Re: AMC??

Maybe but AMC is gonna get cancelled on the Super Channels too. 

So what difference does it make ?

Re: AMC??

Bell likely has a much larger English speaking subscriber base than Videotron, so it is less likely that they would cancel. Plus they now have a competitive feature that differentiates them from Videotron: AMC! I would probably switch back to Bell if they ever put Fibe in my building.

If videotron drops AMC I will be switching to another carrier after 42 years. Any suggestions anyone? I was looking at bell as I live in Montreal ???

Re: AMC??

Can someone tell me if bell is reliable because I have to switch. If AMC is no longer offer I will have to switch after 42 years. Might as well give the 350$ a month I am paying to another company. I live in Montreal When I contacted videotron the agents were not helpful at all. This is a very bad experience in client services

I had been with Bell for over 40 years, and left them about 6 months ago due to their inability to deliver on many promises to install fibe in my apartment building. I had Bell Satellite (which was excellent), a land line and internet. Internet was very slow: maximum download speed was 6 MB/S. Certainly not sufficient for streaming HD content. Videotron came in at a similar price with download speeds in excess of 100MB/s. That was the only reason I switched to Videotron. While I am really upset that they are removing Amc from their lineup, it is not a dealbreaker. However if I see them removing other channels such as FX or TCM, then I will need to consider other alternatives such as switching back to Bell Satellite TV. In my opinion, what they should have done was offer a streaming only option for AMC. While it wouldnt have been a perfect solution, it would have helped.

Re: AMC??

I have AMC and Sundance and both are being discontinued.  The only offer that customer service had was to assist in changing channels.  There are no other movie channels in my package.  They suggested FX Canada.  Murdoch mysteries over and over. 

 

They need to to at least offer some alternative.

Re: AMC??

Coming at the same time as a rate increase of 8 bucks a month, 4 of which is for TV this is not very good optics for Videotron. More like what I was used to with Bell.
