U.S. Superstations

Can anyone confirm that the U.S. Superstations - WPIX, WGN, KTLA & WSBK are still available with The Movie Network package. It's only listed as included in the Super Channel package, which we are not interested in. Receiving conflicting reports from customer service.

So my wife wants to watch Big Brother. Last night it was on Global but tonight it is on something called Slice which appears to be only a non HD station. Is this just Cogeco or is Slice just a non HD station everywhere.

Shaw Media doesn't distribute this channel in HD yet. It's not unique to Cogeco.

I guess Shaw really doesn't give a crap about the Big Brother series then if they don't want to use Global to air it Personally I hope it dies quickly.

Time Shifting Channels Removed

I received an email from Cogeco today informing of the following:
Dear Valued Customer,

At Cogeco, we are committed to providing you with the very best services that entertain, inform, and connect your world. As part of our efforts to continuously improve our TV packages, we are making several changes in the upcoming weeks to harmonize our TV packages across Ontario.

Therefore, we are revising the list of channels available in your TV package. Here is a summary of what will change in the upcoming weeks:

Channels permanently added to your current package
Treehouse – a great line up of kids' programming
V – a French channel that goes beyond the usual with original programming (available on channel 541 SD and 563 HD)
Channels removed from your current package
The West feeds for NBC, CBS, ABC, FOX and PBS will now be available in the Time Shifting theme pack, which can be added to any Digital Select package.
Salt+Light and EWTN – will be available through the new 'Heart and Soul' pack FREE of charge
Télé Québec will no longer be available

I really do not care about Treehouse or "V', but am super ticked off about losing the time shifting US channels. Last month they told me the price was going up 3 dollars and now tell me that for the added money I am lucky enough to lose some of the most watched and recorded channels.

Our house is currently looking at reducing services. We really didn't want to, but the time has come.

Angry Usual Cogeco Robbery

This is the usual robbery that Cogeco does from time to time and they seem to be able to get away with it.
I really like having the channels from out West. It gives me a 2nd chance to watch a program I may have missed.
Earlier they removed Showcase-Pacific without any notice. Poof! and it was gone.
We are getting rate increases while our programming is being reduced. I am seriously looking at satellite TV now.

I received the same letter, although we have the Basic Package. We are losing three to five channels (I don't watch anyway). Our price is going up.

Gained TSN2 in the new line up, but can't access it

We received that letter, saying we will lose S&L and Tele Quebec?
Will gain TSN 2, Treehouse and V?

I visited the local Cogeco store and was advised ( I was only really interested in TSN2) that you cant access the new additions with a Cogeco adapter, but with a digital box ($4) or a HD box ($7) I can get it.
I have a HD box and can verify I get the channel on one TV, but not on the TV in my home office associated with the adapter.
Great so we get a letter (undated ) from Ron Perrotta VP Marketing, saying
"Channels permanently added to your current package"
What he didn't say was it will cost you the price of a digital box to receive them.
Why cant the adapters receive the new channel additions???
The guy in the store said the adapters were only meant for the initial migration from digital.
I would like an answer from cogeco, on an open forum

I currently have all my services with Cogeco for the last 8 years. It is time to move on. Cogeco is too expensive for what they offer. I am seriously thinking of jumping to Bell and getting all my services from them. Their introductory prices are so much cheaper than what I am paying for and even after that the prices are cheaper than what I am currently paying with Cogeco.

I am just waiting for a response to a question I posted in the Fibe tv forum. That will be my deciding factor. Anyone else leave Cogeco for Bell?

Forget Bell, try Start Communications, at least for your internet and phone...
