VMedia takes a body blow from Bell

Postby kal » Wed Nov 23, 2016 10:19 am

*VMedia takes a hit in Canadian court.*

Bell prevails over the upstart Canadian media delivery company which grabs over-the-air content and repackages it in a discounted "skinny" TV package accessed via the Roku platform. And the court assigns Bell's costs, $150,000, to VMedia.

Ouch! That really hurts, as vMedia had been my planned provider of choice once the Wholesale ruling by the CRTC on Internet rates started showing up in lower third party pricing by vMedia and its competitors.

The fact that they could also provide cable TV brought them to the top of my list.
