The satellite receiver uses a phone line for certain functions (call display on tv and ordering pay per view). Can I use second jack on Koodo Home phone gadget to plug in TV Satellite receiver. Will Satellite work with cell instead of landline?
Shaw Direct satellite does not require an on-line phone connection to order pay-per-view or stream online. Of course, you won't have on-screen call display.
You can order the home phone service with a temporary number and try it out. If it works, port your regular number over. Otherwise, return it during the grace period. The phone rates are nothing to sneeze at. If some minor features with Bell don 't work, you can then judge the trade-off for yourself.
