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.

Consider to switch to TekSavvy cable.

My advice, switch to TekSavvy cable for the internet. Takes about 5 minutes
and no equipement changes on your part. Still uses the Rogers cable to backhaul to the TekSavvy fiver node. The only differences you will notice is 200 GB download, no throttle, lower price, less rate increases, less if any lowering of caps and better customer service. And no I do not work for them,
just in the same boat and got sick of Robbers also.
Maybe one detail

Sorry one detail that might get in your way (isn't there always something)
is I think Bell may force you to take the Fibe 6 internet as part of the TV package. Best to check with them.
There was metion on the TekSavvy site a while back (if i read it right) of them getting a lot of new equipement to someday resell Fibe TV. They now resell Bell DSL. Gives some hope for the future but unfortunately won't help you at the momement. Best of luck.
