I have been using Bell Fibe now for over a month. Everything is working fine so far but I do have a couple gripes. The Bell tv does indeed have a more superior pvr but not everything is perfect. One thing I just realized is that the Galaxie music channels do not list the name of the artist and song unlike Rogers which does. Listening to the 80s channel, which is probably the best era for music, there were a few artists that I forgot and wanted to know the name of. I guess you would have to check it out on the Galaxie website which seems like a lot of work. I was listening to the 90s channel and what a difference. The 80s is so much more superior.
The second gripe I have is the favourites channel list. Because I have basic cable, it was suggested to favourite all the channels I have access to so that it isn’t so daunting when I am looking at the channel guide and there are over 1000 channels. The only thing is you have to manually do this for every tv receiver in your house. This takes a good 15 minutes and is too much work for what it is worth especially if you have 3 receivers.
I did notice that there is a 6 month promotion for The Movie Network at half price on Bell tv. This is spring time now and the promotion ends at the end of the year. I will probably sign up in the fall when I will be indoors more.
It appears Bell is trying hard to win over customers with their numerous commercials and promotions. I swore I would never go back so they better prove me wrong. I am waiting for my second bill. I hope it is properly invoiced. I have already had to call in once since they were charging me for the free pvr.
