Summer 2013 Brings Fresh Faces to Our Specialty Networks!

Astral TVPlus is already gearing up for summer, and our specialty networks are ready with new episodes of your favourite shows, as well as 15 refreshing new series – including the highly anticipated arrival of Joël Legendre on Canal Vie!

Before we introduce our new shows, we’d like to remind you that summer is a great season for our networks. Last year, they grabbed over one quarter of the market share among key target groups – an increase over summer 2011. In fact, Astral TVPlus is performing better than each of the conventional networks.
