“Now, our subscribers can keep up with can’t miss programming, anywhere in Canada wherever a high-speed connection is available.” said Domenic Vivolo of Astral Television Networks

The shows will be available at no additional cost for Bell TV customers who subscribe to The Movie Network and have a valid online Bell logon id.

The direct-to-home (DTH) television providers says the addition of HBO programming to its online portal means the portal now offers about 300 hours of content per week, with 25 per cent of the content refreshed weekly.
