Quebec-based wireless carrier Videotron has announced Club illico, their streaming media service, is now included with new mobile plan subscriptions, as part of a promotion.
Videotron says recent surveys have suggested 85% of Canadian Francophones with smartphones aged 18 to 34 have reported to watching streaming video on mobile devices in the past month, instead of traditional television.
The wireless carrier, a subsidiary of Quebecor, says this new promotion will allow it “to stand out from the competition.”
“Today our mobile devices are much more than mere communication tools,” notes Bertrand Hébert, Vice President, Marketing at Videotron, in a press release. “We use our phones to stay in touch, to keep up with the news, to listen to music, to shop and to be entertained. Videotron understands that mobile devices are a fantastic platform for accessing all kinds of content. This new initiative will make our customers’ lives easier and meet a real need.”
Videotron says new and existing subscribers will be able to access Club illico mobile, “when they subscribe to a new plan.” Next, they need to also sign up for Customer Centre with their 12-digit account number from their invoice in hand, download the illico iOS (or Android) app, then login using their Customer Centre username and password.
Looking at Videotron’s wireless plans that include Club illico, they start from $35.95 per month with 500MB data in their Basic plans. Canada and US bordless plans do not include Club illico.
The promo goes until January 10, 2018. Let us know if you’re going to jump on this.
