Great to hear.

This was bound to happen.

I'm sure Bell will do the same.

Good to hear.  Not wanting to keep AMC because became more more popular, and thus more costly for Rogers, was not such a bright decision.  I'm sure the customer outrage at the suggestion swayed Rogers' change of mind.  It makes you wonder whether getting customers involved by announcing it would be dropped helped or hindered Rogers in getting a fair deal.

Thanks guys for continuing to carry AMC. It’s a hard place to be in: speciality channel providers wanting more money for carriage rights while people continue to cut the cord. It’s not an easy position but glad both parties could make it work.

Great job negotiating the deal! In the future it might be a good idea to communicate a little better.

 

Happy New Year Everybody!!

Yep, it's still on my channel lineup and working..  But that's OK, I was going to cancel my cable when I was sent to Client Retention (they even say it to you) and was offered a deal I couldn't refuse.  I was paying $39 for cable and $99 for 130Mbps Internet.  They offered the same cable package and 300Mbps + free Crave and HBO for a month for $99.  Oh yeah!

 

You gotta play the game to get the deals.

Exactly, anybody paying an insane amount for monthly services, pick up the phone and call Rogers, ask for retention and tell them your monthly bill is much too high

Re: Rogers Dropping AMC

Great to hear but now we can all expect a rate increase for a chanel that was already included in the package. I'm sure Rogers will say thats not he reason but we all know better.

If an increase happens because of AMC then I will call them out on that as well.

I'm retired and on a budget so  if my bill rises even $2  I call them and get it fixed.

My December bill said it will increase by $2 + tax after Feb. 20/2020. This is after my November bill said AMC would be dropped and now isn't. Don't know it that's just an annual inflationary increase or a coincidence. In any case. that bumps my cable bill over the $100 limit I've  set, so I'm now looking at a non-Rogers TV package from my ISP that will save me money by bundling with my phone and internet.

Good luck Rogers! You can't please them all.  

 

I'm yet to find that dream alternative ISP everybody keeps talking about.. don't know why people would wait for $2 increase before leaving for a much better cheaper service??
