Videotron today announced that it has reached an agreement to acquire Télédistribution Amos inc. (Cable Amos) and its network. The Québec telecom leader expects that Abitibi-Témiscamingue residents living in Cable Amos' service area will be able to join its subscriber family in the coming months and enjoy the best customer experience in the market.
Cable Amos currently serves Amos, Senneterre, Barraute, Lebel-sur-Quévillon, Belcourt, Ste-Gertrude-Manneville, Launay, Trécesson, Berry, Champneuf, La Motte, Landrienne, La Corne, Preissac, St-Felix-de-Dalquier, St-Mathieu-d'Harricana, St-Marc-de-Figuery, La Morandière, Rochebeaucourt, Guyenne, St-Dominique-du-Rosaire, Pikogan and Rivière-Héva. Residents covered by Cable Amos' wireline network will be able to experience Helix, Videotron's new home entertainment and management platform.
The acquisition is expected to close in the spring of 2020. It is subject to approval by Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada and to customary conditions. Videotron's teams will then meet with Abitibi residents living in Cable Amos' service area to present Videotron's products and start taking installation appointments.
Videotron was already planning to offer its products and services in the rest of the region by interconnecting to the Cablevision network. With this acquisition, Videotron will be able to connect an even greater number of Abitibi-Témiscamingue residents.
