Bell Canada continues to expand its winning lineup of High Definition TV offerings by announcing today the launch of four new French channels on its ExpressVu digital TV service. The new channels will bring viewers the best in French films, documentaries and unique TV programming.

"ExpressVu digital TV from Bell just keeps getting better, with our focus on delivering a superior TV experience that combines the ultimate choice in programming with leading technology," said Pat Button, VP Marketing, Bell ExpressVu. "Bell today extends its commitment to bring customers the most HD channels, the most HD programming hours, and the highest-quality HD signal.

And we're sure that this latest expansion of service is going to be a hit with French viewers everywhere." The new French HDTV channels from Bell ExpressVu are Canal D HD, Séries+ HD, Super Ecran HD and Canal Vie HD.

With an estimated three quarters of a million Canadian households already tuning in to the cinematic realism of HD programs, and with sales of HD-ready TV sets continuing to climb, Canadians can't seem to get enough of the HD experience.

"HD television, with its brilliant, high-resolution images and theatre-quality sound, is giving Canadians a new viewing experience that is richer, deeper and more visually captivating than standard TV," said Nicolas Gaudreau, Vice President, Quebec Marketing and Integrated Markets. Making the move to HD has never been easier today thanks to Bell ExpressVu's next generation All-In-One digital TV service, a great new way for consumers to enjoy easy access to an entire universe of cutting-edge content.
