Since the Superchannel free preview is now over and I'm a Homeland fan, I checked out whether I can get Homeland on my XBMC box and I can. The thought of paying for it for one program didn't make sense. Then I thought that perhaps I could do the same my TMN subscription as there are only a handful of shows I watch on TMN/HBO. Sure enough they were all available so it brought into question whether I should continue to subscribe to the movie network.
While I was pondering this, yesterday I received a letter from Videotron saying that the The Movie Network cost will increase by $1.99 starting November 26th.
By March 2016, Canadians will be able to subscribe to an entry-level television service that cost no more than $25.
Canadians will be able to add specialty channels on a pick-and-pay basis or in small packages.
By December 2016, viewers will be able to subscribe to channels on a pick-and-pay basis as well as in small packages.
Cable and satellite companies can continue to offer their existing packages.
