An announcement from here surfaced yesterday...

http://modem.sourcecable.ca/wp-conte...MS_LETTER1.pdf

Quote:
Source Cable and Rogers are changing the way we deliver the Internet services in your home to
prepare for the move to the Rogers network. In order to do this, we’ll need to visit your home to
replace your existing modem with a certified Rogers modem.

To receive your replacement modem, you’ll need to book your installation date with us by calling
905 296-1777 or go to www.sourcecable.ca/modem. We’ll also be calling you shortly to answer
any questions you may have and to book the installation date (if you haven’t done so already).
During this period, our technicians will be available from 8am-8pm Monday to Friday and from
8am- 5pm on Saturday and Sunday.

The good news is that your monthly fees remain the same, you’ll continue to receive unlimited
Internet usage and your new modem rental is free.

Book your new modem installation appointment today:
call 905 296 -1777
go to www.sourcecable.ca/modem

Thank you in advance for your cooperation and for choosing Source Cable as your Internet provider.
I guess this means that the unification of the Source and former Mountain Cable service areas is about to begin.

It will probably still be quite some time before Source Cable operates under the Rogers name. The issue is that the channel line-ups for former Mountain cable customers is completely different along with the IPG and some hardware. Rogers has owned Compton Cable and Kinkardine Cable for a number of years and they have done the same thing with those systems as well. Also Source Cable has been going through this process for a few months now. My modem was switched mid-June.

I do expect that all three systems will eventually fully transition to Rogers but it will likely still be at least a year before that happens (maybe more). One thing to note is that Source Cable answers after hours calls for Kinkardine Cable and Compton Cable customers.

How come NHL Network is still listed in the guide on Rogers?? I also saw somewhere that Source wasn't getting Disney at this time due to technical reasons. But it would come later.

You might be thinking of this from Channel Finder | Disney Channel:

Disney Channel (incl. On Demand) will not be available in Hamilton (former Mountain Cable) at this time due to technical reasons.

The following was added yesterday

149 Disney Channel
152 Disney Channel HD

To echo what Dr.Dave posted, Rogers owns two systems in Hamilton; the former Mountain Cable system (previously owned by Shaw) and Source Cable. The former Mountain Cable system is now doing business as Rogers Cable while Source Cable continues to operate under the Source Cable name. Rogers plans to migrate Source Cable over to Rogers in the spring of 2016. Even after the transition the Source Cable system will still have a different channel line-up than the Rogers Hamilton system.

The Source Cable plant is build much better than the former Mountain Cable system and was already interconnected to Rogers for delivery of many of the HD channels that they carry. Source Cable also has less customers per node than the former Mountain Cable system which means they don't have to allocate up as much spectrum for VOD and Data Services. The technical issues that the former Mountain Cable system has is mostly the fault of their previous owner; Shaw Cable as they tend to not build their cable networks as well as other providers. Unfortunately Rogers seems to be slow at upgrading Hamilton to match the product line of other Ontario markets.

I'm guessing Rogers will be adding them too. They aren't on Source Cable yet. Both are on Free Preview starting Feb 16th so they could show up as early as next week but more likely sometime in March.

Just noticed on the Shomi login page today, that SOURCE shows up there as a partner now.

Shomi has been available to Source Cable since November. If you don't have the 100MB internet speed (Which includes Shomi) you might as well just sub to it directly. Source Cable at the moment doesn't have Shomi access through set top boxes.
