The "best" package contains all the "standard" channels. Certain French channels would be a separate package as would the movie channels and the premiuum sports packages. There are fewer channels in the "better" package, but there are some extra channels you can choose, but you might be better off getting the "best" package. I'm sure this info is somewhere on their web site because I used it to choose my programming. I actually saved money choosing "best" and getting way more channels than I had before (not that I look at them anyway!) For example, I believe you can now get the superstations without subscribing to the movie channels like you had to before.
As for the 6131, it is not a PVR. You cannot record on it but if you have a DVD recorder, you could hook it up to the 6131 and record, but it won't be HD. The only other way you can record is to get the 9241 PVR. If you can get the 9242 that would be better still as it has two tuners.
Hope all this helps! Bell's web site is a little clunky getting around, but if you use the "search" button, or just browse around, you'll find what you're looking for.

Yes, you can record with a 6131 by adding an external hard drive. See this thread:
