Is this a case of monkey see, monkey do? Bell dropped HD NET and now Rogers has announced they are doing the same thing effective November 1, 2011? Why? HD NET has some great programming not found anywhere else. Hopefully there is something that could be done to get Rogers to reconsider.
I can't find any official announcement but there is talk about it on DigitalHome.
I don't really care about the MMA/Fights but will miss the concerts and the "Guys Night In" shows. At least there are other ways to watch the shows that I want (not just the HDNet shows) and Rogers just keeps making it more attractive to cut the cable.
I found the announcement on my latest bill. I think it sucks. It is a part of the HD Specialty Pack. Will Rogers at least replace this station with something else?
Is Rogers dropping their monthly rate if they are dropping a HD channel. Think not. What is their reasoning for dropping this channel? Rogers are putting me another step closer to switching to satellite.
I just checked Shaw Direct programming and HD Net is part of their extra HD bundle $5.99 per month but also includes HD HGTV and other HD channels we don't get with Rogers. There's no talk anywhere on their site of dropping HD Net like there is on this site. I've just emailed them to ask about their programming and when their other services (phone and intenet) are coming to London - will let you know what they say when I get a reply.
This is complete garbage. We are TV, we are the customer, we are the voice, we are the reason ROGERS is doing so well. So that being said, I DEMAND that HDnet remain in my HD line up!!! Please make a complaint and make your voice heard. Call and speak to an agent and tell them what you would like to be done. Pass this message on or someone make a Facebook page and get the word out.
