When is Optik TV going to add more international channels?


When will Optik TV cater to other nationalities other than Chinese and Punjabi? Lacking Spanish and Portuguese channels.  Why does Telus lag in this category, when Bell and Rogers have tons of international channels available to their customers...

It will likely be related to demand. There are huge Chinese and Indian communities in western Canada, so it's not surprising there are more channels for them. If users are not letting Telus know there is a demand for those channels, they won't rank high up on the list of channels they'll consider adding.

Perhaps put a suggestion on the ideas page.  Also indicate what Spanish and Portuguese stations.

I noticed the Chinese stations also carry Canadian content which expedited their presence.  Are there Spanish & Portuguese stations with Canadian content?
