I was curious about this. I noticed this over the years when they come on as free previews. I noticed more recently.
First let me say it was nice of Rogers to give several channels as free previews during our isolation lock down.
Flipping through the channels, I was just wondering why the multiculture channels only come in standard definition. I see a handful in HD but most seem to be SD only. Why is that? The box goes up to 999 channels, alot of duplication as well, so lots of channels available. Showcase for example comes in SD and HD, just wondering why the multiculturals are mostly SD only.
Good evening @myusername100,
I hope you're enjoying the free previews!
I realize the TV watching experience is definitely superior in HD. Most of our Multicultural Theme Packs include HD channels. While some channels may only broadcast in standard definition.
As for CTV News, it is available in HD on channel 62 as a standalone or as part of the Canadian News Theme Pack for Ignite TV and legacy customers.
For a complete list of HD and multicultural channels as well as the theme packs please check out Our Channels page.
We can look into it for you, what TV service do you have? Ignite TV or Digital TV?
If Digital TV, are you trying the channel 62 on an HD set-top box? Is this channel SD for you on more than one box?
Please provide us with the model of your set-top boxes.
