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.
Do as a did... Just watch your AMC show on Netflix... The only problem with this solution is that you will have to wait one year. On the plus side, you will be able to binge watch all the episodes the same day instead of on each week.
... and to add insult to injury, I just got an email stating that the 15 Channel Show-Time option will increase 95 cents and the Internet Hybrid Fibre 120 will increase 1 dollar per month. Talk about bad timing.
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.
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.
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.
We have reached an agreement with AMC to our mutual satisfaction that responds to our regional market reality. It is thanks to a lot of effort and perseverance that we have been able to make our clients' voices heard.
