Re: BBC Canada HD

Are there any updates to the status of broadcasting BBC Canada in HD?  Does Rogers monitor and respond to concerns and questions from customers on these forums?

Re: BBC Canada HD

Hello @JCC3,

 

It's definitely a bonus to be able to view content in HD quality! It can often make for a better entertainment experience. 🙂

 

I regret to advise that there haven't been any updates on if and when BBC Canada will be made available in HD. If we hear anything, we will let the Community know. You may also continue to keep an eye on Rogers.com for any updates as well.

 

Thank you,

RogersLaura

Re: BBC Canada HD

This is 2019. Today we expect HD resolution on everything we view on TV. SD is only acceptable on little kitchen TVs or 2" smartphone screens. Providing only SD is truly penny-pinching.

Re: BBC Canada HD

If it's available on Ignite, why can't we see it in HD on Digital Cable?  Rogers??? @RogersLaura ???

Re: BBC Canada HD

I guess digital tv has limitation of bandwidth but IPTV doesn’t (it is Internet server based). I can see more HD content on Ignite TV like BBC World News HD, CNN International HD, CNBC HD, MSNBC HD

Re: BBC Canada HD

That's kind of ridiculous. Rogers had to get a licensing agreement to provide the HD content via the ignite platform. I guess they want me to get rid of my 4k pvr cable boxes that I pay crazy rental fees for.

 

Mind you ignite in general is junk and very unstable. Go figure.
