Canada exclusive - Fibe TV Wireless TV Receiver

Bell launches Canada's first wireless TV receiver

Exclusive Fibe TV technology frees your HD television experience from cable
MONTRÉAL, May 27, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Bell today announced the launch of the new Fibe TV Wireless Receiver, a Bell exclusive that enables customers to enjoy the Fibe experience on up to 5 additional TVs anywhere in the home - without the hassle of running cable through the house.
"The new Fibe TV Wireless Receiver is part of Bell's commitment to bring consumers the very best TV viewing experience. Our scale means Bell can access the leading next-generation communications technologies, and that means Canadians will enjoy the best the world has to offer - right here at home," said Wade Oosterman, President of Bell Mobility and Residential Services, and Bell's Chief Brand Officer. "Fibe TV is growing fast thanks to its superior broadband network and features, and the Wireless Receiver takes Fibe even further. Canada's best TV service just got better."
A Wireless Receiver Transmitter connects to a customer's Home Networking modem and works with their main Whole Home PVR to connect 1 or more compact Wireless Receivers to deliver the full Fibe TV experience to as many as 5 additional TVs around the home. Fibe TV Wireless Receivers are available to new and existing Fibe TV clients for rental ($7 per month) or purchase ($199), and include the new award-winning Fibe Remote.
"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," said Shawn Omstead, Vice President of Products for Bell Residential Services. "Wireless TV is just another example of what Fibe can do that cable can't."

  • Apps right on your TV including Facebook, Twitter, TSN Xtra and more
  • The most HD On Demand content (with exclusive reviews and recos from Rotten Tomatoes) and the largest HD recording capacity (up to 100 hours)
