That's normal, they reduce the base price of the Gigabit Fibe if you are on a bundle. I have the same thing for my bundle as well.
Thanks Guys,
My other question is what PVR did you get with $99 Gigabit/Better Tv/Home phone bundle?
The rep is saying can only give me HD PVR, but in website with Better TV you get 4K PVR, rep says if I want to get 4K PVR I have to pay $5 more
My installation date is next week. should I push for more?

The website also says that you should pay around $200 for the same package.

I don't know the specifics of your plan, but I was able to get a 4K PVR included for free, as well as a wireless receiver free for one year.
It usually helps if the rep doesn't want to give it to you, to just finish the call and call pending orders a while later, they've been always able to add it for me.

Some reps can go around that, others can't, you can see this even on the OP. If your rep can't do it, I would leave it alone. When too many people tamper with your order that's where trouble begins heh

What does the Cantonese combo include? If it is what I am thinking of, the Fairchild TV 1 and 2 combo, that combo should already include the Talentvision channel.
The combo includes 705, 710, 717 and the Talentvision is 719.

You can get what ever Chinese channel you want for $15. (4 Channels)
That is the Combo.
(Go to Bell TV website, click International (Tab, under "Enhance your package with extra channels and add-ons."), Click Chinese. You will see what channel you can pick.
Are you sure about this? right now the chinese combo has channels 705, 710 and 717. I only need 710 and 717. I got an extra channel for $7 for 719. Ideally, if i can get 710, 717 and 719 in a combo that way I can save $7 that would be awesome but i don't see away to do it. I went online and I can't add or remove channels in the combo. it looks fixed.

It is not fixed. Call retention and let them know that you want 4 international channels for 15/mth and the Cantonese combo and extra channel removed. Then add the 4 that you want and that is it.

I just called and they said that the cantonese combo is a set package and I can't package that in the 4 channels for $15 deal. the Talentvision channel I can package but I can't get those other channels outside of the Cantonese combo. Does that sound right?

No. Cantonese package no longer exists, it has been grandfathered. (Take a look at bell.ca). Just call them, say that you wish to remove your cantonese package and add the international 4 channel addon instead. Give them your 4 channels and that is it.

Not sure about the specifics of the situation, but I can confirm that it DOES exist.
That's the package that I currently have added to my plan.

It does not. http://www.bell.ca/Fibe-TV/Fibe-Program ... -container

There is a Mandarin combo, but Cantonese one has been discontinued. The new format is 4 channels for $15/mth

I just went the my account on bell.ca and tried removing the package then adding it on separately. It didn't work. Channels 717 and 719 work fine
but when I try to add 705 or 710, my options are:
$0.00
$15.00 - Cantonese Package
$30.00 - Mandarin Package

So I wasn't actually able to add it separately. I'll try calling retention tomorrow but based on what I see on the site, I don't think it's possible. I see what you're saying in the link you sent, it shows a Mandarin combo for $30.00 then a bunch of Chinese channels, but in the list of chinese channels there's a Fairchild channel for$15.00. This is the package i still have.
