Re: Can someone explain flex channels?

But the issue is that the flex channels don't include sports channels I would like to watch, and that I currently receive through the Popular package. Therefore, to replicate what I get now will cost more under the flex program.

Re: Can someone explain flex channels?

@jimtorrance  You have to look beyond the price/contents of the package when comparing Ignite TV's "Popular" package and Digital TV's counterpart, and the other offerings from Rogers' competitors.  The other thing that most people are not aware of is that capabilities such as live broadcast, look-back (the ability to watch recently broadcast shows as if they were live), on-demand, PVR recording, the ability to fast-forward through streams, access to "Go" apps, streaming rights/capabilities for mobile apps, etc. all factor into the licensing costs, and there is also usually a tiered per-subscriber pricing structure based on the number of active subscribers for the channel and/or related channels.  So, the package pricing and selection of channels that go into a package involve extensive analysis and modelling, and due to the technical differences between Ignite TV and Digital TV, the package pricing (and as a result, the channel lineup, including the Flex Channels that are offered) will be different.

You can find that information by going to https://www.rogers.com/web/consumer/ignite-bundles/channels

 

Which Ignite TV bundle are you subscribed to?

 

T+E is available as a Flex Channel in most bundles (which you can exchange for free) and is also available as a standalone channel for $4.00/month

Thanks for explanation.  Wonder why Rogers does not post something like this.  Everybody must wonder.
