I absolutely loved the Videoway. When we moved to Illico, sure we had way more channels than we had before (towards the end of the Videoway's life it was pretty much billed as the cheaper version of Illico iirc), sure it had an interactive menu just like the Videoway, and it no longer looks like a NES (fancy graphics!), but, I dunno, it wasn't the same. There was less games, and they ended up being a paid service. Anyway, yeah, the games were probably downloaded each time we wanted to play, I do remember they added/removed/closed for maintainance some once in a while, the main menu overlay changed once in a while, too.Yeah. That was my childhood.
Where did you find that info Gameblabla? It's really hard to find anything about it on the Internet because it was almost completely forgotten.
EDIT: I'M reading that in order to retrieve the games and possibly emulate them or convert them to a different playable format, just a good VHS recording of the beginning would be enough.
Also it was kinda weird to see actual TV image with 8-bits overlays. I wonder if they used a transparent color for the 8-bits overlay then slapped it on top of each TV image? Nonetheless it looked cool.
EDIT: Update, I found this, but sadly all download links are gone. https://web.archive.org/web/20050120154624/http://www.ourfamilysbox.com/~meunierc/tvnw/ But it shows screenshots of the Loto-Québec chess game.
