It could be a screw up at videotron.
We once had HDNET for a very brief period.

This channel exists in the Gatineau area only, because you can get it OTA (CKXT-DT-3 on UHF-20 in Ottawa).

I have lost faith in videotron adding any of my favorites channels in HD. They claim that they adding the most requested channels in HD but I think it is a lie. Think what their doing they removed Peach Tree which I don’t understand they could have just put Peach Tree with the super stations & charged bit extra for it & before that they removed The Xtreme channel & they removed Bite. It looks like their going French on us but I’ll wait it out see what happens in the future. With all that I think they are the best in customer support & technical support service & at the end of the day the question you want ask yourself if you want more digital & HD or the best customer support & technical support service in Quebec?

you must understand that Videotron must take a agreement with the channel to have the right to retransmit it.

in that case, i can say that peachtree was asking for a lot of money, in fact they acted like they did not understood that in quebec the majority of subscriber will not subscribe to them and videotron did not want to raise the prices of everyone simply because one speciality channel wanted more than those who have a biggest market share

Setanta Sport Canada

I've sent an e-mail to Videotron regarding the availability of Setanta Sport Canada on Videotron. See below their reply. I hope more people write to them so they see market for this channel.



Thank you for your interest in our digital service and for having taken the time to write us about Setanta Sport Canada.

This station is not presently available and we have no information concerning its future availablility.

Videotron regularly adds new channels to its illico service. However, we cannot offer all the channels available for digital television.

The services and needs differ from one region to another and the channel additions requested must reflect the real interest of our customers.


Your comments are important to us, and we have forwarded them to our marketing department.

A popular channel could eventually be added to the illico service.

Thank you for your collaboration.

This is what Setanta said about videotron

"We'd love for them to pick us up, but haven't heard anything on their end
for a while. They are one of the few providers in Canada that doesn't have
Setanta. Sorry about that."

I would pay 10 dollars a month for the super stations if peachtree was on it theres no way that peachtree wanted more then 3 dollars. People just know peachtree more money but people doesn't know how much more I will say it again theres no way that peachtree wanted more then 3 dollars
