MONTRÉAL, Nov. 28, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ - Ten years after becoming the first provider in Canada to offer Custom cable TV plans tailored to consumers' viewing habits, Videotron is taking the concept one step further in order to give customers greater choice and flexibility. Videotron is introducing five new Custom theme packages that meet its customers' changing needs and make it easier for them to pick channels.
The new plans divide Videotron's channel line-up into categories to let customers create a viewing experience that matches their tastes and is priced right. With the five new Custom theme packages, customers are free to assemble their own television plan:
- Custom Discovery: 10 channels chosen from the catalogue of popular channels
- Custom Show Time: 15 channels chosen from the catalogue of popular channels plus choice of 1 Premium channel
- Custom Game Time: 15 channels chosen from the catalogue of popular and sports channels
- Custom Total: 15 channels chosen from the catalogue of popular and sports channels plus choice of 1 Premium channel
- Custom Big Picture: 30 channels chosen from the catalogue of popular and sports channels plus choice of 2 Premium channels
Customers can further customize and enhance their plans by adding blocks of 5, 10 or 20 channels to these Custom packages.
With these new offerings, Videotron is pushing the envelope again in order to make life even easier for customers. Videotron now also offers all channels on a pick-and-play basis and in small packages, fully meeting the new CRTC requirements that take effect on December 1.
