On its 50th Birthday, Videotron Says THANK YOU by Turning the Spotlight on Customers

MONTRÉAL, QUÉBEC--(Marketwired - Nov. 13, 2014) - Break out the champagne! To celebrate its 50th birthday, Videotron has invited the people responsible for its success - its valued customers - to the party. Fifty customers were presented with unexpected and original tokens of appreciation by well-known media personalities. Their surprise and delight were captured for Videotron's 50th birthday advertising campaign.

The 50 lucky customers received gifts that reflect their usage of Videotron products and services. For example, television personality Marie-Christine Proulx invited residents of a Québec City street, all Videotron customers, to a block party and surprised a family of seven children that downloads impressive quantities of Disney films with a dream vacation at Disneyworld; Louis-François Marcotte met loyal food channel viewers and took them on a unique tasting tour; and Louis Jean presented a fan of ultimate fighting and boxing on Indigo with a trip to Las Vegas and tickets to the fight of his choice.

"Anticipate, exceed, surprise: those three goals have guided Videotron's decisions over the past five decades and will surely continue to do so for the next 50 years," said Manon Brouillette, President and CEO of Videotron. "We have established a special relationship with our customers and have become part of their daily lives, from TV night at home to business success. This close connection and in-depth knowledge of our customers is what drives our success and motivates our team to excel, day after day."
