Yes, in those regions, the Detroit stations will replace the ones from Burlington-Plattsburgh market.

I'm wondering if here in Quebec city we will be getting a discount as i'm sure we won't be getting any of these HD channels

Great to see that Teletoon HD, YTV HD and TMN Encore 2 HD made the list.

At this time there is no information when all these new HD channels will start broadcasting and the regions that will be able to access them.

By the way the channel numbers assigned to these stations will be:

TMN Encore 2 HD (817)
Teletoon HD (671)
YTV HD (672)

Lets see if Comedy HD will make the cut.

The more I see the way Videotron operates the more I am glad I ditched some of their services. Only have mobile now. 3 years after launching their mobile service they finally offered some good pricing. Though their coverage is very spotty I will stick with them because no one else has better packages especially now with the new 2 year contracts.

As for their TV service, it leaves a lot to be desired. Their basic HD package costs $23 if combined with another service. From what I see, I am better off with an HD antenna. Their competitor offers a whole lot more for $27.

It seems that Videotron does not invest enough in their infrastructure though they have the Quebec market cornered. They are always last out of the gate in innovation and when they do add something or improve on their offerings it is because of their competitor.

Is CTV2 available in Montreal on Videotron?

rogue17 you have a point with Videotron being a laggard in technology as well as the unavailability of CTV 2 at this time.

However, I am also concerned that Videotron does not have the US channels (ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, PBS) as part of their standard offering like Bell Fibe and they make them count as part of the ala-carte packages.

I could use the extra 5 spots towards other specialty channels of my choice.

expressmoria, I was going to mention that was well. If I am not mistaken those american channels are free and their is no carriage fee as they are OTA. But I could be wrong.

Also for french speaking Quebecers, LCN,Yoopa and now MusisquePlus and Musimax are included in the Bell Basic for $27. That is another 4 extra channels that people can pick in the a la carte option

Meanwhile Videotron offers very little for their $23 Basic HD package. The basic package is $20 and the HD fee is $3.

I am curious as to how Videotron will transition all those customers that are on analog. Bell replaced 240 000 HD receivers for free. I'm guessing Videotron will do the same.

While it is good that Videotron will add those channels in HD, I still do not miss it. What I need and I have with Bell Fibe now that Videotron does not, and has no plan in the near future, are the timeshifters, CTV2 and TSN-Habs. I guess TSN-Habs is never since it is rather Bell-specific.

On the other hand, Videotron has FX Canada that I think Bell Fibe will not have anytime soon.

Another thing, what about video on demand? Bell Fibe has quite good VOD library in HD, I do not even have to record many of the shows as they are available there. That saves me quite a space on my PVR.

I don't believe any of this. Where will they be getting all this bandwidth?

They are probably removing a bunch of analog channels.
