    First of many, perhaps?

    Is it possible someone could do the same for other cable companies
    and put up a page with the classic channel lineups? It'd be interesting
    to see how much (or how little) the monthly rates were then, too.:D

    In the south shore of Montreal area in 1976 before pay tv channels and converter boxes. My memory is a little fuzzy but I think this was the layout.
    When the first converter boxes came out you could get WETK on the cable band [20,21,22] since the channel 6 feed had horrible ghosting being on the local CBC OTA channel along with CJOH 8 CTV Cornwall and WMTW 8 ABC Poland Spring ME. I believe we only paid 10 dollars a month for cable back then.

    Worth noting here is that Montreal's Cable TV went on to become known as CF Cable TV from the 1980s up until 1997 when it was purchased by Videotron.

    Please let me know what corrections need to be made if anyone still has access to them.

    In the meantime, here are some more classic lineups:

    In your 1991-1994 line-ups for CF Cable, CNN and A&E were likely scrambled premium channels at that time. I believe they went into a tiered package in December of 1994 when channels such as Bravo, Canal D and RDI were launched.

    That's what I was kind of thinking but I wasn't certain. If that's the case, thanks for verifying!

    Would you happen to have a listing of old channel guides for CF Cable (pre-Videotron) from the 1980s and 1990s?

    I was hoping you would since I needed to verify some positions - especially the local cable channels (like Infopub, PPV Previews, Tele Annonces). Things got a little more complex through the mid-1990s not only with the tiered package (TeleMax) but also with the addition of Canal Indigo.

    At one point, I think A&E was dropped temporarily from CF Cable around this time.

    TVOntario went on to be dropped in 1991 in favor of WCFE but was later reinstated in the 30s as a premium scrambled channel.

    CBC Newsworld moved up to channel 36 replacing CHLT.
    WMTW was also dropped in favor of A&E.

    For the Videotron lineup in 1988, Encan Sablier on channel 18 became YTV in summer 1989 (nearly a year since its launch).

    When it was moved to channel 36 in 1991, it remained on basic cable and not a premium scrambled service.
