What is Bell MTS Pay-Per-View

Bell MTS Pay-Per-View (PPV) events give you front-row seating to some of the best live TV events without having to leave the comfort of your couch. The Pay-Per-View feature allows you to purchase live events such as mixed martial arts, wrestling, hockey and other special events from the Program Guide or while watching a channel in full screen.

Tips:

  • After renting a PPV event you must wait until its scheduled time before you can watch it.
  • You can record the event at its scheduled time and watch it whenever you want after that.
  • You are charged for a rented PPV event even if you do not watch it.
Rent a Bell MTS Pay-Per-View Event

PPV events appear as channel 802 and High Definition events as channel 1801 in the Guide.

  1. Press GUIDE on your remote control.

    Note:

    Record Episode only appears if you have PVR service and a PVR enabled set-top box.

  7. Highlight Record Episode and press OK. A red dot indicates the PPV event is scheduled to record. Recording begins immediately if the event is currently playing. When the scheduled recording actually begins, the RECORDING light on your set-top box lights up and remains on while the PPV event is recording. You can record the event until its scheduled end, or you can add padding time after the end to ensure the whole event records if it runs longer than expected.

Tips:

  • If the event is locked by rental locking, you are prompted to enter your rental PIN before you can rent the event.
  • Tuning to the event after it starts allows you to view and record from that point forward. You cannot rewind to the beginning.
