Tuesday 16 May 2017 | 08:44 CET | News
Bell launched Fibe Alt TV, an app-based live TV service that includes live and on-demand television. With no traditional TV subscription or set-top box required, Alt TV is accessed through FibeTV app and offers up to 500 channels on a laptop, tablet, smartphone or TV. Alt TV starts at CAD 14.95 per month.

Initially available to qualifying Bell Fibe Internet customers in Ontario and Quebec, and coming to Atlantic Canada and Manitoba, Alt TV offers access to up to 500 live and on-demand channels, more than any comparable service in the world.

Available with selected Fibe Internet packages and starting at CAD 14.95 per month for more than 30 channels, including the major Canadian and US networks, Alt TV offers access to 2 TV streams at a time and customers can add individual channels to build their own Alt TV packages. Consumers don't need to worry about data usage or fees when viewing Alt TV at home. Like Bell's Fibe TV service, Alt TV operates as a licensed broadcast service on the privately managed Bell Fibe broadband network for in-home viewing, and on mobile or Wi-Fi networks outside the home. Alt TV is accessed through the Fibe TV app, which offers automatic in-home authentication and lets customers search the full range of Alt TV programming, see the top trending shows live, and continue watching on-demand content previously started. The service is now available on laptops, smartphones, tablets and Apple TV 4thGeneration, and will be available on Android TV later in 2017.
