In a Videotron promotion in response to Bell satellite promoting their extensive channels lineup last year, they were stating they offer unique channels instead of a bunch or channels showing the same thing. And well, it's true, they don't offer HBO 2, and neither west coast feeds for Showcase, Comedy, TVtropolis, etc., and no MExcess HD or MFun! HD either, maybe because most movies on those channels air on TMN HD anyway. So, Vancouver HD and Seattle HD ain't gonna happen for a while. TVA West HD may happen, but they don't even offer TVA shows in HD on Illico on Demand, so there's no point.
A few years ago, when a live TV show like dancing or idol on CTV was scheduled to end at 10:01pm but Global was ready to start simsub at 10pm on the same channel while CTV had to start simsub on another US channel. They somehow spoke with each other and Global had to reluctantly adjust to 10:01pm to solve the simsub headache.
Anyways, the TV Hebdo wizards (those who provide illico on-screen guide) had the brightest idea to adjust schedule for ABC, NBC, CBS or Fox to 10:01pm to take canadian simsubs into consideration eventho one affected US network started at 10pm sharp. But since TV Hebdo used copy & paste (they're heavy users of that) for the HD feed, you ended up programming your PVR for 10:01pm but you missed the first minute due to TV Hebdo's dumb decision. Might still happen this year.
Football and baseball overruns will be fun for simsub screwups this october. Enjoy.
