Bell Canada is refusing to carry Sun TV. They’re afraid of the competition for their own CTV network, and with good reason. People want to watch Sun TV, and that will cost them viewers.
Their short-sighted and protectionist attitude, however, will be costing them and their resellers, like Telus, a lot of customers.
Shaw carries Sun TV, and is happy to do so. Shaw understands that their customers want the channel. Pretty simple market economics really. It’s kind of surprising that the honchos at Bell don’t comprehend that.
But, in the end it’s their business and their choice to carry whatever channels they want.
It’s also the customer’s choice to choose a service provider that is willing to provide the services we want.
As Ezra rightly says in the video clip below, if you get your television service from Bell or Telus, switch it to Shaw. Switch your internet service while you’re at it.
And if you have a cell phone with Bell… now might be a really good time to give the honchos at Bell a call at 1-888-759-3474 and let them know why you’re canceling your cell phone account with Bell and switching it to someone else.
Vote with your dollars. It’s the only message Bell Canada will hear.
