Shortly after Canada's Star Choice and Shaw picked up
Speed HD and NASCAR HotPass, along comes Cogeco Cable to keep its own subscribers happy. Effectively immediately, customers in Ontario will now be able to receive "a limited number of Super Channel multiplex channels." More specifically, users will see a half dozen new options including four SD channels, two high-definition channels and a subscription video-on-demand component. As for the HD newcomers, HD1 will provide "premieres and major movies" while HD2 brings a "a compilation of HD-available programming from the other channels." The good news? There's a free trial going on right now until the month's end. The not so good news? It'll be $15.99 a month starting in March.
