all the major Canadian service providers

Videotron is the 4th biggest provider in canada (cable or satellite).
I called Allarco and they confirmed that Videotron will carry it.

I get some information that Videotron will add National Geographic HD and A&E HD on september 27.

But it's unofficial so...wait & see.

I must be a marketing fool.

It seems to me that it would be a good thing to announce that

'Videotron to offer ?? new HD channels in September'!

NO?

Customer retention? At least a little excitement.

Is it just me(?), or might they need a little help over there?

They probably will carry it, but they don't have to because the license make it mandatory to carry it for all cable provider in an English market. Videotron is not in an English market except for the few small town they have in eastern Ontario.

Since they are launching 6 channels (including 2 in HD) and an on demand service, I am pretty sure we will not get all of them. We would get TMN on Demand before Superchannel on demand and also, they would give their TMN subscriber the 2nd HD channel (MMore HD) before giving Superchannel 2 HD channel.

I predict that they will get only 1 HD channel if any...

WOW! Is this confirmed? Is this for sure. If so WOOHOO!!!

I would prefer MPIX HD a million times over this or WB/CW in HD or any movie or superstation but man I am so starved for HD content this will do :)

Probably the CSR told you they have no information but it's official.

To get these 2 stations, the customer need to pay the monthly fees for HD (2,99$ / month) + get the channel in standard version.
