The 2019 FIBA Basketball World Cup is taking place from August 31 to September 15, 2019 in China.
The streaming service DAZN has bought the exclusive rights to carry all FIBA games this season. This affects all Canadian sports fans who watch through their TV subscriptions, and not just Rogers customers.
Since DAZN owns the broadcast rights in Canada, you will not be able to watch the 2019 FIBA Basketball World Cup games with your television subscription. You’ll need to subscribe to DAZN to stream the games. Please visit www.dazn.ca for more details.
Canada’s first game is against Australia on September 1, 2019, at 3:30 a.m. ET.

As you may recall, we recently announced We're Adding Automatic Band Steering to Select Modems for Easy WiFi Optimization to optimize and simplify home WiFi performance. Great news, as of July 25th, the Band steering firmware roll out to Hitron AC family modems is complete. This firmware update will be the first that enables Band Steering by default as part of our easy connect on-boarding flow for our Hitron “AC” modems.
Band Steering will allow you to create a single home Wi-Fi network that automatically places your devices on the best available band. As some of you already know the Rogers Ignite Modem (Arris/Technicolour XB6) already supports this amazing feature which helps to ensure you get a more consistent and stable Wi-Fi experience!
Both CODA and AC family of modems support Band steering today, but the firmware Version 220.127.116.11 will bring “automatic” band steering to only the Hitron “AC” models.
NOTE: For CODA modems, Band steering can be enabled either through modem settings (192.168.0.1) or MyWiFi app.
When is Band Steering turned on?
For updated modems, band steering will be enabled as part of the Easy Connect flow during initial setup or when the modem is factory reset. This means that you will not see a “WiFiName” & “WiFiName-5G” network when Easy Connect is finished; just a single network with the name and password they provided.
On July 11, 2019, a new Smart Home Monitoring (SHM) package was made available – Smart Home Monitoring Automate! Stay connected and protected from anywhere with live video streaming, real-time alerts and customized controls. It’s the smart home made easy.
Available exclusively for Rogers Internet customers, SHM Automate allows you to easily manage and control your smart devices and self-monitor your home.
What You Should Know:
No Touchpad: There is no Touchpad with the Automate package. You can use the Smart Home Monitoring app and new plug-in Smart Hub to control the camera, lighting, and sensors in your home.
Self-Monitored: The plan does not include professional 24/7 Central Monitoring. Instead, you will get alerts sent directly to your device via email or text message (depending on your alert settings).
With the SHM Automate Hardware Kit, you get $299.96 of hardware for $0 upfront. The kit is only available on a 2-year term (standard Early Cancellation Fees apply). You cannot remove hardware from the kit, but you can certainly add additional hardware to best suit your needs.

The technician will be using your device and your SHM mobile app to complete the installation and setup.
