Bell TV

Bell TV (French: Bell Télé), formerly known as Bell ExpressVu, Dish Network Canada and ExpressVu Dish Network (and now sometimes known as Bell Satellite TV to distinguish the service from Bell's IPTV-based Fibe TV service), is the division of Bell Canada that provides satellite television service across Canada. It launched on September 10, 1997 and as of 2004 it has been providing "Bell TV for Condos", a VDSL service provided to select multidwelling units (condominiums and apartments) in Montreal, Ottawa and Toronto. Bell TV provides over 500 digital video and 100 HD and audio channels to, as of May 2010, over 1.8 million subscribers. Its major competitors include satellite service Shaw Direct, as well as various cable and communications companies across Canada, such as Rogers Communications, Eastlink, Shaw Communications, Telus and Vidéotron.

Bell TV services are also repackaged and resold by Telus as Telus Satellite TV, in areas where the latter company's IPTV services are unavailable.

Famous quotes containing the word bell:

    In 1862 the congregation of the church forwarded the church bell to General Beauregard to be melted into cannon, “hoping that its gentle tones, that have so often called us to the House of God, may be transmuted into war’s resounding rhyme to repel the ruthless invader from the beautiful land God, in his goodness, has given us.”
