I have the VIP TV package.


That is what I have. It's an awesome legacy package. The only one more awesome would have been VIP Ultimate. As far as I can see there are only two 4K channels, 987 and 992, which is pay per view. I don't know if you can add those to VIP. You would have to switch to one of the new packages to do that and lose most of the channels you have with VIP.

1. If you already subscribe to the (sports) channels that you wish to see in 4K in your current package, then, I believe, all you'll need to pay is the $10/month, which is waived for the first year.  However, see point 4.

 

2. If you do not subscribe to those sports channels (SportsNet, TSN), then you'll have to first subscribe to those sports channels in your package and then pay the $10/mo (waived for first year). 

 

3. I'm not sure about how the 4K  movie channel works - if they're PPV, then you PPV.

 

4. If you're currently on a VIP package, that is no longer available, and you'll need to purchase the new package that you want, which will cost you more and get you fewer channels.  I'm sticking to my VIP Ultimate for as long as I can.  I believe they will not add the 4K option to a grandfathered package, so you need to renegotiate "everything".

Thank you for the info.  Ya, sounds like I should stick with out 4K.  Maybe I will renegotiate after Rogers releases the IPTV Box.

Re: First foray into 4K with Rogers

@Chummy : According to the following FAQ, second dropdown, it's only available in Ontario where there are "Technicolor/Cisco/SA" Boxes. The Motorola areas (Atlantic Canada, Hamilton) do not seem to have 4K at this time.

 

https://www.rogers.com/customer/support/article/nextbox-4k-pvr-faqs

 

Only residents of Ontario (excluding Hamilton) are able to purchase/rent and use the NextBox 4K PVR.

This information is somewhat dated, but I don't believe I've seen anything about 4K in Atlantic Canada.

Re: First foray into 4K with Rogers

There is only 8 or 9 channels in 4k right now according to Rogers: https://www.rogers.com/consumer/tv/4k

perhaps one of them will interest you? as for the other chanenls in your package, none of them broadcast in 2160p at this time

I and others have responded to your various posts which all say roughly the same thing.  I don't know what you want because just because you're a good, long term customer, the 4K offerings are not going to change.  There are some 4K preview channels for you to view for free.
