Didn't they have this before? Well at least in New Brunswick, before they all merged, NBTel had VibeVision. It was pretty cool for the time, but they eventually cut it off I think about 2001.

Had this in parts of St. John's before too. Scrapped it during the Aliant merge again.

Why is Bell behind in this? So strange.

Their satellites are running out of bandwidth quick. Since their equipments are MPEG 2 compliant ONLY, they cannot move to MPEG 4 format without huge costs (ie. replacing everyone's receivers). Try launching more new channels... and bam... degraded quality.

Bell's quality has gone down the hole in the last few years and the prices have gone up. They can't seem to settle on a pricing structure either. It's sad when you can download videos off the internet that are cleaner and a lot more crisp. IP Television sounds awesome. I'd trade my tv bandwidth for more of that 10mbit pipe.
