Today, Bell Canada announced that it will be offering Fibe TV as a standalone service starting early next year.
Currently, Bell customers are required to signup for the company’s Fibe Internet plan in order to be eligible to sign up for Fibe TV. The company will offer separate signups for Fibe TV by the end of Q1 2017. The change comes alongside the continuing expansion of its TV services across Eastern Canada.
In a statement, Bell Group President and Chief Brand Officer Wade Oosterman said:
“As we align our next-generation IPTV technologies, we’re bringing exclusive Fibe features to Atlantic Canada and new options for Fibe TV customers in Ontario and Québec. Fibe has become the country’s most popular television service because of the constant stream of new content and feature innovations we’re bringing to Canadian TV viewers. With these latest enhancements, we’re making it even easier for consumers to experience all that Fibe can do.”
Bell also said that Aliant’s FibreOP TV in Atlantic Canada is being integrated with the Fibe TV to bring more 4K, HD and on-demand content to customers. The company will invest another $1 billion this year to bring Fibe to homes and businesses in Eastern Canada.
