Videotron 2011 New Channels Discussion
New Channels always generate a lot of discussion so this thread is for discussing new channels in 2011.

You're welcome to speculate and discuss new channels coming to Videotron in 2011 but PLEASE unless it's been confirmed by an official press release, be clear about what is speculation and what is fact.

A post saying "a CSR said it was coming" is NOT official, however, it does put it in the "highly" likely category.

If its posted on the CRTC site that its been approved by the CRTC but Videotron has not said anything, I would consider that in the "not very likely at this time" category.

Replaces 2010:

YTV removed from Classic Cable
It appears that YTV will be removed on the 8th of February from channel 18 and will only be available on channel 72 from Digital (read extra cost) TV.

This information was announced by a rolling strip at the bottom of the channel.

The classic channel grid on the videotron web has already made this change.

As usual no explanation provided concerning this change. I guess it must be to free the extra bandwidth required for all those new channels coming in 2011.

Hi Jrmtl06,

Is it part of a theme package or part of the basic package?


jrmtl06 2011-02-02 12:30 PM

Right now it is in a free preview for 3 months. Not sure after.

Transmico 2011-02-02 01:30 PM

Thank you.:)

Does anyone know if Gatineau will get all the HD channels the rest of Quebec got last year? It sucks that we're paying the same price for less channels. :rolleyes:

I am really annoyed with Videotron removing YTV from classic cable. I have a digital box, HD/PVR digital box and classic cable (2 hookups) in the kids room. The only channels the kids watch are Teletoon, YTV and Comedy Network.

There is no way in hell, I am going to get two more digital boxes just for one channel. Of all the channels they could remove, it was a kids channel.

Not impressed.

ROFL, I was just looking up my Videotron package, when I seen the following,

* Price includes a 1.5% contribution to the Local Programming Improvement Fund (LPIF).

CMT gone too
They also got rid of CMT. Not that I'm a big fan of country music, but that channel did have so decent old tv shows on.

Playhouse Disney available March SD
yet another SD channel. Why do they keep adding SD channels :(

expressmoria 2011-02-25 07:24 PM

Playhouse Disney
This is Playhouse Disney télé the French version of the channel that was available in English since last year.
The US version of this channel is available in HD.
Canada gets only the lame SD version.

CMT is still on the grid. It's at position 68 on Videotron.
