Montréal, January 21, 2020 – As a result of another anticompetitive maneuver by Bell, Videotron has been forced to discontinue on-demand access to Super Écran content for its customers, as of today. Bell is also blocking access to its Super Écran Go app, as of today, for Videotron customers who subscribe to Super Écran. Videotron is disappointed that Bell is again using its market dominance to place its main rival at a disadvantage, at the expense of consumers.
Videotron customers who are affected by these changes will receive an email today. Those who wish to cancel their subscription to Super Écran’s linear channels may do so at any time through the Customer Centre or by calling Customer Service at 1 877 512-0911.
