With the success of Telus Optik, and what appears to be Shaw's response in the form of a new system coming in Q1-2011, with similar multi-room, multi-device functionality, does anybody know what Novus has planned, if anything?

They seem to emulate Shaw's system, but their network would be a perfect fit for IPTV like Telus Optik.

My current TV/Internet/Phone bundle from Novus is impossible to beat, but I'm looking at approx $130/mnth for Optik vs the $105 I pay now with Novus, and it's tempting given the extra features (especially if I can get 3 HD feeds).

I am making the jump to Telus, already bought the HW, just waiting to watch the stuff on my PVR.

The intro pricing will be cheaper, and I'm going to hang on to the Novus HW (former Shaw HW so I can even re-activate with them) and just play them off against each other... although I can't see going back to Shaw or Novus unless they make big changes. And with Shaw that's likely to mean $500+ HW...

When my 6 month promo pricing is up, I'll go with whoever will give me the best deal. Although I have to say, so far I really like the Telus system. Anyroom PVR and 3 HD streams at once can't be beat.
