Another exclusive for Vidéotron Internet customers

Montréal, September 15, 2004 – Vidéotron is pleased to offer subscribers to its High- Speed Internet and Extreme High-Speed Internet services free, exclusive access to Occupation double webcam feeds starting from the end of the season’s first episode, at 9:30 pm, Thursday, September 16, until November 18. For the second year in a row, 32 backstage webcams will be trained on the contestants 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to let Vidéotron Internet customers follow all their doings.

Program concept
Occupation double, which airs on the TVA network Thursdays at 8:00 pm and Mondays at 7:00 pm, features 12 singles searching for their soul mate. Six guys live in a house next door to six girls. They get to know each other through a variety of group and paired activities. Every Thursday, the girls vote one guy off the show until there is only one left. The remaining guy then eliminates one girl per week until there is only one, and they are the winning couple. Occupation double was No. 1 in the ratings last fall.

Subscribers to Vidéotron’s High-Speed Internet and Extreme High-Speed Internet access services will get automatic access to the webcams, exclusively and free of charge, and will be able to see the contestants’ reactions and emotions live. Subscribers will be able to access the webcam feeds by going to the official Occupation double site at www.occupationdouble.com and then clicking on the “Caméras web” button.
