According to Bell’s website, “Price adjustments support our continued investments in network, product and service enhancements.” The company informs customers to visit (nice URL) to learn more about how these price hikes will allow Bell to be “better at bringing you more.”

Back in late 2015, Bell notified customers CraveTV would see a 50% price hike, moving from $4 per month to $6 per month. Nearly two years later, customers will see the price jump to $8 per month, as of October 1, 2017, double the original launch rate.

Other recent price changes by Bell, include increasing the price of data overages for new wireless customers to $7 per 100MB, or $70 for 1GB (Rogers similarly did the same).

So if you can’t stop/won’t stop watching CraveTV/Fibe TV/Satellite TV, get ready for some price increases, folks.

    …And the Competition Bureau and CRTC still allow cable providers to hike prices while under a contract with a subscriber – such actions do not make said contract null and void and up for renegotiation (that’s Contract Law 101) – and the subscriber is is stuck on the hook for the remainder of the original contract or must pay a fee to ‘break’ it. I live in hope of eventually a Class Action Suit – and that makes it retroactive…

    It is a poorly written article. This price increase is for Bell customers who purchase Crave through their Bell cable subscription. People who purchased directly from the Crave site were already paying this.
