You could always ask to talk to their customer loyalty team and request a lower rate. It will bring your monthly bill down without having to go to one of the new packages. The last time I asked, the discount was maybe $20/month, but watch your bill for the expiry date since you have to call back every year and request a new discount.Time to re-do channel packages as my grandfathered package has ballooned to stupid pricing.
I have been looking at the alternatives. At this link, the 'MEDIUM' package lists 162 BASE channels - but when you open up the requester, I only count 81. Am I missing the fact that they are including 30 CBC, CTV and GLOBAL feeds, etc.?
The ** asterisk showing when viewing the 'BASE' channels notes 'Not all channels available in all provinces' - is there a link/page to see exactly WHAT channels are for Ontario viewers, or do I have to grin and bear a phone call....
My grandfathered package is comparable with the new packages if I look at what channels are included. What I don't like about the new packages is that many channels that were once standards (like Vision TV) are now addons that you have to buy for $5 each.
