Great news!. Hopefully they bring out AMC HD soon as well before Halloween.
Honestly its time Rogers caught up & brought out more HD channels. Customers complained Day & night about this & i am glad to see Rogers stepping up & doing it.
Now all they need it AMC HD & ABC Spark in which i hope they bring out soon!.
As has been said many times before Joey...
Just because a channel is out there, does not mean that everyone can get it no matter what.
Channels are owned by specific other companies (rogers owns some channels, bell owns some, shaw owns some, etc).
There are legal things that need to be drawn up to get channels. Sometimes a channel will be an exclusive to that broadcaster (though this is not the case with AMC). Other times, it could just be, the channel owner, is wanting WAAAAAY too much money for rogers to pay for it, so hence why they are not yet.
And even when/if they do agree to it, its not a flip the switch and its there.. there is all the legal stuff to be worked out and signed over it.. then to provision the feed to rogers, then provision it out to the boxes, etc.
I have no doubt, in time, we will have it and other. In the last 2 months rogers has added 6 HD channels we didnt have before.
