        Not yet, we're still working out packages. Haven't received all pricing information and confirmation about standalone or not from providers for some channels. We're working through it. Please check later today.

            I think Matt just mentioned it..

            "please check later today" meaning likely closer to 5p or later.

              Update:

              Unfortunately it doesn't look like we will be able to post changes for Theme Packs / UChoose today, as some pricing and contractual agreements have not yet been finalized and this is preventing us from offering some channels in the way we would like. Need a few days to sort out last remaining details and finalize arrangements. Apologies for the inconvenience, I know many of you have been waiting patiently for March 1 and we've tried our best to have everything in place. You should expect all channels to be available in either UChoose or Theme Packs in the coming days.

                Hi Frank,

                Premium Basic, Basic, and Skinny base TV subscriptions will be staying the same. What is changing is that all channels will be available in either Theme Pack, or individually in our UChoose store. This is important because previously, if you had Skinny, there was no way to add channels like AMC or TSN without upgrading to a higher package (Basic or Premium Basic). Moving forward, you will be able to add these channels to Skinny, either individually or as part of a theme pack.

                  Thanks for the update Matt.

                    Ah, I see now

                    You may be able to get close to what you're after with Skinny and some addons soon though - just depends how many channels in PB you can live without. These new changes will give consumers more choice and flexibility then before. I think you'll like what we have planned.

                          Would love to see the elimination of theme packs. Pick and pay for exactly what you want and nothing more

                            Sadly because the broadcasters don't HAVE to provide them on their own until December, I have a feeling we may not see a true PICK AND PAY until that time..

                            I'm not sure why they can't just offer it now to be honest.. but sadly Vmedia can only do what their agreements allow under the CRTC rules.

                              Are we anticipating an update this week or something more likely into next week?
