Inglewood I had a similar offer - I am only a Internet subscriber with Cogeco, but they offered me MyMix 40 with a TiVo and home phone service for a year for $39/month plus what I pay for Internet now. The price after a year is just over $100 before tax and internet.

If they could offer me that price beyond a year, I would have signed up immediately - however, I will stick to OTA/OTT for TV and Bell for phone at this time.

denben73 I would think that would be on top of the $25 basic (skinny pack) package. We have My Mix 30 and it gets billed as:

Basic TV Channels: $25.00
My Mix 30 - TV: $39.00

Below that is extra fees for certain Mix channels (like AMC, Sportsnet, TSN if you sub to any of them) and/or other standalone channels/packages.

jeffaustin90 I received this a few weeks ago and called. For me, it was the My Mix 40 package for $29.99 a month for a year and after that (I think she said) $44.99 a month thereafter. They send out those letters to those who have older packages that they want to get out of their system. I had the Digital Select 1 package since 2011 but I decided to change to the My Mix 40 with that offer. Now I have more channels (and channels I actually want) for less cost, not a bad deal.

But she also said that this deal was tailored for me, so other offers for other people might be different.

Cogeco special offer

I received a letter from Cogeco about a special offer and a number to call with the code YOU FIRST. To save me a long wait on the phone, does anyone know what this is?

Yes you do, not only that but you also have to use their wireless modem/router which also comes with a monthly "service fee".

denben73 Unless something has changed (which I doubt), you must have Cogeco internet to use TiVo. TiVo uses the internet to get guide data and other such info and using a third party internet service that isn't supported by Cogeco will just be a problem if there are issues that arise with connectivity.

Someone else may be able to give more detail.

There might even more info in this thread.

Dr.Dave @greatger the American parent announced over a year ago that it was shutting down H2, but would keep the brand alive in other countries, so you probably won't see much original content on that channel.

I'm not sure where you saw that ANCIENT ALIENS would be airing new episodes, since they completed the current season on 9/2/16 in the U.S. and it has yet to be renewed (Source.) I checked and H2 is currently airing episodes from 2015 and 2016.

If you would like to discuss H2 further, you can use this thread:

denben73 That's not a Cogeco issue. They have zero control what stations program and air, except for the Community Channel.
2017-01-20 02:47 PM
greatger Anyone else noticing that the channel content we get is all old programming episodes. Is this because we can only receive Canadian content ?
During commercials it will advertise a new episode of "whatever" is (Example Ancient Alien) is coming on next week. But we never receive it.
H2 is showing all old programming 2001 - 2013. Very little new content. Why are we forced to pay for substandard programming that isn't recent.
The only shows that are new are on the main broadcast stations. NBC, ABC, etc.....

denben73 For us, we are currently on Flex8, one stand-alone channel and timeshifting. Comes to $78.49 a month. We could switch to Mix 30, TSN, Sportsnet One, Sportsnet Regionals and Timshifting and pay $70. We could also swap a few channels we are paying for now and not watching for a couple of ones that we gave up on. Even switching to Mix 40, gives me 10 more channels and still be paying a bit less than now.

I have to say that it looks like Cogeco has the most expensive Timeshifting package in Canada - $10 for 5 U.S. broadcast channels although I seem to have the SD Canadian ones from 220 to 230. Not sure if switching will cause me to lose those or not.

Andicus ^I agree that the Mix packages could be a good deal.

Be aware, however, that some of the choices also count as 2 selections.

As per Cogeco_Peter in the DSLReports Cogeco Forum:

TSN 1-5 ($3.00)
Sportsnet ON, West, East, Pacific ($3.00)
For example, TSN cannot currently be purchased on it's own with the Basic package. It can be added as part of the My Mix package, but it counts as 2 channel selections and adds a cost of $3 on top of the My Mix price.

Regarding the West coast channels, I agree. $10 is ridiculous. Especially since I'm already getting those for free. If I change to a Mix package, I'm sure that would no longer be the case.

luvgolfing Actually, it looks like their Mix packages could be a good deal. For example, their Mix 20 package effectively gives you 20 channels over the skinny package for an additional $21....that works out to only $1.05 a channel. It is true that there are additional charges for the two major sports channels ($3 each for Sportsnet and TSN, and $1 for Sportsnet One).

Personally, I am now being given much for flexibility in choosing my channels. My only (minor) complaint is that they offer Mx 10 and Mix packages, and I (of course) would happy with only 15 extra channels. The only other complaint is paying $10 extra for the U.S. network West coast feeds, seems a little high.

Overall, I applaud Cogeco for giving better choices than the other companies. Now, if I could actually make the changes online without having to go through the hassle of dealing with a CSR, who might try to upsell me.

I agree, but looking at the website 30 minutes past midnight and expecting to be there at that time on the date is a bit of a stretch. If they REALLY wanted to do update it at midnight, it could have been done but I do not have high expectations from them and any other BDU.

Andicus As 06Honda pointed out, it's available now.

Be prepared for a shock, however. Most individual channels are insanely priced. Seems to be either $3.50 or $6.00 / mth, in some cases, more.

So a simple set of FX/FXX/AMC is $18/mth.

Food Network - $6/mth. Seriously? That's the price for 4 channels of commercial free movies with Hollywood Suite.

Be careful what you wish for, I guess.
