You’ve got your computer, your tablet, maybe even your phone all set up with your favourite streaming services, YouTube, you name it. And somehow… it’s just not enough. Something’s missing. Well, according to your kids (and maybe your partner) at least.
Ah, cable television! Land of your favourite channels. Maybe you’ve been missing out because tablet-on-lap-on-couch viewing is just too darn comfortable, or maybe you’ve been avoiding the whole cable thing altogether. High prices, the overwhelm of too many channel options. We get it. But you miss it. We miss it too.
Well this is some good news: Bell Canada just announced Fibe Alt TV. It’s an app-based service that comes with a basic 30 channel package, you can watch it on pretty much all of your screens from your phone to your TV and it doesn’t eat into your data if you’re watching at home. You can enhance the service with up to 500 channels if you want to (we know you want to watch The Handmaid’s Tale), but it’s $14.95 to start.
Cool, no? What’s more, there’s no one else in Canada offering quite as good a deal. Telus’ PikTV is the closest competition with an offering of 23 basic, mostly Canadian channels plus a choice of five additional specialty, though non-premium, channels for $20/month, if you live in Alberta or British Columbia.
We’re looking forward to quality couch-time snuggles with This Is Us, and especially to no more, “Why can’t we have real TV, Mom?”
