This better not go through I swear... We overpay so much and for what? Bandwidth limits? crappy channels?
Dropping Rogers and moving elsewhere if this goes through.
Guys.. Rogers is NOT dropping AMC. They just posted that on their Facebook page..
This is pretty much the only reason why i subscribe to cable in the first place.... I'm already looking at other providers for the HD content. If they take the channel completely away there is no reason for me to have any loyalty to Rogers at all. I have four services from them and i will change them all if this was to happen.... even if we dont get HD AMC soon.
Really???? Are you crazy? Thousands have posted on FB concerning this ridiculous decision. I, for one, will be switching cable/phone/Internet if this does occur. This is not a threat.....it's a fact!
Rogers and AMC are in the midst of negotiations (it's always about money) -- so Rogers could lose AMC. It would be their choice not to pay for the channel. Regardless of what Facebook says, it could happen.
If it does - my services are gone. Mine, my mom's, my husband's phone, my mother-in-law --- we will all cancel all of our non-contract services and Rogers will lose over $1k per month. And my network of friends are all zombie people. (I am lucky to count among my friends organizers of zombie walks, genre fans and filmmakers and more!) There will be a mass migration.
If Bell was smart they'd start promoting that they have AMC HD and offer signing discounts for zombie-lovers.

Rogers has posted a comment and has reassured that they have no intention to drop AMC....so lets talk about AMC HD;).
Just talked to Rogers and I was told it is AMC leaving Rogers .. Sounds like bull to me. It's the only channel I watch- guess another company will be happy for my business!
Every once in a while, cable networks renegotiate contracts with the providers. When the negotiations do not go thier way, they try to rile up the customers as leverage to get more out of the cable company. if the cable company pays more than is comfortable, the price of our service goes up. To be fair to everyone, we should also write AMC that they would be losing customers as well if they try to drive our prices up. I believe that a solid performer like AMC deserves more money for the quality original programming they produce, but not if it will hit the customers pocketbook. So, Rogers is not dropping the channel, it is more likely that they refused the first demand put on the table.
