Telus to Honour Black History Month by Donating Full Cost of Movie Rentals

To mark this Black History Month, Telus will donate the full cost of rentals from the Celebrating Black History collection, up to $10,000 to The Black Health Alliance, a community-led charity working for Black communities in Canada.


The Celebrating Black History collection is available to all Optik and Pik TV customers through the Telus Video on Demand library from February 1 to March 1, and features a curated selection of films featuring Black artists and honouring Black history including award-winning titles such as Just Mercy, Harriet, I Am Not Your Negro, and Selma.

Moreover, Optik and Pik TV customers can also access a curated selection of free titles from Telus originals, STORYHIVE, and YouTube playlists available on Community Connections, channel 345.

“Black History Month is an important opportunity to learn about and reflect upon the stories, experiences and accomplishments of Black leaders, past and present. TELUS is proud to support the important work of the Black Health Alliance and to amplify the voices and powerful stories of Black artists and producers through our curated Celebrating Black Historycollection on Optik TV. We stand united in promoting equity, fairness, and systemic change across Canada and well beyond.”

Rentals cost between $5 and $7. The full list of featured titles in the Celebrating Black History collection can be found On Demand through Optik and Pik TV.
