RockDétente is a network of French-language adult contemporary radio stations broadcasting throughout Quebec, Canada. They are owned by Astral Media.

All RockDétente stations broadcast in the same markets as Astral's contemporary hit radio network, NRJ, although that network also has a few stations in markets not served by RockDétente.

Although the stations usually play mostly French adult contemporary music, it would mix in English music as well, while like rival network Rythme FM, would also play classic dance and disco songs, more than any other adult contemporary station in North America. Some softer rap songs would be played on the network, although they would mainly be songs played on hot adult contemporary radio stations in Canada. Less oldies/classic hits content would be played on the network, but almost all of the newer songs would be played on rival network Rythme FM.




Astral also programs a satellite radio channel for broadcast on Sirius Canada and the American Sirius Satellite Radio, using the same format as the RockDétente stations but branded as RockVelours ("Velvet Rock"). The channel was originally located on channel 192, but moved to its current channel 88 in June of 2008. Its logo was also updated to include its current channel number.

This channel is programmed separately from the terrestrial stations, and is hosted by Mélanie Gagné and Jean-François Fillion.
