Dr.Dave Love Nature Announces Launch of 4K TV Channel in Canada on Videotron | Blue Ant Media

The Love Nature brand is now available as a 4K (Ultra-HD) linear TV channel in Canada on cable carrier, Videotron. The new 4K channel offers the same line-up of exclusive wildlife and nature series as seen on Love Nature’s pre-existing HD channel.

The press release is a couple of months old, but I posted it in case someone isn't aware of it.

Dr.Dave OMNI Regional channels launched across Canada Sept. 1 as a mandatory channel that all TV providers must include as part of Basic TV. More info in this thread:

The CRTC approved Videotron's application to drop ICI (International Channel/Canal International) OTA station and just carry the OMNI Regional channel, which will provide the same programming and Videotron won't be forced to carry duplicate channels. It sounds line the new channel will be at 238 SD and 838 HD (where available) near other multicultural channels and the OTA channel at 16 SD and 616 HD will be dropped.

Shaw Direct and Shaw Cable did the same thing in the rest of Canada with the OMNI OTA channels.

whitefishboy Videotron added Disney Junior (159,759) and Disney XD (160,760) to their line up today. Not sure if they will be free for a period of time or not.

Thank you Videotron.

expressmoria Thanks Dr. Dave
Unfortunately Videotron is a laggard when it comes to adding new channels to their grid especially when it comes to English HD.
I guess I will have to wait until they get flooded with subscriber requests for the XD channel and need to take action.

Dr.Dave Since Videotron isn't mentioned in today's press release, I think they are still working on the contract.

expressmoria Any idea when Videotron will start carrying Disney Canada XD?
This channel is now broadcasting according to the Disney web site but when I check Videotron all is says is "coming soon"!
