Are the Lifetime and H2 channels available to Videotron? Just got them on Mabelle. Lifetime is the old Showcase and H2 the old Cave channel.

I was surprised they didn't put them at 682 and 683.
I find them so far in the guide, at 782 and 783. But at least they are there. Maybe it's time to redo the whole numbering system.

I agree that they need to do some changes with the channel numbers. Very pleased they have added these hd stations. Still more to be done in my opinion but a step in the right direction.

I have to admit the new channels put my switching to Bell Fibe On Hold for a bit.
Man, the food on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives sure looks a helluva lot better in HD..lol

I agree with your assesment rainey.

Videotron is missing a good Anglo HD movie package since they only offer HBO and the main Movie Network in HD.

If they also had MExcess, MFun, MFest in HD as well as AMC HD for a resonable monthly price I would subscribe, for now I am not interested.
