How to tune in MAtv?
Clients of Videotron can tune in MAtv on channel 9 or 609 in HD. In addition, when logging on Videotron's Customer Centre, all clients of Videotron (television, Internet, mobile or illico Club) can view MAtv live and on-demand thanks to the illico app for iPad and Android, and through illico.tv at the following address: https://illicoweb.videotron.com/chaines/MAtv
Is there a difference between channel 9 programming and the programming on channel 609 HD?
No: both channels 9 and 609 show firstly programs produced by local MAtv station and by community television affiliated (TCA) to MAtv, then complete their programmation - when local programs are not presented - with shows produced by other community televisions of the MAtv network.
I would like to watch MAtv but I am not a Videotron client. Is there another way to view MAtv programs?
If you are not a Videotron client, you can still view some of MAtv complete shows on matv.ca. On the other hand, you could have full access to MAtv just by becoming a member of the illico Club of Videotron. For only $9.99 per month, this membership allows you to watch live MAtv Montreal's local programming as well as Quebec's on-demand, plus watching movies and series unlimited on the web, with illico.tv as well as with the illico app on iPad and Android tablets!
