Yep, got the same letter. I wonder if AMC raised their prices or is Videotron cutting costs? I'm thinking of Bell as well but are they thinking of cutting AMC as well. Not worth jumping over if Bell cuts AMC as well down the line.
I started shopping at Bell last week who told me they are not dropping AMC but I have been with videotron for decades and wonder how the service is with them. Any comments? Thanks
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.
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.
Good news everyone!
