FOX Sports Racing

I Plan to Stick Around

Today I turn on channel 409 Fox Sports Racing, and it says "Not Authorized"
I'll ASSUME this means the 'free preview' is over now, and it ISN'T included in my current package...

I would like to thank Rogers for keeping me informed of this channel's status and that I would be loosing it as of today; and what package I would have to buy in order to KEEP the channel! 😞

Thanks @RogersAliciaG.
Too bad it's not a stand alone channel.
I'm not about to pay another $13+ to VIP, just to get ONE channel

I'm Here A Lot

I'm sick and tired of Rogers raising the price and taking channels away. I used to have the Speed Channel and now nothing, I can't get Fox Racing unless I stream it (at risk of a virus) or pay them more money to upgade to VIP. We don't even get cp24! This is a channel I can get by sticking a paper clip in the back of an old TV again I would have to pay more $$$$ for something that should be included in the most basic cable package.

We have been with Rogers for over 10 years now and it it time for them to go. I'm looking into Bell Vibe and highly doubt I will ever be back at Rogers and will be advising all my friends to do the same

 

Good Bye

@pboc so what package do you have? Basic Cable? I'm afraid that auto racing (except maybe NASCAR) appeals to more sophisticated customers than your stick-and-ball games found on basic cable. The cable package model is designed to squeeze the maximum amount of money out of customers. But $25 Skinny Basic plus Pick & Pay is on its way. The companies just don't want to show their hand and reveal their P&P pricing to the competition. Maybe you'll be able subscribe to Skinny Basic plus FOX Sports Racing and a couple others at a reasonable cost, but my guess is that VIP may still be cheaper.

Bell also does yearly, etc price raises on their packages.. so you wont be escaping that.
And if my memory serves me right, when speed channel changed (the channel owner changed it and its content, not the carriers), Bell droped it as well.
Bell does not carry Fox Racing either.

Not saying not to switch.. you need to do what is best for you.
But I urge you to do ALL your research, etc before hand...
The grass always seems greener on the other side... but isn't always so.
