The VMedia Kiosks will initially launch in sixteen of Canada Computers’ Ontario stores.
“We are very excited to be able to offer VMedia’s TV and Internet services to our customers,” said Gordon Chan, CEO of Canada Computers. “VMedia offers a unique service package of high-speed internet, TV with all your favourite channels, and home telephone, all top quality and competitively priced. And we are thrilled to offer their VBox to all our customers, the only set top box that combines regular TV service, like CTV, CBC, NBC and TSN, with internet content and hundreds of apps like Netflix, Facebook, YouTube, games, music and more. ”
VMedia is the only independent internet service provider with a triple play bundle available across Ontario, and a real alternative to Bell, Rogers, Cogeco and others for consumers, offering more flexibility in choosing TV services, and better prices.

VMedia Kiosks in Canada Computers’ stores offer a large-scale, hands-on customer experience that will show customers how the VBox works, and what a great alternative it is to the costly packages and limited access to internet content that the major players impose. Canada Computers shows again how it brings the latest technologies and best consumer experiences to Canadians.”
"Canada Computer’s mission is to provide the best products and services to our customers, online or in store” added Mr. Chan. “Together with VMedia we have developed an easy in store and online point of sale capability that will allow our customers to buy the VBox and sign up for VMedia’s great services on the spot.”
