Who can I email at Space to complain about the fact that as of 2010, they still don't have an HD channel? What the heck are they waiting for?

No news from TSN2 on Videotron... I hope they provide this channel...
We now have the Golf Channel in HD.... but no TSN2...

And by the way even if I leave in Montreal.... I only follow the Sens!
Except when they play against the bleu blanc rouge!

How about Turner Classic Movies (TCM)

I think it should be time for Videotron to really offer a channel of Classic movies, the best being TCM.

VIDEOTRON = V-idiot-RON: Useless, Boring Channels

Over the years of asking Videotron to offer popular channels, all they have ever offered were arrogant and useless replies. They keep adding channels which have negligible audiences. They keep resisting some of the more popular ones from the US. Obviously one reason is language but why not SUBSTITUTE a few of their dull, pitiful English channels for others that many would be willing to pay extra for ??? Why are Montrealers still denied channels like FOX NEWS ?? TCM (Turner Movie Classics) ?? AMC (American Movie Classics) ??? etc etc etc
One cannot reason with obstinate entities like the "brains" who run Videotron....they're still stuck in the sixties when they ran a monopoly and dictated what customers had. It only changed when Bell came on board but both providers have a lot to be desired when it comes to choice !! THE ONLY positive that V-idiot-ron offers is 'a la carte channel selections instead of forcing bundles. Apart from that - V-IDIOT-ron is a more appropraite name.

Fox News?

don't you mean FAUX news lol

more seriously, first, you should not forgot that unlike cogeco and Bell, videotron have a majority of french customer, as such they negociate the contract in consequences, since theses channel sell less, they dont want to pay the same amount as rogers, bell or cogeco, since these have more english customers

but since most of them dont care about this......

also, i would ask you to refrain to use such a name, especially since i can get insulted pretty easily but such comment.......

Vive le fun!

To Rookie One -

If you're THE VIDEOTRON TECHNICIAN - then YOU refrain from being subjective on FOX NEWS....ha, ha, FAUX news - yeh clever but you're the typical Canadian / Quebecois leftist whiner who only wants to hear their beloved EXTREME socialist, state domination of everything views rather than getting both extremes.
Regarding the French audience - typical response I have been hearing from you people for years - you've been indoctrinated to repeat this at the drop of a hat. I did say, Rookie, to drop some ENGLISH channels not worth crap and give us popular channels from USA.
Not listening .... yeh...they're IDIOTS - and fits VIDEOTRON perfectly.
Here, I repeat it V-IDIOT-RON.....peace...

that was a personnal opinion i was expressing, i'm one who don't like fox news, and FYI, on the political scale, i'm a center

and for typical response, just check the stats, and i'm not talking about ours, but the census about the areas we are deserving, you will see that i'm right

anyways, if youre not happy, why are you still with videotron?

Vive le fun!

You don't really read do you ? You keep missing points that I make. Bell sucks just as much as V-idiot-ron but V-idiot-ron at least doesn't force bundles on us...but their choices still suck...

And..what stats ? You guys make up any stats you want. Fox news is one extreme but we should be able to see and hear both sides. I don't want or need cable companies and the fxxxing CRTC dictating what we can or cannot get....

Hopefully in a few years, the internet will make all you cable companies obsolete....

By the way, you people want to hear about the expertise of V-idiot-ron ?
When HBO Canada was introduced last September, two service people at V-idiot-ron didn't even know what HBO Canada was. I, as the customer, had to educate them that it was a new service from TMN and came automatic. They weren't even aware about the new service. This has happened many times in the past when new services were offered. I think half the company doesn't know what the other half does.

i said just check the damn census(the government one)

for about HBO Canada, i cannot really say, i was not there at the time.

but each time i call the Customer service to ask them something, i always get the information, even on the new channels and programs, as such you were probably just unlucky

Murphy's law perfect example!

more seriously, i know that theyre negotiating with CTV so they can get TSN2, dont know how well its going thought

Vive le fun!

HEY Videotron - just give us TCM, Showtime and Fox News and we'll keep our mouths shut. Do something different for once in your sorry history....

The message was addressed to your employer - not to you Rookie.

Who knows where you work at Videotron - you may be on this board as Videotron's eyes and ears and countering negative posts from unsatisfied Videotron clients. They have a long history of arrogance especially before competition came in with Bell.

The Peladeaus must thank their lucky stars every day that the dad purchased Videotron so long ago since the once glorious newspaper core is not doing well !!

one thing, i'm here on my own, my boss don't know that i'm here (if i was, i would not badmouth the engineer in earliers posts)

Sarpedon, get youre fact straight, it was not Pierre Péladeau who buyed Videotron, he was death in 1997, while videotron was buyed by quebecor in 2000, meaning that its Pierre-Karl Peladeau


anyway Back on topic

for those who want to watch the NFL matchs, they will be available in the sportmax packages, please, just remember, that when you activate a terminal you dont have access to some channels(sportmax included) until the next system update

i got enough calls right now

Vive le fun!
