FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Halifax, NS – Consumers now have access to transformational choice and flexibility with the availability of Eastlink’s new ‘TV Channel Exchange’.
A whole new way for consumers to personalize their TV channel line-up, ‘TV Channel Exchange’ enables consumers to swap out one or more TV channels they don’t want in their TV lineup with channels they do want to watch from over 150 selections.
"Consumer interests vary widely and they have been very clear about their sensitivity to pay for TV channels they don’t want,” says Eastlink CEO Lee Bragg. “Younger families may want to swap out channels for more educational and family programming while empty nesters may want to swap out children’s channels for lifestyle, history, or travel-oriented programming.”
Ideally aligned with the “watch what and when I want, and only pay for what I watch” expectations of today’s consumer, Eastlink’s ‘TV Channel Exchange’ includes over 150 individual channels across all genres including family, lifestyle, music, sports, movies, French, news & information, international, and more.
“Consumers are viewing more video content than ever before across multiple types of screens and services including Eastlink Stream,” says Bragg. “The ability to enable our customers to personalize their own channel lineup is a direct result of feedback from many of our loyal customers.”
Swapping channels is easy. Eastlink customers who subscribe to either the Essentials+ or Maestro bundle, which includes a TV package that comes with 50 popular channels, can simply log into their secure e-care account, review the channels they already have, and then swap out one or more channels giving them their own, personal channel lineup, within minutes.
Eastlink’s ‘TV Channel Exchange” launches in Halifax, Sudbury and Alberta, effective today, with other markets across Canada to come online early in 2017.

Additionally, Eastlink customers can complement any TV package, with individual TV channel selections from over 150 Personal Picks, which can be done easily online.
