This is a reminder for our baseball fans! Prior to the season, MLB awarded exclusive broadcast rights of 13 regular season games from across the Major Leagues to YouTube. Those 13 games will not be available on television or through any other streaming service in Canada or the US.
At this time, MLB has selected the July 23rd 2019 (7:00 p.m. ET) game between Cleveland Indians and Toronto Blue Jays.
You can watch the game on YouTube through any connected device. Ignite TV customers can watch the game through the Sports app by selecting the Youtube/MLB tile when the game is live. They can also use Voice Commands on their remote by saying “MLB YouTube”.
Sportsnet will continue to deliver these games to fans along the Sportsnet Radio Network, including on Sportsnet 590 The FAN, Sportsnet 960 The FAN and Sportsnet 650.
On July 10, 2019, we introduced Edge Financing. It’s an affordable and easy way for customers to pay off their device over 24 or 36 months! We’ve also renamed the 2-year subsidy tiers on our plans. Instead of Premium, Premium+ and Ultra, they’re now called Edge 20 Tab, Edge 30 Tab and Edge 40 Tab.
Edge Financing is available online, in Rogers stores and by contacting customer service.
Edge Financinglets you finance a device or phone for $0 down, 0% interest, with equal monthly payments over 24 or 36 months. It’s so similar to Easy Pay that it’s replacing it! All the processes are the same as Easy Pay, except for a few eligibility rules:
The 36 month option is only available for phones
Edge Financing is not available for:
Certified Pre-Owned devices
Customers who finance their Unison device(s) on the same telephone number
Wireless Home Phone
You need to get a Rogers Infinite Edge Financing plan.
You no longer need to have 1-month tenure to finance a device.
You are now able to finance devices over $900, there is no longer a limit for how much can be financed.
Note: Customers who were on Easy Pay before July 10, 2019 will remain on Easy Pay (no impact for them).
Taxes and fees: We apply all applicable taxes for the full retail price of the device on the first bill, along with a Setup Service Fee. We don’t apply taxes to the monthly device payment.
Voluntary Payments: You can make additional voluntary payments towards the device balance by contacting Customer Service. These voluntary payments reduce the monthly financing payment, not the number of months remaining on your financing.
Device Balance: You will be charged the full Edge Financing balance if you:
Cancel or port out your number (including non-payment)
Perform a Transfer of Responsibility
Want to move from an Edge Financing plan to a subsidy-based plan (Edge Tabs)
Upgrade during your term
Switch from 24 to 36 months financing or vice versa
Comparing your options
You now have multiple pricing options when you sign up with Rogers:
No Tab (Bring Your Own Device): No commitment or term contract needed. Month-to-month agreement.
Edge Financing: 24 or 36 month financing with $0 down
2-year terms (Edge tabs): Pay more for the device price upfront but lower monthly payments (upfront price can be discounted during promotional periods).
Upfront Edge: Low upfront cost and the customer returns the device to the store at the end of their agreement (available on Edge 30 and 40 in select channels).
New Simpler Tabs Are Here! Introducing Edge Tabs!
We’ve also renamed the Rogers Infinite tiers to make things simpler. We call them Edge Tab plans and they clearly indicate the monthly device amount.
