Why? What do the Olympics have to do with Canadians getting the inferior CNBC World feed instead of CNBC America during the Games? There's information missing here.
I'm guessing that - because there's probably a fair amount of Olympic coverage on CNBC America right now, and NBC does not have the Olympic rights in Canada (that's the CBC) - CNBC America is blocked during the Olympics.
Interesting... Just turned to Rogers Channel 17 HDNBC and NBC's Olympic coverage is on. (Definitely the NBC Peacock in the top right corner of the screen and definitely U.S. announcers.)
Same in Newmarket Ontario. Called Rogers to complain after being transferred 4 times and a 45 minutes wait. Got someone who said there was no issue with CNBC and sold me on getting Bloomberg business. Rogers customer care stinks...
woo hoo - it looks like we actually made a difference.
Great to see that common sense has prevailed!
Fixed for me too, but the audio is a little weird. Mostly its fine, but some commercials have one of the audio channels muted so that you can't hear what people are saying. Is this just me??
It's not just you - but it's not constant. I find that in some (but only some) U.S. commercials, it's like one of the audio tracks (the one with the voice) has been dropped: All you hear are the background noises. It's actually a kinda nice change!
