Question

I guess we'll see tomorrow. It'd be nice to see Movietime & AMC HD appear tomorrow?

hey i just got flicking through my guide and didnt see those channels, AMCHD or MovietimeHD, listed. so i called rogers and guy i had on the phone was very helpful and said they are still working on getting the channels. i was looking forward to seeing these on there but its ok for now, i love my TCMHD and CHCH plays enough good films i survive till these are in the lineup...

I also see the Fireplace channel is gone.

Today, my STBs were reset to Ch. 1, so I guess something happened during the night.

Question

I still don't have Movietime HD, i can't find it anywhere, standard movietime is saying its on channel 562, but that channel doesn't exist, and its not listed anywhere on the rogers website as being a channel. anybody else having that problem?

I believe they are included in the VIP pack as I get both SD & HD Movietime. However, there is aslo something called the "3 HDTV Channel Pack" whatever that is, but there's no charge for it.

It could get quite expensive:

...and its not even in 5.1.

A sample of their "programming"

"One Star" 5:30 to 5:45: Viewers test their knowledge of celebrity and showbiz trivia.

"My Life Sux" from 8:00 to 8:30: Viewers text in complaints about their lives.

"Cutest Pet" from 6:30 to 6:45: Viewers vote on footage of cute animals.

"The Locker Room" from 9:00 to 9:30: Sports chat by fans.

Also keep this mind-boggling gem in mind: This channel was licensed by the CRTC and being a cat-2 channel, actually negotiated and got carriage. lololol

Rogers seems keen on giving oppurtunities to independant broadcasters for carriage while the other BDU's don't.
