BCE has finally decided to leverage its extensive media saavy to provide high-bandwidth content to Bell Sympatico subscribers. The web portal is currently in the works, but if you are on Sympatico, you can take a sneek peak at Sympatico Fast Lane: Members Only and speed.sympatico.ca.
However, Sympatico Fast Lane seems to have some truly interesting, unique features in the works:
NHL SnapShot: Watch an abridged 20 minute clip of any hockey game from the previous night. Today, you can see the Leafs lose the playoffs :(.
2004 Juno Awards: Exclusive live webcast.
Off the Air: A compilation of funny TV commercials to watch. An intriguing feature, considering AdCritic is no longer around.
Download Centre: Members-only download site for game demos, movie trailers, etc. Never wait at FilePlanet again.
SayMail: You can create your own email greetings, complete with images and a voice recording.
However, I await the day that CTV (part of Bell Globemedia, which is a subsidiary of BCE) offers their TV shows online as video downloads, kinda like what the BBC is doing now.
