Bell Mobile TV Welcomes One Millionth Subscriber

  • Live sports and other big TV events driving twice as much data usage as a year ago
  • Access to more than 40 mobile channels on the go - and more than 100 if you're also a Bell TV customer

MONTREAL, Sept. 17, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Bell today welcomed its one millionth subscriber to Bell Mobile TV, the breakthrough wireless data service that offers on-the-go access to more than 40 channels of live and on-demand sports, news, entertainment and children's TV programming.

"Bell invited consumers to pick a screen and fill it with goodness - and a million Canadians have now done so with Bell Mobile TV on their smartphones and tablets," said Wade Oosterman, President of Bell Mobility. "Bell has made the heavy investments in high-speed data networks, high-demand programming, and TV-capable mobile devices that let consumers take TV anywhere. We're proud to have staked out an international leadership position for Canada in the fast-growth mobile TV sector."

Bell Mobile TV offers unparalleled variety in programming from major Canadian and international content providers. Much of the service's growth has been led by viewing of major live sporting events such as the NHL Playoffs and Stanley Cup, the Super Bowl, NBA Playoffs, NCAA March Madness, and the Olympic Games.

"Live broadcasts are a key driver for mobile TV, led by Canada's and the world's biggest sporting events but also the major awards shows, TV season finales and special events like the Toronto International Film Festival that people want to watch wherever they may be," said Mr. Oosterman. "Bell Mobile TV is uniquely easy to access too - Bell enables customers to watch mobile TV without impacting their regular data usage."

Mobile TV is available as a bonus with many Bell Mobility data plans and any Bell customer with a smartphone and a data plan can get 10 hours of mobile TV viewing as a $5 a month add-on, without affecting the data allotment in their plan. For more details, please visit Bell.ca/MobileTV.

News, sports, entertainment and children's programming available on Bell Mobile TV includes ATN (CBN, Cricket Plus, MH1, NDTV, Times Now, Zoom), BNN - Business News Network, BBC World News, Bloomberg, CBC, CBC News Network, City, Comedy Network, Comedy Time, CTV, CTV News Channel, CTV Two, Juicebox, MTV, NBA TV, NFL Network, NFL Redzone, NHL Centre Ice, RDI, RDS, RDS2, Sportsnet East / One / Ontario / Pacific / West, SRC, Treehouse, TSN, TSN2, TVA, V Montreal, Vancouver Whitecaps FC and YTV.

Integration of mobile content into the recently launched Bell TV anywhere app ( Bell.ca/TVAnywhere) also enables Bell TV customers access to these and 70 more live and on-demand channels on their tablets and smartphones.

Backed by world-leading wireless and wireline broadband networks, Bell has become Canada's content delivery leader, offering customers access to the best programming on the screen of their choice - smartphone, tablet, TV or laptop. Alongside other innovative content services such as Bell TV Online ( Bell.ca/TVOnline and Bell Fibe TV Bell.ca/FibeTV), Bell Mobile TV offers Bell subscribers the cross-platform flexibility to watch their favourite shows when and how they choose.
