MONTRÉAL, QUÉBEC--(Marketwire - Dec. 14, 2010) - Just in time for the holidays, Videotron is delivering a stocking full of on-demand titles to customers' living rooms. Dozens of French and English TV programs, series and movies are being added to the catalogue of offerings available on illico TV, illico web and illico mobile, giving customers access to their favourite shows on three screens.

Now seven channels on demand

As of tomorrow, on-demand content from seven channels will be available on channel 900: Family-Playhouse Disney, HBO Canada, Super Écran, The Movie Network (TMN), TVA, VOX and YOOPA. Dozens of movies and hundreds of television programs are being added to the offerings already available on illico TV, at no additional cost to customers who have the channels in their package.

Videotron customers will be able to watch the engaging and zany Yoopa programs Théo, Lazytown and Piggly et ses amis, the latest series and movies from TMN and HBO Canada, such as Dexter, Californication and Boardwalk Empire, and repeats of their favourite shows from TVA and VOX. More channels will be added to the list in the months ahead.

On the platform of your choice

The on-demand channels are now available on Videotron's three screens: television, web and mobile. Enriching the content available on illico on demand is another move by Videotron to deliver the television experience in the form that is easiest for customers to access and the best suited to their needs.
