From Bell back to Rogers


It has been a year since we switched to Bell Satellite and now we’re paying the large Bell.ca contract cancellation fee and going back to Rogers. After a year with Bell TV, we found it was not as much less costly than Rogers than Bell had led us to believe when we signed the two-year contract. Bell TV didn’t give us all the stations we normally watch; with Bell we couldn’t get CKCO or Buffalo PBS channel 17! Mind you, if we pay extra for the Movie package we could get TCM and AMC. Going back to Rogers we get a free PVR as well as saving $28 a month and get CKCO, PBS 17, TCM and AMC plus four extra outlets in the VIP package. The things that bothered us most about Bell TV: losing the signal during an electrical storm (you miss key scenes when that happens); not getting our local CKCO news: not getting PBS Buffalo (the East and West PBS feeds are not the same); not being able to figure out what Bell TV channel matched the listed channel in the newspaper’s TV guide. The satellite dish is also unsightly; unfortunately while Bell sends me a box to return the rented PVR they are not going to remove the satellite dish. Seems to me that dish is re-usable and it is wasteful for Bell to abandon it.

About thebows99krug

Hi, I am Eric, a retired librarian. I was born in St. Michael's Hospital, Toronto and raised in the downtown area north of the Art Gallery, south of the University of Toronto. I went to Orde Street Public School, Harbord C.I., University College at the UofT and the UofT's Faculty of Library and Information Science. I meet my wife Patricia at FLIS; our first date was on November 15, 1968. We were engaged February 14, 1969 and married on June 21, 1969. Our family includes son, James; daughter-in-law, Erin; (both writers), grand-daughters, Vivian and Eleanor; and Pooka, a small but fierce gray tabby. I would like to hear from any other class of '63 alumni of Harbord C.I. and class of '67 alumni of UofT's University College.
