In Quebec, for cable there's only videotron and cogeco available, afaik.
My parents live close to Morin-Heights and my in-laws live in St-Sauveur
and there's no cable available where they live. They all use satellite.
But if by any chance there's cable in Mont Tremblant it would have to be
Cogeco. The best thing to do is to call Cogeco and find out if they
offer cable for your address.
