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


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.

On March 4, 2013, the Competition Bureau approved the takeover of Astral Media by Bell Media.[3] Bell filed a new application for the proposed takeover with the CRTC on March 6, 2013;[4] the CRTC approved the merger on June 27, 2013,[5] effectively turning over control of Cinépop to Bell.

Cinépop HD

On January 28, 2011, Cinépop launched "Cinépop HD", a high definition feed simulcasting its standard definition feed.[6]
