A direct to home (DTH) satellite television system from Canada's largest telephone company, Bell Canada. Uses equipment from Echostar, and is a similar service to Dish Network in the U.S.

Several hundred channels are broadcast in MPEG2 format via a geostationary satellite, and are received by small (usually about 18 inch) dishes. A set-top box is needed for each television, to convert the digital MPEG2 video stream back to analog video for the TV to display.
