Bell Launches Canada's First Wireless TV Receiver

Exclusive Fibe TV technology frees your HD television experience from cable

MONTRÉAL, May 27, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Bell today announced the launch of the new Fibe TV Wireless Receiver, a Bell exclusive that enables customers to enjoy the Fibe experience on up to 5 additional TVs anywhere in the home - without the hassle of running cable through the house.

"The new Fibe TV Wireless Receiver is part of Bell's commitment to bring consumers the very best TV viewing experience. Our scale means Bell can access the leading next-generation communications technologies, and that means Canadians will enjoy the best the world has to offer - right here at home," said Wade Oosterman, President of Bell Mobility and Residential Services, and Bell's Chief Brand Officer. "Fibe TV is growing fast thanks to its superior broadband network and features, and the Wireless Receiver takes Fibe even further. Canada's best TV service just got better."

A Wireless Receiver Transmitter connects to a customer's Home Networking modem and works with their main Whole Home PVR to connect 1 or more compact Wireless Receivers to deliver the full Fibe TV experience to as many as 5 additional TVs around the home. Fibe TV Wireless Receivers are available to new and existing Fibe TV clients for rental ( $7 per month) or purchase ($199), and include the new award-winning Fibe Remote.

"Going wireless means you can watch HD TV anywhere you want in your home -- without the hassle of running more cable across floors or through the walls of your house. All you need is a power outlet," said Shawn Omstead, Vice President of Products for Bell Residential Services. "Wireless TV is just another example of what Fibe can do that cable can't."

Please visit Bell.ca/WirelessTV to learn more, or visit a Bell store or The Source location to order your Fibe TV Wireless Receiver. To confirm Fibe TV is available for your home, please visit Bell.ca/FibeTV.

The best TV service out there Fibe TV is the next generation of television, bringing innovative new choices to consumers and a competitive challenge to the established cable TV companies. Bell does what cable can't, with a range of advanced features including:

  • Apps right on your TV including Facebook, Twitter, TSN Xtra and more
  • The most HD On Demand content (with exclusive reviews and recos from Rotten Tomatoes) and the largest HD recording capacity (up to 100 hours)
  • The best on-screen guide available, with picture-in-picture and extensive search options
  • The ability to set, play back and manage recordings on up to 6 TVs, pause and rewind live TV on every TV, and record 4 shows at once with just one PVR.

Fast-growing Fibe TV Fibe TV is now available across Montréal, Québec City and Toronto, with multiple new locations being added in 2013, including Aurora, Barrie, Hamilton, Markham, Milton, Newmarket, Ottawa, Richmond Hill, Stoney Creek and Vaughan in Ontario, and Laval and South Shore and North Shore Montréal in Québec. Available to more than 3.3 million households now, Fibe TV will be accessible to a million more by the end of the year.

Fibe TV gained 47,463 new customers in the first quarter of 2013, a 41.9% increase over 2012 and more net new subscribers in Q1 than any other TV service - in fact, Bell's major cable competitors had a net loss of customers in the same time frame. Bell now has at least 295,761 Fibe TV subscribers, 147% more than at the end of Q1 last year.
