That's not easy to picture. I don't understand why they cannot service your house from the first pole and avoid crossing the neighbor's property twice.
A lot of Bell sales people are not Bell employees. They are hired by an independent company and use an outdated Bell brand name to identify themselves. My experience with these salespeople is that they are sometimes less than reputable. Double check anything they say down to the last detail. That includes actual products. I've had "Bell" salespeople misrepresent DSL and satellite TV as Fibe products and exaggerate available internet speeds by up to 20 times what is actually available. Also check prices. My experience is that the prices given are no better or may be higher than those available directly from Bell. Check the Bell web site for offers. There is also information there on what services and programming are available on third party devices. The Apple TV 4K seems to be the product that is best supported by Bell. It's pricey but probably worth it.Told by Bell salesman that...
That depends on the model. They all do HD. Some do 4K. There won't be a lot of 4K material and a lot of TVs are not 4K either so choose the model best suited for your TV. The 4K model is on sale right now. It might be worth getting that to provide some future proofing and to take advantage of the newer 4K chip which might look better on a good non-4K HDTV.will I loose any quality in using firestick ?
They are widely available. Do a search for "ethernet over coax converter." The ones that support MoCA 2.0 are the best bet. A good unit that supports 1Gb speeds will cost $100+ per end. Others may be cheaper but significantly slower.What would be required to use the existing RG6 cable?
In other words, Bell will only activate receivers that they themselves sold. They will not activate receivers from other broadcast distributors (BDUs) or receivers purchased directly from the manufacturer. That's true of most Canadian BDUs. Even though two companies might use identical equipment (for example Bell and Telus or Rogers and Shaw) they will not activate the other company's equipment on their system even if the consumer owns it.Bell can only activate receivers that are in their database of serial numbers.
That depends on the available services in the area, but generally the answer is no or at least not all supported. The ability to manage recordings is missing from most cable system services due to a copyright infringement lawsuit by TiVo. The ability to watch live channels remotely is often available on other services but may be more limited. Watching PVR recording remotely is more limited or not available on most other systems. Some systems don't even allow viewing of PVR recordings in the same household or may be unreliable.My question is: are these capabilities unique to Bell's offering or are there other service providers that offer these features that anyone knows of?
Rogers has the same issue with their digital TV. The bottom line is, different manufacturer, different hardware, different software, maybe even a different guide service. Despite the high cost, proprietary hardware from TV services is usually poorly designed, usually obsolete and are often barely capable do the job they were designed for due to the use of inadequate hardware, and poor software development and support. The only proprietary TV service hardware I've ever used that I considered adequate for the job were the Bell 92xx line of receivers and that was only after the maker undertook a concerted effort the fix all the bugs, which took about 5 years.Why are the IPGs and other displays used by the Fibe TV app (or Fibe tv on my computer) and the STB different?
