@HonestOriginal 

Glad you are enjoying Ignite TV! It has a few quirks but I'm also impressed with it and wouldn't go back to Digital TV/Nextbox.

It DOES NOT have everything, NO DD 5.1 surround on cloud recordings!

I guess it depends where you're coming from when you say it does "everything". There are certain features that Rogers Digital Cable does that Ignite does not.  Some of these features are missed by some people.  Some are not.  Here's a link to that discussion.

One item I forgot to include in that post is the lack of a clock on the Ignite box, which some people miss and need to find a workaround or alternative.  I know I also often look at my Digital Cable box for the time, so I would also need to find an alternative.

The dreaded end of promo is here, and I have to gather up my strength to call Rogers, and find out what they can offer for home phone, cable and internet (I'm on digital).  Will they force me to switch to ignite?  I definitely want to stay with digital.

@dfwm : Rogers will not force you to IgniteTV, however, there may be a financial incentive relative to Legacy Digital Cable.

Re: Should I Make the Switch to Ignite TV?

I've had Ignite tv for almost 2 years now and love it. You will not be forced to move over to ignite but you will most likely not get a discount on the digital package and end up paying more. Ignite tv packages for cable, Internet and home phone start at 124.99+tx and go up from there depending on the internet speed and cable channels you choose. Why not take a look at the website and see what your favourite channels and internet speed will cost you? Why pay more if you don't have too

Greetings @dfwm

 

Welcome to the Rogers Community Forums! Congratulations are in order as it's your very first post! 🙌 I hope you're staying safe and sound. 😊 I've actually had my Ignite TV bundle for eons now and it's been fantastic!

 

It's a completely different experience from our legacy digital cable packages as it's a wireless-based service. Every bundle comes inclusive with an Ignite-Voice Activated Remote, Ignite Cloud PVR, one Set Top Box, and an Ignite Home Phone which is optional. With that being said, if you are still not sold on the idea of Ignite TV, we can definitely review your current services with us to see what we can do! 👍

 

If you can kindly send us a message at @CommunityHelps we'd be more than happy to have a look into this for you. In the event that you're unfamiliar with our private messaging system, feel free to Click Here.

 

Looking forward to hearing from you!

I am also a former Rogers Digital TV customer (and former Bell Fibe TV customer) and my experience with Ignite TV has been VERY positive since I switched back in spring, 2019.

 

@RogersJo 's comments were spot on.  Ignite TV provides a very different experience, and it has many nice features that are not present on the legacy platform.

 

I haven't been to a Rogers store since the COVID-19 outbreak.  Hopefully they still have an Ignite TV display where you can try the service out for yourself to see how you like it.

Our internet connection in our specific area is awful, always has been, for decades, and I'm not ready to switch to ignite right now.  Thank you @-G-    I'm glad to hear you love it, and it's working out for you!
