I just wake up this morning and browse through the channels..
I land on 115 (PeachTree TV, which was kinda better when it was TBS but what can you do?) and there's no guide info available. Weird, but this sort of stuff happens all the time, so I just tune in to the channel to be greeted with a "This channel is no longer available".
Anybody knows what's going on? Obviously it seems either Videotron dropped it or the channel is no longer available period (it broadcasts from Atlanta, iirc). I doubt it's due to the channel no longer being available in general: their website is still up and announcing stuff for tonight (http://www.peachtreetv.com/).
This kinda sucks since I was watching that channel quite a bit. All those older sitcom reruns were great. TVTropolis is okay, but they don't run some of the older stuff I loved to watch, like Cheers.
I'll call Videotron later today to see what's going on. Hopefully I can get an answer from them.
The channel Peachtree (WPCH-17 Atlanta) is no longer available through our cable television service. This channel which was on position 115 has been removed from our channel grid. This removal is due to the present economic context and to the higher costs demanded by the broadcaster to offer it.
If you have the Peachtree channel in your à la carte package, you should change if for another channel. Note that most of Peachtree TV's programming is found on several American channels as well as other specialised channels which we already offer. We suggest you consult your TV guide.
Seems like I'll have to bug them for something to replace it - I have the Mega package so I was actually paying for that channel (along many others) and since I don't have A la carte I can't really change it for another channel
I was (and still am) very upset when I found that out this morning. Peachtree had a lot of good shows on: Cheers, Fresh Prince, Famile Guy, Seinfeld. It would show good movies most nights. Yes, that had been edited to fit in a 2 hour slot but whatever, it was good night watching. Plus, Atlanta Braves games in the summer.
It was one of my favourite channels for 'relaxing entertainment' and i'm really not happy that it has been removed. It was Videotron's only American channel as well (not counting the regular abc/nbc/cbs).
They have some movies, baseball in the summer, local news (NYC, L.A., Chicago and Boston depending on which station). 3 of them are affiliated to the CW, so the prime time schedule is the same. If you get tmn or super ecran, it's 2 $ for all four, or without the movie stations, I think it's 5 $ .
i like them. I get all my New York city news morning and night. my favorite city in the world.
