I thought you were kidding Patr1 and then I just saw an article on this in the newspaper. When you think about what they could be giving us and they give us 24/7 spinning chickens - unbelievable!

Re: Congratulations on the CHICKEN channel!

This channel is used in a promotion for Swiss Chalet and will only be available in Toronto for a couple of weeks.

@RogersHemal I read that it will be in Ontario for a few months... I'm getting hungry just thinking about it...

Hi Chris,

 

You're right, the channel is scheduled to be on the air until late May of this year.

 

Channel 208 is a paid marketing initiative from Swiss Chalet.

 

For more information, please check out this Globe and Mail article, here

 

Thanks!

It was funny the first time I was watching it.  But after awhile, it starts getting too repetitive.

The sound is a bit annoying actually... HD would have been nice too...

Rogers is testing to see if a hot signal will pass through their amplifiers.

 

They get enough roasting from their customers and wanted to give some back.

While I understand the world of marketing can be ruthless sometimes, personally I just find a dedicated channel to a repeating video of chickens roasting to advertise one company to just be completely obnoxious on behalf of both Rogers and Swiss Chalet.  Congrats, Rogers on the most annoying feature I've see on the cable service yet lol Maybe Molson will pay you to show a two four sitting on a table for months on end if you're lucky.

The most **bleep** use of bandwidth I've seen since Reality television began.

Well at least it is better than buzzard-in-a-box, at least in Canada.

If someone is willing to pay for it and it doesn't break any laws then i don't see why not.. Sure it's a 24/7 comercial.. Same as every website out there... Just glad they haven't started running the commercials in the wide screen portion of my tv shows yet... <shhhh don't tell the networks>
