Question - Habs on Bell ExpressVu?

If I subscribe to ExpressVu in Ontario, am I right in assuming I would get the regional CBC channels? So I then should get the Habs games from,say, CBC Halifax or St Johns, no?

Thanks in advance!

If you want all the Habs games, take RDS on Bell Expressvu

Does ExpressVu let you pick individual channels over and above the theme packs? Thanks!

Nevermind, got the answer on the website, (no). RDS is not a pick and pay.

I am using bell expressvu, but RDS comes with the french package that is not cheap.... for me i can't understand french, so those other channels are useless!!

Sorry didn't know Bell forces you to pick the French channels with RDS. It should be in a sports package.

CBC only shows a handful of Montreal games unfortunately.

That's what I did. Still, $7 is better than $25/month for the total sports pack, when 90% of what I watch will be Hab games.

$7 a month isn't that bad but when you add everything up it's a bit too much for me right now.

Centre Ice is definately the way to go. There's usually only two or three Habs games a year that aren't on it. And since the Habs have no English broadcasters, you always get the opposing team's play-by-play guys. Some are really good and some are really bad, but you get a different perspective every game which is good. You also get good insight into the other team.

Problem is it's like $200, but there are ways of getting around that.

Firstly, thanks to everyone who took the time to reply.

Went by a Bell Store today. They have in-store promotions this weekend that are better than the current website promotions.

They will install the basic 3120 for $50 and provide a $30 programming credit (almost free).

The 5120 system is $350 and they add a $50 credit to that. You have to sign on for $40 min. worth of programming for 2 years with either. The 5120 has the PVR (built in hard drive) and rew/ff/pause capability (no commerials!) so this sounds too good to turn down.

Just in case anytone else was interested, no affiliation, etc.
