TV service went out about 0230 June 14th. Maybe due to bad weather but most likely due to Bell now being in charge. Tried calling....45 minute wait. Tried chatting.......40 minute wait. Tried looking for service bulletins....none.
Bell....a company that makes it's entire living in the communications industry, is the absolute worst at communicating.

So is anyone else in the Winnipeg area experiencing an outage of TV service?

BellMTS does not usually  issue a service bulletin unless it effects a large number of customers.

You could check the MB hydro outage page to see if they are reporting problems in your area as a power outage may be taking the street side cabinet serving you down.  https://www.hydro.mb.ca/outages/index.shtml

Just in Winnipeg alone  as I type this Hydro is showing 5 separate outages affecting over 700 Customers.

Something else to keep in mind, last night had some pretty strong winds. If your area has overhead Bell MTS wiring it could be a very localized issue with a loose wire.
