I see on the guide now that Rock Velours and Energie2 are now L'Oasis Francophone and Latitude Franco.

When were these changed? I don't remember an announcement.

I noticed Energie2 has been replaced - as per wikipedia:

"Latitude Franco is a Sirius Canada channel (in response to XM Radio Canada's Air Musique channel) featuring new and emerging French Canadian music, such as punk, hip-hop, electronic and alternative rock music. It was born in September 2010 as a replacement for Astral Media's Énergie2 on the same channel, although that channel also played English music. The channel broadcasts in the French language."
