  Bell Canada
Bell's predecessor companies, controlled by Alexander Melville Bell (father of Alexander Graham Bell), offered point-to-mass content services over telephone lines as early as 1877: songs, duets, glees, and sermons, for example, were transmitted for reception by subscribers using ordinary telephone instruments as receivers.
Bell Canada and other Canadian telephone companies for many years argued, however, that they should be permitted to own exclusively any and all communication wires into the home or office, including the cable TV connection.
Bell has argued further that telephone companies should now be permitted to enter directly the cable television industry, whether by leasing bandwidth from cable companies or by interconnecting their own coaxial or fibre optic facilities with those of cable companies, in order to receive signals for retransmission from cable head-ends.

Bell has explained that, because the process of obtaining express written consent would be cumbersome, the company some time ago made the decision not to seek such consent from customers, but rather to forego such disclosure of information in general.
Bell affirms, furthermore, that it has never relied upon any consent obtained from the mail-out; in other words, no information has actually been disclosed on the basis of any response from this initiative.
