Re: HD Channels

Hello @JamesLeung,

 

Welcome to the Rogers Community Forums! 😃

 

I can completely understand how much of a better experience it is for you to watch your favourite channels in HD rather than SD especially when many of us have very expensive TV's that have amazing picture quality. Having to go from that quality to SD quality is pretty disappointing, to put it lightly. 

 

I know this is not the answer you are hoping the hear but we have not been advised of any plans to broadcast CNBC in HD, at this time. We frequently update our channel offerings and within the last year, MSNBC and Fox News were both changed to HD. I am hoping that CNBC will be changed over soon.

 

We will keep the Community updated if there are any changes in the near future.

 

Thanks for taking the time to join the conversation!

Re: HD Channels

I noticed that Rogers was finally able to renew carriage of CNBC, MSNBC and Golf.   Congrats and good job negotiating with the supplier.    CNBC is provided in HD on Ignite TV,  can it also be provided in HD on NextBox?

Re: HD Channels

Not many channels left in SD.     CNBC,  BET and CMT are the only stubborn holdouts.

Re: HD Channels

Im sure there are more channels that those. We need a complete list of SD channels identified,  and keep pressing Rogers to convert them to HD.

Re: HD Channels

Wow that is a long list. I know a few of them in Ontario are already in HD, like BNN Bloomberg. Even RogersTV is SD in NB eh? Wow

Re: HD Channels

Folks, holy cow that's a boatload of channels!   I thought the remaining channels here in Ontario can go HD without them forcing me to go Ignite.  The NextBox, in so many ways, is superior.   That's just my .02.

Re: HD Channels

I checked for Rogers Premier Channels in Ontario with SD and here is the list.

 

1) CMT Canada

2) BET

3) GameTV

4) CNBC

5) BBC Canada

6) Makeful

7) A.Side

8 ) Real Estate Channel

9) Cartoon Network

10) Ontario Legislature

11) Daystar Television Network

 

In addition there are some time-shifting channels but I don't count them because there is already an HD feed for them for the Ontario version of the channel.
