    Vidéotron: New Channels

    It has already been mentioned in the French forum but I thought I'd add it here in English... Vidéotron has just added RDI HD and ARTV HD, it is the first provider to add both new channels.

    RDI HD - 619
    ARTV HD - 631

    I'm somewhat surprised to see Mystère launch an HD channel, I'm not sure about the ratings but financially it doesn't seem to be doing all that great and it even applied to the CRTC a little while ago to reduce its amount of Cancon to a minimum of 40% which is actually below the required level for a category 1 channel which is 50%.

    I guess they see it turning around for them soon and an HD channel will help them out in attracting viewers.

    Actually, Mystère is the most popular french digital channel. Well maybe Télétoon Rétro is now the most popular, but Mystère still has better ratings than Prise 2, Les Idées de ma maison, RIS and Argent.

    It may be popular but that isn't translating into profits for the channel though. But more popular than RIS? I doubt that, RIS has over a million subscribers and for a French digital channel, that's impressive. And it's also making money, profiting just over 2 million in 2007 which is great even by English dignet standards.

    There's a lot of French channels going HD these days, maybe RIS would be a good choice for an HD channel.

    Videotron announced today the removal of channel Bite TV (170) by November 12th, stating the network link will become unavailable... whatever that means.

    Weird thing is, Videotron grabs some channel feeds by fiber directly from Rogers, which is the case for SportMax (NFL Sunday Ticket, HHL Center Ice)...

    Videotron added MMORE HD (which became HBO Canada HD today) on channel 712

    Pleasently surprised!

    They also added 2ther HD channel, 663 and 664. The first one is labeled HSPO2 , probably a 2nd Sport max package HD channel and the second HDSP3 which sounds like a special HD channel, but not sure for what.

    Also they added 14 SD channels in the 468-481...probably to have a new sports package added to Baseball Hockey and Football.

    Videotron will remove PeachTree (aka TBS Superstation) channel 115 by the end of january, problem being Turner Broadcasting System is asking too much for this channel.

    IMHO, most of the sitcoms can be seen on other canadian specialty channels, their movies are edited to bits in order to fit enough commercials in a 2 hours block, and Atlanta's Braves games can be seen on SportMax or TSN/RSN anyways. There's no real advantage in keeping PeachTree anymore.

    Videotron added The Accessible Channel to the basic digital service this morning on channel 27.

    They also added SunTV HD on channel 679 in the Gatineau/Rockland area only.

    Vidéotron ajoute les chaînes Évasion HD et TV5 HD à son offre illico télé numérique

    Montréal, le 1er juin 2009 - Les clients illico télé numérique de Vidéotron auront accès dès le 12 juin prochain aux chaînes Évasion HD (position 640) et TV5 HD (position 637). L'ajout de ces nouveaux services porte à 20 chaînes francophones l'offre HD de Vidéotron, qui confirme ainsi sa position de chef de file en matière de divertissement avec le plus grand nombre de chaînes HD en langue française.
    « L'ajout des chaînes Évasion et TV5 en haute définition permettra aux clients illico télé numérique d'avoir accès à une programmation HD francophone encore plus diversifiée. De plus, Vidéotron poursuit ses investissements dans son réseau afin de proposer à ses clients davantage de nouveaux services, mentionne Myrianne Collin, vice-présidente Marketing, secteur consommateur. À pareille date l'an dernier, Vidéotron proposait 15 chaînes HD en langue française. C'est dire qu'en un an, nous avons ajouté cinq services HD à notre offre francophone. »

    La plus grande offre de chaînes francophones HD
    Tous les clients illico télé numérique ont accès à plus de 350 canaux, y compris 40 en haute définition dont 20 en langue française. Les téléspectateurs ont accès aux chaînes HD correspondant aux chaînes numériques standards comprises dans leur forfait, en l'occurrence les chaînes en langue française ARTV, Canal D, Canal Vie, Historia, Indigo, Mystère, Radio-Canada, RDI, RDS, Séries+, Super Écran, Télé-Québec, TQS, TVA, VOX, Vrak, ZTélé ainsi que illico sur demande (position 900).

    Évasion et TV5
    Évasion présente des expériences riches en émotions, convie les téléspectateurs à la rencontre de gens authentiques et est une référence pour partir à la découverte du monde. TV5 propose quant à elle du divertissement de haut calibre, des reportages et enquêtes de choc ainsi que des séries documentaires spectaculaires provenant de plusieurs pays de la francophonie.

    Evasion HD est disponible au canal 640 depuis le 4 juin, mais ce n'est que la cassette promotionnelle en boucle avant le lancement officiel le 12 juin.

    TV5 HD a été ajouté le 2 juin sur Cogeco, sera ajouté le 10 juin sur ExpressVu, mais sera ajouté le 12 juin chez Vidéotron. C'est curieux puisque Vidéotron ont toujours été les premiers à ajouter des canaux francophones HD, et ils ont de la place sur le réseau pour l'ajouter maintenant...

    Golf Channel HD is coming to Videotron on September 9th on Channel 713. Free preview from Sept.9-Oct.7.

    Also rumored to be coming is Planete HD by the end of the year.

    Not really impressed by that. I'd rather have Showcase HD or one of the Superstation in HD to get programming we are not getting in HD of the CW...

    We'll only have access to 3 CW shows in HD this season: 90210 and Melrose Place (on Global 608) and The Vampire Diaries (on CTV 607).

    Supernatural and Smallville are on SunTV, the HD feed is only available in Gatineau/Hull area, and they also air on Space, you have to use the "Zoom" function.

    Gossip Girl, Top Model and Beautiful Life are on /A\ which we don't get, and they won't even air on CTV Montreal.

    No Canadian network picked One Tree Hill.

    TSN2 and TSN2 HD will be available starting september 30th on channel 61 and 661.

    Positions currently used by GolTV (61) and RSNHD (661) will move higher in the dial.

    Edit: That announcement was either pushed to later or was an online hoax.

    Unfortunately, CFTO HD CTV Toronto (607) will be replaced by a localized version, starting December 1st.

    - Gatineau/Hull will have the Ottawa version of CJOH HD
    - And the rest of Quebec will get the Montreal version of CFCF HD
