Telus Optik TV Channel Discussion Thread

This thread will be for rumours, channel deletions and complaining about any channel not offered by Telus Optik TV.

Actual confirmed new channel announcements and channel deletions will now have their own thread.

Fox Sports Racing

"FOX Sports announced the re-branding of SPEED International, its motor sports and automotive network in Canada and the Caribbean, as FOX Sports Racing, bolstering the high-octane programming lineup to deliver additional motor sports and big-event competition programming for 2015 and beyond. FOX Sports Racing returned to Rogers in Canada on Friday, February 20. " quoted from Jayski
Hope Telus will carry this as I have missed SPEED channel greatly!

Just chatted with Telus. $179.98 I was told for the season.

BTW don't call the number in the guide :-p as it goes to bell.

No more NHL Network?

Tuning into the NHL Network today, a message appears stating the channel is no longer available on Optik. Does anyone have any info on this? It's not like I watched it often considering it was an SD channel, but I still need my hockey fix.

Regardless, it's pretty damn embarrassing that Bell hasn't launched an HD version of this channel.

Spanish channels on Telus Optik TV

Just cruious when Telus will ever get with the program and provide some Spanish channels.

Spanish is quickly becoming a largely spoken language in Canada yet Telus lags in providing service. Meanwhile we get offerings for Korean, Polish, etc.

Seems to be. It's not on any channel listings. CCTV is a state broadcaster in China (and is included in the multicultural packs). This is CCTV News, which is English-language news from them. Might be a free preview.
