How to activate an additional Bell Satellite TV receiver

You can activate up to five (5) additional Bell Satellite TV receivers on your account at no extra cost if they're installed in your home. You'll find more details in the customer agreement.

  1. Turn on your new receiver and press MENU on your remote.
  2. Select System Setup (option 6).
  3. Select Installation (1), then System Info (3).
  4. On the System Info screen, the SmartCard number is the one that starts with S and the receiver number is the one that starts with R.
