TSN online,CTV online, RDS online

Hello,

 

I would like to know if you have information as to when we will be able to watch ctv,tsn,rds online.

I find it frustrating that I subscribed to these channels but have no online access.

Hi,

 

It's pretty hard to put an official date for any of the channels that you mention because those channels aren't properties of Vidéotron. Therefore, it will depends if the actual owner of those channels will allow the company to buy the rights for the online streaming. Right now, we can only hope that they'll let Videotron buy the rights, but it might take a while.

I share saadhanano's frustrations. CTV/TSN/RDS might not be Videotron's properties but that is no reason for a deal not to have been worked out yet or at least for there not to have been any progress towards one. These channels are not Rogers' properties either, yet Rogers cable customers can access them online. And speaking of Rogers, their Sportsnet Now service is open to Bell TV customers (in addition to numerous other TV providers). 

 

It's been several years now that Videotron customers have been waiting. I don't expect the details of potential discussions between Videotron and Bell and/or Rogers to be shared publicly; however, not once have I heard or seen any mention of potential discussions towards resolving this.

 

I can't imagine that saadhanano and I are the only customers feeling this way.  I don't know if others have called or posted about it (I didn't check other posts) but that shouldn't hold Videotron back from getting something done. It's 2017; in this digital age, customers shouldn't have to complain about it to receive it. Videotron should be at least a step ahead.

Hello everyone! Rest all assured that we share your desire to get those online channels. We are currently discussing about the online broadcasting rights. Since this is ongoing it is not possible to give more details for now (dates, channels, etc.) so stay tuned, more to come on this!

If it's ongoing as you say, why does the support site http://support.videotron.com/residential/television/tv-package-channels/faq-go-app

 

explains how we can log in the app to see the content? By the way, still can't access..... Same goes for sportsnet app...

Good afternoon Maam_Richer,

 

We will indeed correct the information on the Web site as we currently do not have confirmation regarding the launch date. We are actively working on offering it soon.

 

Thank you for your comment!
