Anybody know when Videotron's free promo of FX Canada is going to end? It seems to have been free on the grid for a few months now and there's no indication that I can find on their website of when this will end and force viewers to subscribe or not.

AMC news??

Has anyone received an update on whether videotron will be adding AMC.

They responded to my last tweet that they are waiting for confirmation of a launch date and no longer talking about "being in negotiations".

A good thing...I hope.

Rainey, Sorry to burst your bubble but this is the same answer since over a year ago. How long does it take for Vidéotron to negotiate for AMC?? All other providers offer it! Personally, I have no confidence in anything that Vidéotron says or promises e.g. Illico 2 was supposed to have multiroom capability in the Fall of 2012 according to what their VP said in May 2012. Now we get the standard response " We are working on it and will let you know when we have information" statement from their Facebook reps.

Luckily Bell just wired my street for Fibe a few weeks ago and as soon as they offer me the Fibe service, I am leaving Vidéotron (and this coming from an ex Expressvu customer who knows about their billing/cust service issues...). I cannot believe how far back Videotron is from Bell Fibe regarding the technology/features/ease of use of their equipment.

expressmoria. I was wrong. It seems either you get it with TMN, Superstations or you have to pay extra ($3). Sorry about the mis-communication.

I have also been getting the same run-around response "AMC under negotiations" for more than a year. I have sent multiple emails, facebook and twitter messages and still nothing. Boy those AMC executives must be tougher than any public union to make deal with (not).

If AMC ever arrives (11 months still left in 2013) I wonder how Videotron will package it? Will they add it to their TMN package or maybe offer it a-la-carte like Oasis?

Does anybody know if Videotron intends to drop City TV Toronto from their grid now that Metro 14 is now City TV Montreal? Both City channels have a spot on Videotron's HD grid, yet apart from a few minor exceptions, their programming is identical. Plus because Metro 14 was on basic cable (meaning you didn't have to choose to subscribe to it) City TV Montreal now has the same status. It would seem to me that the City T.O. spot on the grid would be an ideal replacement for...... oh..... AMC? Just sayin'.

I believe it'll be like FX Canada. if you subscribe to TMN package, wont cost you extra as its part of that package.
