New Channel: ROD1 (Brampton ch 115)

Hello all,

I was browsing my guide on Sunday and noticed a new channel - 115 (ROD1).  Very interesting - it has guide data and program information, but appears to access a Rogers On-Demand (ROD) movie directly. 

 

Switching to this channel brings up a window for "Ghostbusters (2016) (HD)", and gives three options: Order, Preview, Cancel - the same thing shown if ordering the movie from channel 100. 

 

Is anyone else seeing this, or is this a strange test being carried out only in my area?

Hello @57,

You may have read about this here in my other thread - I created a new topic to spark discussion. 

 

I find this new method interesting - Rogers can start creating channels which re-direct to thier most popular ROD content, making things easier to find for seniors or people who don't feel like digging into channel 100 for new movies.

 

EDIT: You found the post while I was typing the above.

Yes, it's here in Toronto too. I read a post on this very recently, but I can't find it with the usual searches - strange.

 

Edit - found it - it was your post yesterday.
