Videotron employees serve up the best technology and entertainment experience

Montréal, May 13, 2008 — Videotron launches a new corporate advertising campaign turning the spotlight on the employees who deliver the best customer experience in the realm of entertainment and hi-tech. "This new campaign will show all Quebecers how Videotron's people apply their talents and creativity to provide the technological and entertainment services that our customers so appreciate," said Claude Foisy, Vice President, Brand Management and Content, Videotron. "We felt it was time to highlight the excellent work our employees do behind the scenes and explain how we have achieved a 97%* customer satisfaction rate."

The infinite power of people, the infinite power of cable
The new campaign lifts the curtain on the intricately orchestrated efforts of the employees who produce Videotron's hi-tech offerings and provide excellent customer service to cement the strong 40-year relationship between Videotron and its 1.6 million clients. It features slogans such as "The infinite power of people, the infinite power of cable" and "Some people know how to use technology to turn every second into a unique experience: they work for us, they do it for you," paying tribute to the secret army behind Videotron's success of recent years, the talented employees who enable the company to deliver the best in entertainment and technology.

The Bleublancrouge agency, chosen by Videotron in January to design the campaign, has managed to convey the essence of Videotron's offering: full satisfaction for every customer. That is the goal pursued by all of Videotron's people in every department, from IT and finance to customer service and communications.

“This was an exciting challenge for us,” said Benoit Chapellier, Executive Vice President, Consulting Services, Bleublancrouge. “Like everyone in Québec, the creative staff at Bleublancrouge know Videotron as a provider of tech services, but when it came time to encapsulate the work of thousands of workers and translate their products and services into images and sound, we soon realized the scope of the challenge. I am very pleased with the result and I am confident that the millions of Quebecers who see this campaign will be impressed by the work of Videotron's people."

Friendly Videotron technician is not history
Other materials based on the campaign theme are currently being development and will be rolled out in the course of the year. The ads featuring the affable Videotron technician and his friend at customer service will continue to run alongside Videotron's new campaign.
