Just noticed that Rogers will be including CraveTV with HBO & TMN. If you are already paying for HBO and TMN you won't be paying for CraveTV as per what Rogers has listen.
"Will this change the current price I pay for The Movie Network and HBO Canada?
No, CraveTV will be included in your subscription to The Movie Network + HBO Canada at no additional cost.
- How will I be able to watch CraveTV?
You can continue to watch TMN and HBO Canada as you do today. We will share more details on CraveTV programming and how you can watch it on November 1.
No, the TV channel, but I screwed up. I got the day right but the month wrong. Thought the channel was supposed to be available today, not the first of next month.
My bad. Forget I said anything
It is also an App and can be added to Ignite TV, so it wouldn't surprize me if it was added.
No where in the announcement does it say it is a "channel".
I've been notice since the beginning of summer that on channel 1311 (CRV28) there is what I think is an CraveTV channel (Comedy Cen S-Z). It's currently unsubscribe on my account. But it's the channel like that on my box, I'm guesting that they use that channel to test before adding the rest of the channel when the service launch. I checked yesterday (02 Oct), still no change, will check back later like I do regularly. I did found the complete list of those CraveTV channel online.
I'm from Acadian Peninsula, New-Brunswick.
Wow, this is the first thing that Rogers has done in a very long time that actually excites me. My wife and I have been considering cutting the cord, or as an alternative, keep our nextbox 3 which we own, and getting only the CRTC required starter plan and adding HBO/TMN and two of the speciality networks we were considering running over an android box would be Netflix, Amazon Prime which we already have as we do lots of shopping and it was worth it for the free shipping alone, and Crave.
This may justify us keeping our current packages.
Things are certainly a changing in the TV media side of things with the success of Crave, it carrying active shows from other specialty over the air networks, and all the changes in over the air channels in the sports side of things - with IP based TV, it becomes very easy to add these things.
I just hope that it will be a channel on like Shomi was in the channel list and on demand, as I am not in any hurry to move to Ignite.
Nice to see a perk after so many others have been removed.
