Exciting New TV Service Launches in Quebec City, Gatineau, Sherbrooke, Trois Rivières, Shawinigan, Saguenay, Chicoutimi and Rimouski.
Montreal, Quebec, May 23, 2017 – VMedia Inc., Quebec’s new TV, Internet and Home Phone provider , is pleased to announce the roll-out of its unique and affordable TV service to Quebec City, Gatineau, Sherbrooke, Trois Rivières, Shawinigan, Saguenay, Chicoutimi, Rimouski and their surrounding areas.
Together with VMedia’s low cost internet and home phone packages, VMedia is the only triple play alternative to the major incumbents’ players in those markets. Already a successful competitor with a growing customer base in Montreal, as well as Ontario and the Western provinces, VMedia will now offer better prices and more choice and flexibility in TV, internet and phone services to nearly 500,000 more homes in Quebec.
VMedia TV services are available in the new markets as of today.
VMedia’s TV packaging strategy offers low prices and the most choice and flexibility for Quebecers to select their favourite channels and build their own customized TV channel line-up.
“After our successful launch in Montreal last year, we have been getting many requests for our service from the rest of Quebec,” said Andre Charette, General Manager, VMedia Quebec. “We are very happy to be able to respond to that demand, and expand our ability to provide a much-needed alternative for consumers to the big companies in triple-play TV, internet and phone services.”
VMedia has been offering more choice and better prices in TV, internet and home phone services since its launch four years ago, and its services and innovative features have been welcomed in homes across Canada as a better value option over the traditional TV providers. VMedia offers the full range of TV services consumers expect – plus cool features – at prices up to 30% less than those of the big players.
“VMedia’s innovative approach to pricing and packaging live TV channels, and with access to a world of internet content with one device, one remote and one easy interface is in sync with how consumers want to experience video content today” continues Andre Charette, “With triple play services eating up more and more of our household expenses, all homes in Quebec and the rest of Canada deserve nothing less. For example, we offer our “skinny” basic package for $17.95, with all five US networks included, well below the prices charged by the big companies, as well as other great TV packages like Le Complet, a French package featuring every single French specialty channel, for only $49.95.”
With the full lineup of French, English and multicultural channels offered in packages large and small, as well as on a standalone or pick a package basis, VMedia offers more choice and better prices in TV services than any of its competitors. All the channels are available from premium sports channels like RDS, TVASports, TSN and Sportsnet, to specialty channels like Canal D, Canal Vie, Showcase, AMC, CNN and Discovery, to Pay TV services like SuperEcran and TMN/HBO Canada.
VMedia delivers its content through its proprietary VBox, an advanced, Android-based set top box and media player combined, that provides a traditional TV subscription service, with cool TV features like VCloud “look back” TV, VOD and PVR, as well as internet content on TV screens with easy access to 100s of apps including Netflix, YouTube, movies, music, games, social media, multicultural channels, and more. The VBox also lets you access a browser, so you can surf the Internet from the comfort of your couch.
VMedia TV can also be watched with ROKU Players, by downloading the VMedia app.
VMedia’s TV services require VMedia’s high-speed internet, which itself is the lowest priced unlimited internet service in the market. And best of all, VMedia does not require contracts to enable subscribers to benefit from its great everyday low prices.
VMedia Inc., provides innovative TV, high-speed internet and home phone services, offering more choice and flexibility, unique features and lower prices than the major players. VMedia is the only alternative triple-play provider to those players in Ontario, Quebec, BC, Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan.
