choice. You’re not going to watch all those channels every month, but having them on-hand when you want them is what paying for great satellite service is all about.
Here are 4 of the best satellite TV packages now available in Ontario:
1) Shaw Direct TV $41/month limited time offer, $111 regularly
Shaw has many satellite TV packages available to those who live in Ontario. If you want to go all out, consider the Ultimate Choice package. Right now enjoy $70 off each month on a wide variety of HD channels, sports, theme packs, classic movies, local and international news and specialty programming.

2) Bell $100/month for 1 year, $116.95 regularly
Get Bell’s ‘Best’ package for about $15 off each month right now. What does it give you? The best value per channel and “All the channels in Better, plus practically every single specialty channel we offer – the ultimate TV lover package”.
If you get this satellite service as part of an eligible bundle from Bell, your HD PVR rental will be included.
3) Vmedia $27.00/month introductory offer, $44.95/month after 3 months
VMedia is certainly not as established as Bell or Shaw, but if you’re looking for an alternative provider it could be worth a glance. It’s definitely cheaper. You don’t get as many channels as you do with the other brand names but maybe you’re not going to be watching the latest gardening show or fishing update and it might not matter.
