I am so disappointed with On Demand. There are never any good movies that one would want to watch. It seem that all On Demand has are small budget movies and movies that never made to it to the silver screen.
If I want to see a blockbuster movie I am never able to view that movie via On Demand. If such is the case, why am I paying for a service that is a waste of money?
Rogers has promoted On Demand as an unlimited source to view movies, but that is not the case. On Demand is very limited and filled with low budget films as oppose to DVD rentals. This is very disappointing.
Furthermore, Rogers make no effort of at least making holiday movies like Christmas and Easter available to those who celebrate those holidays with friend and family. Therefore, I must ask, why should my husband pay for unsatisfactory service?
Thanks for your feedback regarding Rogers On Demand. Most new releases, including blockbuster films, are available on Rogers On Demand the same day they are released on DVD. You can find newer films in the “New Releases” folder, or by using the search tool. Current new releases include Ted, The Dark Knight Rises and The Bourne Legacy.
We do have a number of holiday movies, such as Elf and Miracle on 34th Street, available in our Holiday Cheer folder. Again, if you want a quick way to see if your favourite holiday flick is available on Rogers On Demand, you can enter the movie’s title in our search field. We also had Halloween-themed movies available around Halloween.
Along with movies, we also have made full seasons of television series available for our customers to rent. These seasons are of past and present favourites, such as 24, Dexter and Californication.
You can also sign up for text messaging alerts when new movies are released on Rogers On Demand. Simply text

I think i saw Arthur Christmas on there too 🙂
But I think part of what the other two are trying to bring up as well.. is the overall movies.
While yes, new bockbusters movies on there are great.. after 1-2 months, they are GONE from there, and not able to be viewed/rented... compared to like at the old video stores, while it wasnt a new release, you could go to the regular section and still rent it from there.
STILL waiting to see 21 Jump Street and it's April 2013!!
The movie was showing on the Top 10 BUT it wasn't for purchase and now it's not there at all.
I called customer service and was told "hmmm, there must be a problem". No way Sherlock!
I don't appreciate having to go and RENT a movie when I pay for ROD.

Does Rogers have or have they ever thought of offerring a "Movies on Demenad Package", e.g. 10 movies anytime for $39.99. This way we can use anytime and save money, Rogers would make the money on up front purchases, win win?
