[TV] CNN HD

Hi there,

I heard a couple of weeks ago that the CRTC ruled that people could subscribe by channel only without the need to take a whole package. Does Bell apply this now? I just want to add CNN HD ...but I do not want the other channels with the package.

Is it possible? Thank you

Unfortunately CNN is not available one by one for the moment, it is included in The Favorites, Top Bilingual, Top Anglo.

You will be able to order single channels sometime in the next 5 years.

There are still some exceptions. For example, Speed Channel owners (Fox) disallow the channel to be offered à la carte, so you are forced to pick a sports package to get the channel. Have to respect the broadcaster's wishes, even if they're stupid.

But since CNN can be chosen à la carte on Vidéotron, you can blame Bhell for not allowing you pick it up à la carte.
