You don't need to pay Rogers any more. You do, however, need to pay the streaming service that outbid all others in order to watch it:  See earlier posts in this thread.

While soccer is still a relatively niche sport compared to hockey or the CFL on Canadian TV, it’s still a tough loss for Sportsnet, which has long trumpeted its EPL package Burger king survey

We are all in agreement that it is a tough loss for canadian soccer fans, no one on here is happy to see soccer leave conventional cable tv channels, so even though we gave an explanation of why soccer is not on conventional cable it does not mean we are okay with this explanation, we all miss it too but we understand people with deep pockets and influence these things and we have no say in them we can only vent and express our frustration

It’’s a shame that big corporations like Rogers and Bell they lost all the rights to show soccer of any competition. DAZN company beats the BIG TWO (ROGERS AND BELL). Unbelievable and shameful.

Regretfully, they just bid low because they were not making enough ad revenue from Canadian soccer fans. This was followed 3 weeks ago by the same with Barclays Premier. As a British Colony, I thought we could continue to get some scraps from the limeys but they decided to feed their own first and got rid of Canadian commentators too. Now, you must get used to the cockney and, above all , pay extra and upgrade your WiFi at home.
