Vanessa, a Montreal based French language adult pay television channel which went live on October 28th, announced this week on its twitter feed that the station will be part of the Cogeco, Videotron, and Bell Satellite TV line-up by the end of this week.

The station is the brainchild of Anne-Marie Losique, a French television host and producer whose stated goal is to produce a Canadian version of the Playboy Channel.

Sex Shop Television, producers of Vanessa, say the station should not be confused with mainstream adult channel because it will show the more erotic side of sex and will only show hard core adult films after 11pm.

In addition locally developed programs which include an educational series about Sex Toys, Vanessa will also air several Playboy channel shows and games from the Lingerie Football League.

The station is currently available in standard definition, with a high definition version promised in the future. Subscriptions are $15 per month.
