280-284 Boston or 287-291 Seattle depending on your location (east or west).

A quick poll.

I live out west and opted not to pay the extra buck for the extra Eastern feed because earlier show times do not benefit me much. I know... it is only $1 but I am pretty cheap.

I am assuming the most people would have opted for the extra feed for $1, am I right?

I didn't order it but I do have it. I have the total tv combo plus the HD pack so it must come with one of those packages. I must say it's great, I don't think I could go without timeshifting.

I have it too, but I find timeshifting to be more useful in the west than the east. Nothing like watching Leno at 8:35 or 9:35 instead of 11:35.

Think its included with the Hd package.
You are correct. Before today I did not subscribe to any of the networks. After activating my 9200 and adding the HDTV package to my line-up Bell gave me BOTH the HD Networks as well as the normal SD ones in the 280's as part of the $10/mo HDTV package fee.

PVR 9200 the ultimate in time shifting.

That's true grinder, but no PVR in the world can show you something that hasn't aired yet. :D

I didn't pay the extra $1 for the US West feed because it seemed to me that almost all of my timeshifting needs were covered by all the extra CTV & Global feeds I already have... Any thoughts on this?

I agree with Shneebs, most of the timeshifting is covered by the Canadian channels (CTV, Global, etc.). I do get to watch Leno at 9:30pm without the extra US network feeds. I have a PVR and I agree, PVR is the ultimate form of timeshifting. I opted not to pay the $1 because I couldn't figure what I would be missing with timeshifting of the Canadian channels.

Shhhhhhhhh! Instead of charging $1 for the west feeds Bell will soon be charging a "PVR Fee" like other providers are doing..... now we don't want that do we??? ;)

Wait a minute, may be they will charge for a time shifting fee if we watch a channel form a different timezone. :D
