As usual, the rebranding is due to money; probably not enough coming and more than they want going out. Ad space is what specialty channels are all about.
I got nothing better to do so I emailed Shaw Media telling them what I thought of the new channel and asked why the change. Now I know it won't do anything to bring back TV Tropolis or anything better than Dtour but I had to tell them what I thought anyways.
Seriously ??? With all the depression is this world, TVTropolis was the only Channel that made anybody laugh. The old shows, Fraser, Roseanne, Everyone Loves Raymond, King of Queens, Golden Girls, 3rd Rock from the Sun, 70 Show, Married with Children, Friends and do I need to list anymore of FANTASTIC SHOWS !!!
Why do we need anymore fake TV for the world to try to live up too or get depressed over ? Rogers will start to lose customers, maybe me as well.... This will make me think about returning my PVR as well costing Rogers money $$$$$$$
I use to PVR these shows and watch them at my convince.. Now, really no need for this PVR/expense anymore.
Can we as customers ask ? WHY WOULD THEY CHANGE ????? Do the customers not have an opinion ? There are enough reality shows out there, I don t remember a survey going around ??????
So so sad
I understand now, do not like it but get it... Rebrand ? Gee, have they looked at what is out there now, what they are replacing it with ?
Maybe it's a sign of advancing age, but I find most tv programs now to be a waste of time. We watch more TVO and PBS now than anything, especially since we're analog and have lost pretty much all channels after 42 Discovery. I'm dumbfounded that out of the remaining 35-40 channels there is rarely anything on worth watching. Adding 200 more crappy chanels won't improve anything and will only cost me more money. The only good regular stuff on is Longmire, Heck(!) on Wheels, and Ripper Street. The only worthwhile sitcom is Big Bang Theory. So, if the Blue Jays aren't losing on TV, I usually pop in a DVD or watch something on the interweb.
