|bradpitt||Did your source say anything about MPIX HD or TCM (Turner Classic Movies) per chance ?|

|Flavius||Glad to see it coming back but this begs the question -- why is Videotron charging us $4 for this channel while Rogers includes it for free?|

|mfabien||OK, thanks. Will be on the lookout to see DiscoveryHD come back.|

It is to be noted that it will be on position #725, not on position #664 as it was before...

|jfdube||Memo sent from a supervisor to another Videotron employee. As seen on another forum. Furthermore, I did get a letter from Videotron yesterday, stating pretty much the same thing (other than the price).|

|jfdube||Apparently, Discovery HD will be back on Videotron on Feb. 16 and will be free until July. After that, the channel will cost 3.99$.|

There are definitively some jerks out there that take us for idiots.
Why can't Videotron broadcast it for free until July like BEV?
Some folks will move to BEV for DiscHD and then later in July Videotron
is going to start offering DIscHD?

And now, oil on the fire
Bell Express Vu does it now!

Agree .. a la carte is the way to go...People have different interests.
All US nets, TSN HD and RSN HD are vital to us.
We don't care at all about Discovery HD but we would not mind paying a few bucks more for Moviepix HD.

|poppadon||Agree, a la carte would be nice, but I would probably also go for the US broadcasts, including PBS. Wouldn't Discovery Kids, Animal Planet and National Geographic be awesome in HD, will I live to see the day?|

The return of Discovery HD...but at what cost?
I am confident Discovery HD will be back....but will we be charged more for it?
Probably yes...I don't see how Videotron would cut down on their profit and there is no doubt Discovery HD will cost more to them than what was expected the 1st time. I think I speak for the majority of the folks with the HD package when I say that it is poorly bundled and definitely offer that way
to kind of force the price on us. Like everyone else I only watch 1/2-1/3 of the channels on that package. If I could buy HD a la carte...I would probably only get Discovery HD and TSNHD....
