Directly from Videotron themselves. The service will start on Feb 16th and free till July 31st. On august the 1st, it will be available to subscribers for $3.99 a month and will not be offered as part of a package, but rather as a stand alone. It is to be noted that it will be on position #725, not on position #664 as it was before...

Glad to see it coming back but this begs the question -- why is Videotron charging us $4 for this channel while Rogers includes it for free?

If you read a Rogers*thread on this, I believe it mentions free until July.

Did your source say anything about MPIX HD or TCM (Turner Classic Movies) per chance ?
