    Vidéotron's website actually says it costs $15.21 a month.

    It also doesn't mention anything about it being available in HD. So anyone know what's the deal with this channel, did it launch in HD or not and is it available on any other BDU?

    It's $14.99 + 1.5% for the LPIF.

    Videotron opted to pass on the HD channel for now. No reason provided. See: http://www.dslreports.com/forum/r248...peu-sur-Illico. (french)

    Playhouse Disney Télé added. Which is somewhat surprising since Quebecor owns Yoopa, which is the same type of channel targeting preschoolers.

    While they are both aimed at preschoolers, the programming is quite different on each channel. Playhouse Disney airs mainstream programming from Disney while Yoopa has other children's programming, including some programming from Europe.

    Videotron appears to be following Shaw's methodology in adding new channels to their lineup, namely being very selective in what they add and very slow to add new channels?!

    Sure, the programming itself may be different, but they are still the same type of channel targeting the same audience. Which could adversely affect Yoopa depending on the packaging since neither channel airs commercials.

    I'm glad they added the channel, but am just surprised that they did. Maybe the demand was high, who knows.

    The Shopping Channel, really? Was there a big demand for it? I am sure is it an arrngement with Rogers (who owns it). Why not add AMC for example. I would love all those additional HD net (Showcase, AMC, Superchannel, ect) But if I could at least watch those AMC shows in SD it would be better than nothing.

    TSc was only available in Montreal-West on analog cable as a place-holder for interference channel 6. After the OTA analog shutdown on August 31, channel 6 will become interference-free so Vidéotron could in theory move a more interesting channel there. It was just a matter of time before TSc had to be added to the digital lineup.

    I would also love to see more english HD channels to the lineup, but everything depends on 1) Fiber-to-the-neighbourhood, which will increase the network capacity to 860Mhz, 2) SDV deployment, which is in progress, 3) removal of analog Telemax, progressively.
