Enhanced Fibe TV menu and channel guide also launching
MONTREAL, Feb. 2, 2015 /CNW Telbec/ - Bell today announced that it has
begun rolling out a new Fibe TV feature called Restart, enabling
customers to rewind and watch TV shows already in progress from the
beginning. Available for the first time in Canada, Restart supports
thousands of shows from networks including CBC, CTV, Global TV, HBO
Canada, Super Channel, TSN and more.
"Another first from Bell TV, Restart is the latest example of the Fibe
innovation that is taking Canadian television further," said Wade
Oosterman, President of Bell Mobility and Bell Residential Services.
"Bell built Fibe TV for people who love TV. We've invested in
state-of-the-art fibre networks and the best television delivery
technology the world has to offer. With Fibe enabling fresh innovations
like Restart, TV just keeps getting better."
The dynamic and easy-to-use Fibe TV on-screen menu and channel guide has
also been further enhanced with fast access to the main menu from
anywhere in the Fibe TV experience, a larger channel preview window, a
Last Peek feature that shows picture-in-picture for the last 5 channels
tuned, and an improved universal search with poster art results.
The Fibe TV 2.5 software upgrade is being automatically delivered to
customer set top boxes beginning today and will roll out to all Fibe TV
customers by the end of March.
