In the information section of its Electronic Program Guide Bell Satellite TV (BSTV) is telling customers that, effective December 7th, it will no longer offer HDNet.

Bell has not given any reason for dropping the popular high definition channel, however, HDNet representatives tell Digital Home readers the decision came after Bell told the station that it would be moving HDNet to a less desirable theme pack, a move the station did not want.

The U.S. general interest television channel which has been broadcasting exclusively in high-definition since 2001 is still available in Canada on Bell's major competitors such as Rogers Cable and Shaw Direct.
