Im thinking of ditching bell tv after 5 years. Love the service, prices are good but sick of satellite tv losing signal in bad storms. The new Fibe tv service is available in my area.I currently have the fibe25 internet. Ive read that its a max of 4 set top box's. My question is i have 5 tvs. I want to change to fibe tv and i obviously want to watch my 5 tv's so i need 5 set tops. The most set top box's that will ever be on at once is 4 ( 3 sd and 1 hd). Now is it possible to get a 5 box install in this case? the 5 tvs will NEVER all be used at once. Unfortunately this is a deal breaker for me.. I need the 5 tvs or ill have to either settle for bell tv or make the swap back to robbers. I'd call be all ask but i already know ill call 5 times n get 5 different answers so i always come here first :cool:

Thanks in advanced folks.

Moving to Fibe TV from Bell TV

I'm considering the jump from satellite (BellTV) to Fibe TV for obvious reasons: no signal loss during storms, the ability to watch PVRed content on separate TVs,... I looked (quickly) through the forums but still have some questions:

1. Has anyone else done this? Any issues switching from a BellTV plan to Fibe TV?

2. Is the picture quality comparable?

3. Does the new FibeTV menu act much like the BellTV menu (multiple guides which you can create, proper Search function,…)?

4. Is there a skip commercial button (30 secs forward and 10 secs back)?

5. If I PVR an HD program, I suspect I couldn't watch this program back on an SD set.

6. From what I've read in these forums, they suggest you get the Fibe6 internet package instead of the Fibe12 because FibeTV bumps your download speed up. Is this true?

7. Lastly, I know this is for a different forum but I expect anyone reading also has experience with Bell's Fibe internet. How is it? One of the reasons I left Sympatico HSE was that it wasn't reliable or fast. I've had no problems with Rogers hi-speed for the past year, but I could save $$ by switching and bundling. Is Fibe internet reliable?
