Oh yeah, I see Nitra. I even did the test on my own yesterday. Even though my total was more like 52.95$.
30 is the most you can get, MCIBUS but don't forget, there's the base package too. So, contrary to videotron, you don't need to pick the U.S. networks, Muchmusic, Vision and CTS.
Personally I only have 15 à la carte, and I had all the trouble in the world to find that many. At first I had the french télétoon, I swithed it for History, but then, got tired of Canadien picker and American picker ( I can always watch the dub version on Historia if i'm desperate, anyway) so I switch to AddikTV that I don't especially like, but I'm even more dissatisfied with Sundance, so I have 2 channels on the bubble, right now. I use the current massive french free preview to do some exploring. I switched tree channels on free preview for Showcase, IFC and Bravo. I don't think any of them will make the cut. I don't like NCIS nor the mentalist.
I might try some of those 2$ channels, now.
