I had Rogers in Ottawa and recently moved to New Brunswick. Without question Rogers had much better picture quality, frankly it's not even close when compared to what I get from Bell Fibe.

Hockey games, CNN etc all way more crisp, clear and better color than with Bell. Does anyone have any advice?

I have a 65" Samsung 4K TV, 1.5GB internet.

Thanks

Bell Fibe-Rogers Ignite Question

I am currently happy with my Bell Fibe TV and home phone service...but I am paying $105 a month (before taxes) for 50/10 unlimited internet...I can get Rogers 150/10 for $50.00 a month. Called Bell could not get a straight answer on whether it was possible to keep my Bell Hub 3000 for just tv/phone..Loyalty transfers me to technical and then technical says I should talk to loyalty...maybe I should contact billing!
Any advice, guidance would be greatly appreciated.

I'm pretty sure you need to have internet service in order to have Bell Fibe TV. I switched over a few months ago to Rogers Ignite TV and it's fine. TV service is more or less the same at this point but the Bell Fibe App is far superior to the Ignite App. Also, if you want to save on boxes go with Bell as they let you use your own device (Fire Stick or Apple TV) instead of renting their equipment for all your tv's. In theory, with Bell you just need to rent one PVR and the rest of your TV's are free. With Rogers you're stuck ordering for every tv which sucks but I negotiated my equipment rental free. Internet speed is also way faster with Rogers as I got Gigabit for the same price as 50/10.

It is possible to have Fibe tv with no internet but not easy, sometimes Bell is willing to do it sometimes not. Once you switch to Fibe tv service only you will lose all the discounts and will have to pay for equipment rental.
The best way would be to negotiate bundle service. I am paying around $110 a month for all 3 services with the better package. You should be getting similar discount as many of my friend pay about the same as I do.
