This is either a different channel or offered only in Toronto. The Ottawa lineup does not have Biography Channel. Under the customary channel numbers (91/271) VICELAND is listed now. I asked because I thought it was re-bundled in one of the new packages and wasn't available as a single pick anymore.
57 provided the correct answer... (While waiting for replies I turned to my best friend. According to Google the Biography Channel was dumped by Rogers in favour of Viceland.)
Incredible! Not a word about the switch on my Rogers Bill. But maybe if it's a free preview, they don't have to tell you.
How can a "Biography" channel be rebranded as "Viceland's programming consists primarily of lifestyle-oriented documentaries and reality series aimed towards millennials [yuck], directed in Vice's trademark style of "character-driven documentaries" and reading more on Wikipedia, it gets worse. I wonder if it's connected to the left wing website, http://www.vice.com/en_ca/ Glad it's not something I'm paying for. On second thought, my cable bill just went up.
