Let me be the first to say, that the new 4K selection of TV shows and movies is too limited
and the IPG interface of the 4K box is poorly designed
(hey - I'm only assuming this based on my many years past experience Rogers glaring inability to create a usable PVR interface, as with Navigatr, and the depressing trend that Rogers seems to almost be intentionally hamstringing their PVRs - by REDUCING available features and usability as they come out with new boxes - specifically, as examples, with the change from the Scientific Atlanta 8300 PVR (SARA firmware) to the NB2, Rogers ELIMINATED about 15 useful features, and with the transition to Navigatr on the NB3, Rogers AGAIN eliminated a number of IMPORTANT features we have became accustomed to using (like a simple and easy to see LIST of Scheduled Programs)
So I'm honestly asking - with the new 4K box - will Rogers STILL be leaving the interface design decisions to managers who seem to have never used a PVR at home in their real lives, and will Rogers continue to make design choices in the interface that continue to increase their revenue (like subtly steering us towards VOD where we pay for each movie), while at the same time these design choices make our 'viewing experience' MORE DIFFICULT and frustrating and less convenient?
(sorry to repeat the same old complaint again and again - but I thought I would post this similar info here and on the Rogers forum - and we can see how much of this the Rogers mods 'edit.'
PS: No prices quoted yet by Rogers for purchase or rental of the 4K boxes.
Anybody got any guesses? And will we pay extra to get 4K channels (when they become available)? And I assume movies in 4K will cost more on VOD than HD/SD?
