Hey just wondering if anyone has herd something on if or when Fiber Op HD quality will be improved... i presently have both Aliant and rogers TV service but i have had to remove everything but basic service off Aliant and switch rogers to my main as compared to rogers HD especially on sports it is pretty bad... i mean i only have rogers for the few channels Aliant doesn't have plus you get Aliant TV dirt cheap in the bundle so i wanted to drop rogers and just get those shows off the net (Netflix ect.) but just can't justify it at the moment as on my 55" Phillips Aliant looks pretty bad... anyone got any info?

Ensure you are using component vid cables for your tv connection to the bell aliant set top box.
The hdmi is not supported at this time.
as for your audio, use the red and white as dolby dig 5.1 is not supported either at this present time.

It will be late summer (maybe) before this service hits my town. But HD tv without HDMI or true 5.1 sound seems like going backwards as opposed to enhancing my viewing experience.
Hi Phil

Can you share the pricing as based on a call I just made for bundle pricing here there's no real deal. the $99 is only for 3 months and does not include HD.
It would cost me alot more money to get anything close to what I currently have with Eastlink.
how did you manage to switch- i thought Alaint makes you sign a one year contract ??
Action shots & Sports


My viewing pleasure is primaririly sports. Therefore the quality is important. I'm seriously considering making the move from BEV to this new service. But frankly you guys are scaring me. it seems to me that the majority on here are having quality issues on action TV (ie sports etc).

I assume those having problems have actually called and complained. I'm curious how they reacted. There is also of investment here and alot on the line. as noted in an earlier post-they want to get it right. so i'm curious how your complaints were dealt with.

I'm holding off for now until this issue is resolved.
