Canada's BCE posts profit on wireless spend, TV growth

TORONTO, Nov 5 (Reuters) - BCE Inc posted a solid rise in third-quarter profit on Thursday, helped by its wireless customers spending more for service and strong growth in Internet and television subscriptions, the Canadian telecommunications company said.
