The DiscoveryHD, channel # 664, has always been part of package "HD Extra". The change that took place was from Discovery... instead of the odd HD format from time to time for their programs, this week they started supplying Videotron with HD 24/24. (Some programs shown recently, we had viewed them before).

Videotron, on the other hand, demonstrated its resistance by not putting up the new IPG for that channel which Rogers did, in their case.
