In a rare, distinct advantage for one of the Big Three Canadian telcos, Bell has an exclusive offering that is apt to appeal to the overwhelming majority of British Columbians and many others across Canada: the ability to watch the Vancouver Canucks play the Boston Bruins in the Stanley Cup Finals live on your smartphone or tablet.
While most would prefer to watch it on their big screens or at a pub, not everyone is so lucky. Given that the games start at 5:00pm, many Vancouver commuters will be trapped in gridlock traffic after work. What better time to pull out the iPad 2 and stream the history-making sporting event?
Bell users can download the app for their iPad, iPhone, BlackBerry, Android device, or Windows phone for free with certain bundles or pay $5 and up for various packages. In this case, you'd want the Mobile TV Sports package, which offers 10 hours per month of TSN including NHL and NFL games for $5.
