Bell Canada offers wireless IPTV
« on: January 22, 2015, 08:01 am »
Canadian telco Bell has introduced new wireless receivers for its IPTV service ‘Fibe TV’, along with a wireless transmitter that can support up to five wireless IPTV receivers.
The new wireless receivers are available for rental at CAD 7 (US$ 7) per month, or can be purchased outright for CAD 199. The Fibe TV wireless transmitter connects to the home modem and works with a user’s Whole Home PVR.
Shawn Omstead, vice president of products for Bell Residential Services, said: “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. Wireless TV is just another example of what Fibe can do that cable can’t.”

There is definitely a nice advantage in stepping up their game in wireless. Its a good marketing move and gives users more option

No way! I wonder what the quality is on this. Has anyone gotten one of these yet? How well do they work? Or is the network still in its infancy? Sometimes it's better to wait and jump on later when it's better established and less buggy...
