What content do I get?

Why are some of the channels that are part of my TV package not accessible in the illico App?

Unfortunately the channels currently offered on illico TV are not all accessible in the illico App because some of our partners do not possess Internet broadcast rights for their programming. However, since our goal is to offer a maximum of channels and content to our customers, we integrate new channels and content into the illico App whenever broadcast rights allow it, which allows our content offering to constantly evolve. TV channel content, whether live or on-demand, is reserved exclusively for Videotron TV customers. To watch a channel's content, the channel must be part of the customer's TV package.

Why is some live content unavailable?

illico TV's partner channels do not always possess Internet broadcast rights for certain programs. This means they have the legal obligation to block access to this content. In such cases, a notification will be displayed to inform customers of the situation.

The HD channels in my TV package are not all accessible for viewing in HD in the illico App. Why?

Unfortunately, the channels currently offered in HD on illico TV cannot all be broadcast in HD in the illico App because our partners do not possess Internet broadcast rights in HD for all of their programming. Since our objective is to offer the best image quality to our customers, we integrate HD quality into the illico App’s channels and content whenever broadcast rights allow it.

I would like to add a channel to my TV package.

The ico_abonnement_black symbol indicates that a channel is not part of your package. To add it, tap on the icon and follow the steps displayed on screen, or visit the Television section of the Videotron Customer Centre.

I would like to order paid content

It is possible to order paid content on Android devices. During the rental period, you can continue watching previously viewed content on any device capable of displaying the content. To avoid unauthorized orders, you must re-enter your authentication information if more than two hours have elapsed since you first entered your password.

How can I order paid content?

To order paid content, access the content page, then select the screen on which you would like to watch the content. You must then enter your password to confirm the order.

For how long will I have access to the content I paid for?

The duration of the rental depends on the kind of content that was ordered. Nevertheless, the rental period begins the moment the order is confirmed.

How is paid content billed?

The amount due for any paid content ordered will automatically be added to your Videotron bill.
