Hello Jayzino

Rogers will be launching it April 1st. We all will get free preview of it until June 30th. As for the channel? I guess they will release that info before April 1st or we will just find it on the channel listing Guide. Look at the link below from the Rogers site..

Hello Jayzino

It will be a permanent channel but its a free preview for everyone until June. After that you will i guess have to pay for the channel or it will come in the up packages. This is something to ask when Rogers releases the channel to us as no other info other then the info i posted above in the link shows.

So I realized the free preview isn't on those regular digital Cisco boxes.      Smiley Mad

Hello Jayzino

You might need to have a HD Box or a package that needs HD channels. Call into Rogers & see what they say.

The channel should work on SD

Re: FXX

from another forum, people are saying they have it on 64 and 81..

Which generally will put it out of the range of the DTA.

the DTA was really only designed to provide the channels which fall under a BASIC package.

Same here in the Woodstock area.

 

I also get FXX free preview on channel 17 on the SA8300SD and HD, but the description only says "free preview" so I have to guess what it is from the content and logo. With the DTA50, I see some French channel on 17.

 

That's the annoying part about free previews on 17 (I think that used to be an Erie PA channel here). It doesn't tell you what you're watching or what channel it's being broadcast on.
