As we know in january the sportsone channel is going to be under the sport pack (that means that the free period its gone).
do you know if it's possible only to add this channel? not all the package, only sportsone channel.
I just checked it today and I have the VIP pack. The info on the screen says the free period has ended, but I still get it.
So Sportsnet One, which shows quite a few Bluejays games, is now only available in a package deal with a bunch of channels you probably don't want. It just keeps getting better and better.
Yes, it seems that way re: bundling of services. I thought there was a move underfoot to force companies like Rogers, Bell, etc. to allow us to select just the channels we want, not the ones they force us to pay for when we only want a couple of channels in a given package. There are hundreds of channels on Rogers cable, and I watch maybe 15 of them tops. I do subscribe to the Digital VIP package, which seems like the best deal, depending on what you like to watch, of course. My main interest is The Movie Network and HBO, but the package has a lot of other things in it. One thing I've always thought was strange is that TSN HD isn't availabel unless you subscribe to a package with US TV stations. I get all of the Sportsnet HD channels with the VIP package, but no TSN HD or TSN 2 HD, although they are available in SD. Weird.
In order to get TSN or TSN 2 in HD, you can either add HD Specialty pack (provided you subsribe to a minimum of Digital Plus), or upgrade to HD VIP.
As for Sportsnet One, my info shows it included w/ any VIP package, or can be added as a standalone channel for 2.79
Yes, I know I can subscribe to yet another "package" to get TSN HD, but why should I have to? Oh, wait, Sportsnet belongs to Rogers and TSN doesn't. Who would've thought? I already pay Rogers a ridiculous amount of money per month for cable, Internet, and wireless. I don't need any more packages. I also know that the annual letter will soon arrive in the mail telling me what a great customer I am and advising me of the latest round of rate increases.
