    So Global Quebec is finally being added? Any idea what channel? I'm assuming it will be in the 200s...several posts on Digital Home list it being on channel 234, but not sure if that's offcial.

    After all these years Global Quebec finally get's on Bell. It's a shame they didn't add them back when they had the popular Morning Live though.

    Okay, so Channel 234 is now up and running, and is listed in electronic program guide as GLB-Q (Global Quebec).

    I've tuned in but the feed is coming from Global Ontario. During commercial breaks, I even see community updates related to the GTA.

    Also, the listings are not updated beyond 90 minutes - all it shows is "Info Not Available". Does this mean perhaps they'll only switch to the Global Quebec feed during the local evening newscasts?

    New Channels for Bell

    Has Bell gone mad, or is there some reason why they have chosen to move some of their HD offerings to the 1000 level, and above? What reason can they have to make this move, unless it is because they have 200 additional channels to give us!

    Bell TV has added Télétoon Rétro (channel 186) to its lineup. The channel will be free to those in Quebec and free to those in the rest of Canada who subscribe to the French Networks package.

    Canada lacks in HD. If you agree post this in your signature.

    Maybe because they need more space They can't fit all HD channels in the 800's anymore with radio in the 900's and adults/ethnics in the 700's. They need a new home.

    The only smart thing to do is break them up into packages 1000's being canadian networks, 1200's being american networks, 1400's sports and so on.... what's the big deal? It's an extra number to push on your remote.

    I wish HD and SD would switch positions in the guide, but obviously that's not going to happen.

    A little while ago, it got overlooked so I'll add it now, Bell added RT- channel 724(English news channel from Russia) and NDTV Imagine- channel 726 (a Canadian version of the Hindi channel from India) to it's lineup.

    Did you hear it from Bell? From my experience, good luck trying to get an answer on anything from their useless customer service. It's one thing to phone them and talk to someone who is hopelessly uninformed and under-trained, but it's a joke to ask them a short yes or no question by e-mail, and receive a rambling and completely pointless three paragraph reponse that does not address the question. Since they have a couple of days to reply, can't they even try to find the answer from someone else in the company who would know?
