Changes to Ignite TV Channels in Packages and Theme Packs

I'm starting this thread to give us a place where changes to the Ignite TV channel lineups can be announced and discussed.

 

Rogers already has pages that show Free Previews and New Channels but I have not been able to find any pages that list planned/upcoming changes to the default channel lineups for Ignite TV Packages, Theme Packs or the Flex Channels that we can choose from.

 

For example, my latest bill contains a note informing me that Fox Sports Racing will no longer be part of my package effective June 14, 2020 but will still be available to subscribers as part of the Adventure Theme Pack.  However, it still shows as an included Flex Channel in Premier and an optional Flex Channel in Popular.

 

@CommunityHelps  Are you aware of any other upcoming changes that you can share here so that we can also plan accordingly?  Thanks!

Yeah...I think they're still working thru the changes.  Having said that, these new bundles are more expensive across the board.  Granted, they all include more channels than their older equivalents, and they all now include the local US channels, but we're still talking at least $20-25 more per month for channels I don't particularly need or watch.  This might be the final nail in the coffin I was looking for to finally drop TV altogether and go with internet only once my current promo ends (I've been thinking of doing this for a while).

I'm here a lot

I see I now have an offer to switch out my existing Flex 10 bundle for the new Popular TV package. Pretty good price if one wants all those channels, which I don't. I really like the idea of the flex channels and am very disappointed that it seems that this approach will be dropped. And I don't understand why  CTV Ottawa doesn't show anywhere, but I assume it's still a bit of a work in progress. They may already be messing with my current bundle by dropping the number of flex channels down to 9 from 10.

I plan to stick around

Did Rogers change CityNews 24/7 again? Since this morning I only get the east feed (ch. 100), the west feed (ch, 108) is gone. Last week they where both gone for a day, but both back the next day.

Also I spotted 3 channels that are marked has "Flex Channel" on the channel list, but don't show up on the Flex page, CNN International, The Africa Channel and Fox Sports Racing.

Re: Changes to Ignite TV Channels in Packages and Theme Packs

Good day @ReneHache,

 

Thanks for your post! CityNews 24/7 East & West were on free preview until October 31st, 2023.

 

Since November 1st, 2023, we no longer offer Flex Channels as part of our Ignite TV plans. Existing Flex Channels customers will continue to keep them as part of their current plan.

 

Were you looking to add CNN International, Africa Channel and Fox Sports Racing to your current channel lineup?

 

Let us know how we can further assist you!
