Rogers Official Channel Announcement Thread

In order to de-clutter the Channel Discussion threads from previous years, only post here if a new channel addition, or old channel deletion:

1. Is posted on the Rogers' website, Facebook page or Twitter feed or on their forums.
2. Has been announced through a Press release.
3. Shows up on (or is removed from) the dial.
4. If a statement is issued on your bill.

Duplicate posts on the same channel are not required or desired. All commenting and discussions need to be made in the Rogers Channel Discussion Thread:

http://www.digitalhome.ca/forum/showthread.php?t=227306

Not following the rules will result in your post being deleted... not moved.

Rogers has launched 5 new channels:

--> Channel 115 - ROD1 (HD)
--> Channel 203 - ROD2 (HD)
--> Channel 320 - ROD3 (HD)
--> Channel 330 - ROD4 (HD)
--> Channel 428 - ROD5 (HD)

ROD1 was added October 30, 2016, and ROD2 - ROD5 were added November 1, 2016.

Notes:
- The channels are available in Brampton and Toronto - they may not be available in other markets.
- The channels have IPG data (same as other channels).

- Selecting these channels pops up a window with options: Order, Preview, Cancel.
-- These channels are 'pointers' that redirect to ROD content, and are not standard linear TV channels.

I suspect Rogers will announce them at this link when they launch in more markets.

These channels do not exist on 8300 PVR. They are viewable on newer boxes.

Rogers Employee. My posts should not be considered as coming from an authorized corporate source.

Nor on the 4250HD.

I haven't lost my mind. It's around here...somewhere...

Wow, it sure has been a while since a new post here.
