I'm pretty sure we can get AMC programming in HD format On Demand, by the way. Not the same as actually watching it, of course.
Bell has exclusive rights for AMC HD. That means Rogers may NEVER get it unless Bell agrees for Rogers to carry it. I doubt that will happen. For us to get AMC HD, we will need to keep contacting Rogers and Bell until we get it.
Rogers has posted on their Redboard site that not only are they in negotiations to continue carrying AMC, but that "HD is part of our negotiations." I really do not believe that Bell has ever had exclusive rights to carry AMC HD. Yes, they advertise that AMC HD is exclusive to Bell, but only because right now it is (in Ontario). They will obviously have to change their advertising if Rogers also negotiates a deal with AMC for their HD feed as well.
