Let's see... Customers already received a 2$ increase for the basic service last january 2012. If you check Videotron's website, Packages section, you'll notice that their prices have increased!
Examples, Custom Package 10 (17$) is now 20$, that's 2$ per channel.
Pre-assembled packages have almost all increased by 1$.
So, if your only TV needs are for hockey games in HD where you pick basic + 10 channels, you pay 20$ basic + 20$ for 10 channels + 3$ network access fee + 3$ HD fees + 3$ for TSN/RSN HD + 1.5% LPIF + GST + QST. Total 57.18$ just to get hockey games on TSN. That's expensive.
YIKES!!!! I did not know it was $20 for 10 channels!!!!!!
I Just checked out the 15 and 30 channels option and the prices are crazy.
Yes Videotron is way expensive compared to Bell. I had a post comparing prices and it was removed so I won't go into details here.
.... Bell Fibe. The service and the price may not be as good as Videotron in the long run (This remains to be seen.),.... f you are with Videotron just because it is cheaper then you are wasting your money anyway.
There is no way Videotron is cheaper. I have the a la carte 15 with Bell Satellite and my parents have the same thing with Videotron. There is no comparison possible.
They do not have Canadian time shifting
Their American Channels are not included in their basic channels
LCN is not included in their basic channels
They do not get HD becuase they have to pay the $3 HD fee.
Videotron will give you $3 off if you have a second service. My parents had $3 off on their mobile service and a dollar off on their TV package but videotron switched the $3 credit over to the TV package so they could be seen as giving better value on their TV programming.Yep way to go Videotron!!!!! But their prices are still higher than others.
I am ranting about Videotron so I think the post is placed in the right thread.
