You can get TMN with the a la carte channels? Like, you can choose it as one of your channels...or you chose one of them movie packages?

Cause I dont seem to be able to choose TMN as a single channel....unless I'm crazy...

TMN is a package on its own. $12/month IIRC.

As a followup to my post of a few days back...

I checked my invoice online to confirm whether any charges have been added for the 2 additional SD channels that were once part of the HD extra package.

I previously had:
-Basic digital service ($12.99)
-Network access fee ($2.99)
-20 channels à la carte ($21.99)
-HD extra - which also included 2 additional SD channels at no charge ($5.99)

Now:
-Basic digital service ($12.99)
-Network access fee ($2.99)
-20 channels à la carte ($21.99) - but I still have the 2 channels that came with HD extra at no extra charge (i.e. 22 channels instead of only 20)
-HD network access fee ($2.99)

Good for you. I suspect they grandfathered you. If you make a change to your lineup you could very well lose that bonus.

I doubt that they'll keep it that way, I'm sure when they apply the profiles, you'd lose those channels.

I bet you if you check "Channels I receive" list, you won't find those two channels listed.

I just got my new bill with invoice date Feb. 09, 2007.

I had elected to accept the HD Network Access Fee so I could keep having my HD channels.

My basic digital service used to be $12.99 a month.

On this invoice, the basic digital service for March 01 to March 14 is $5.87 (14 days at $0.42/day) and from March 15 to March 31, it is $7.67 ($0.45/day). No doubt, this fee is fixed by the month, and not by the number of days per month.

It would appear that the monthly rate for basic digital service is going up by close to a dollar. It was my understanding that the HD Network Access Fee of $3.00/month was the only thing being added.

Has anyone else noticed this extra dollar per month on basic digital service?

UPDATE: No sooner had I posted when the mailman passed with a letter from Videotron announcing the new $1 charge added to digital basic service. I suppose this would have happened with or without the new HD Access Fee.

This new HD Access Fee has resulted in the following being added: TVAHD, CTVHD, GLOHD, TSNHD, and CITHD. Of these 5 stations, TSNHD is the only speciality channel amongst them and I get it because I have TSN in low definition as part of my "20 channel a la carte".

CITHD is the only new channel I am seeing for the first time as all the others are available in SD.
