Re: Stingray Video channels no longer available.

I'm not sure if this is a Stingray or Rogers change, however, here's the link with all the changes listed:

VERY disappointed in Rogers (once again), this time for dropping Stingray Folk Roots.  This was the only Stingray channel that I listened to, and one of the few that features significant Canadian content.  LIke, we need another country channel?  Come on Rogers, you can do better.

Re: Stingray Video channels no longer available.

I’m not 100% sure but I believe it is Rogers who cut these channels because I continue to get the Stingray folk routes playlist emailed to me. That means the station still exists, just not in Rogers, and I can’t describe how disappointed I am. I listened to it 3-5 times a week and for hours at a time.

Re: Stingray Video channels no longer available.

Good day @ReneHache

 

As a music buff, the Stingray channels are definitely some of my favorite channels! 🎶 There were changes that were made effective on October 1st, 2020. Some of the more popular Stingray Music channels were added to your TV package. At the same time, some channels with lower viewership were removed. We also reassigned channel numbers for some of the Stingray channels. 

 

I've got a helpful list for you to decipher which Stingray Music channels have been added, removed, or replaced, please view the full listing here. You can download the PDF and print it if you'd like as well. 👍 I hope this helps! 

Cheers!

Re: Stingray Video channels no longer available.

Yes, it does look like this was a Rogers decision.  I can still stream various channels that I lost using the Stingray Website, or via the Stingray App on my iPad.  (Link for channels available in post 11 and the post above.)

 

I've been streaming for a while now, even before these channels were deleted. Not only were there additional channels available before this change, but streaming allows much more choice regarding artists, tracks, liking, blocking, skipping, etc.  I purchased a bluetooth adaptor connected to my stereo.

Yes. I've done exactly that.  It's one step closer to getting off cable TV altogether. If I could find a way to get a variety of Canadian and US real time network news I would ditch the TV account entirely.

Re: Stingray Video channels no longer available.

I was wondering since we lost most of our music video channels such as loud, retro, etc. and even the CMT channel has gone, are we getting any new ones to replace these?  I ask this since I see that Bell is now offering AXS tv which is a really good station except for the wrestling. Great concerts, features, and series like Daryl’s House with Daryl Hall would be a welcome channel for those who still like to watch concerts. Music choice to a lesser degree would be a distant 2nd choice to AXS tv but would be better than nothing. Thanks for any information.

Re: Stingray Video channels no longer available.

So, 

I don't believe I ever got an answer on the XITE 4K channel being removed a while back. Also did Rogers remove the Stingray Now 4K channel as well? I can't seem to find it anymore in the guide.

So this would mean that Stingray Festival 4K is the only Stingray branded channel that Rogers has left on the service, correct?

And as far as I know, only Rogers out of any provider carried the XITE TV channel two years ago.
