    If what you're asking is does Cogeco carry those channels in Ontario, yes they do, Animal Planet and National Geographic Channel are on digital cable and Discovery Channel, I guess depending on what city you live in, it is either on analogue or digital cable, but most likely its on analogue.

    It looks as though Cogeco has launched The Golf Channel HD in certain areas that it serves. It's available on channel 738. I haven't heard anything on the packaging or price yet.

    U.S Network hamonization

    Just reciently in Belleville Ontario and most of the Cogeco Markets...They made some changes to the U.S Stations

    05-WXXI(PBS) Rochester replaced by WNED(PBS) Buffalo
    08-WROC(CBS)Rochester replaced by WIVB(CBS)Buffalo
    10-WHEC(NBC)Rochester replaced by WGRZ(NBC)Buffalo
    13-WHAM(ABC)Rochester replaced by WKBW(ABC)Buffalo

    Now to Cogeco in Quinte...how about either separating...

    11-CKWS(CBC)Kingston
    12-CHEX(CBC)Peterborough

    both of which air the same shows except the news...however the only differance is that CKWS(CBC)Kingston is more Local than CHEX(CBC)Peterborough and imagine flipping both channel 11 and 12 with the same shows except the news Try living in Quinte with a lousy cable lineup!!!

    It must be do to the fact that both stations signal reach that particular area, so Cogeco has to place them both on cable. If not, I agree, then that really is a waste of space. But it's not as if the Quinte area is alone in this, I know that Rogers, in the Grand River region, carries both A London and A Barrie on basic analog cable, all the same programs the same time except for news. I'm assuming both signals reach that area some how, if not, again a waste of valuable space.

    Agreed...But it would be kind of nice if we in the Quinte Region would see an Atv Channel, a CTS or an E! Station in this area...we have at least 3 CBC Stations from Kingston(11), Peterborough(12) and Montreal(56) and 2 CTV Stations from Ottawa(6) and Toronto(9) all on their Channel Lineups however back in those days Not all programming was the same on either stations but Today they are like I said except the News and it is also rumoured that CTV Ottawa may be leaving our Lineup when it's Channel 6 Transmitter From Deseronto plans to cease at the end of August but for now I will believe it when I see it!!!

Cogeco Cable customers in Quebec can now access a total of 32 HD channels, including all of the French-language HD channels available here," noted Ron Perrotta, Vice President of Cogeco Cable Marketing and Strategic Planning.

    Tele-Quebec is Quebec's educational and cultural network. Programming reflects and promotes all forms of expression, presents cultural diversity, faithfully depicts social realities, opens windows on the world around us and its environments, supports childhood learning and educates and informs a varied public in all areas of knowledge. HD programs are accessible on channel 501.

    TV5 - Canada's leader in French-speaking cultural diversity, TV5 Quebec Canada broadcasts a variety of programming from many French-speaking countries - news bulletins, in-depth reporting, documentaries, variety shows, fiction, magazines and game shows. TV5 HD is available via channel 518.

    The Mystery Channel features mystery, the unknown and suspense. Popular shows such as Omerta, Fortier, Scoop and many more are presented in HD on channel 516.

    The Score HD (channel 543) broadcasts up-to-the-minute news from the world of sports, with game results and updates every 15 minutes, and live captioning of the latest scores and headlines.

    The specialists at National Geographic Channel bring viewers the finest in exploration and scientific adventure HD programming from around the world on channel 550.

    Access to Mystery HD, The Score HD and National Geographic HD requires subscription to both the Passport and HD Access packages, as well as subscription to their standard definition versions.

    Produced at source entirely in HD quality, Discovery HD (channel 560) offers exploration and discovery documentaries and scientific programming that covers nature, technology, adventure and cultures from all over the world.

    ABOUT COGECO CABLE

    Cogeco Cable (www.cogeco.ca) is a telecommunications company and is the second largest cable operator in Ontario, Quebec and Portugal, in terms of the number of Basic Cable service customers served. Through its two-way broadband cable networks, Cogeco Cable provides its residential customers with Audio, Analogue and Digital Television, as well as HSI and Telephony services. Cogeco Cable also provides, to its commercial customers, data networking, e-business applications, video conferencing, hosting services, Ethernet, private line, VoIP, HSI access, dark fibre, data storage, data security and co-location services and other advanced communication solutions. Cogeco Cable's subordinate voting shares are listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX:CCA).

    --------------------------------------------------------------------

    To sum up the press release, Cogeco will be adding these new HD channels in Quebec:
    • Télé-Québec HD - channel 501
    • Évasion HD - channel 517
    • TV5 HD - channel 518
    • PBS HD - channel 534
    • Mystery HD - channel 516
    • The Score HD - channel channel 543
    • Nation Geographic Channel HD - channel 550
    • Discovery HD - channel 560
    I'm assuming when the article says Mystery HD, that they are really meaning Mystère HD, the French channel owned by Quebecor Media, not Mystery TV which is an English channel owned by Canwest/Quebecor which doesn't even have an HD channel yet. Plus, the channel is on channel 516, which is near the French channels, far from the English channels.

    Movietimehd?!!!

    I was just on the crtc.gc.ca website and I see Canwest also wants to launch a MovietimeHD Channel as well...I wonder if that will get approval, if so it doesn't matter to me cause I'll probably never go HD at all!!!
