Cinépop is a Canadian French language Category B pay television channel owned by Bell Media. Cinépop broadcasts films from the 1950s to the present.

History[edit]

In November 2000, Astral Media, through its subsidiary Astral Télé Réseaux inc., was granted approval by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) to launch a television channel called Cinémania, described as "a national French-language Category 2 pay television service including a diverse selection of popular Canadian and international general-interest feature-length repertory fiction movies."[1]

The channel was launched on November 1, 2005 as Cinépop (stylized as cinépop until 2008) focusing on feature films from the 1950s to the present.[2]

In November 2008, Cinépop introduced a new look including a new logo and on-screen graphics.

Cinépop HD[edit]

On January 28, 2011, Cinépop launched "Cinépop HD", a high definition feed simulcasting its standard definition feed.[3]
