You will never see FX2 on Cogeco, nor will you see TCM, and others mentioned in earlier posts. Dealing with most customer helpers over the internet is a pleasant experience but some of the store front reps need a refresher course in attitude towards the customers. Lines can get long and tedious sometimes.

Regarding TCM, when you say never - do you mean "NEVER" as in they'll never even sit down and talk together never? I've certainly heard - for years - about the famous Audet/Turner feud, but I expected to see some movement on it over the years, if nothing else but for the business aspect of it.

I'm not a Cogeco subscriber, but it is WGN America, the superstation feed, that is going away in Canada, as it converted to a cable channel in the US on January 1, 2015. As far as I know, Cogeco was one of the very few providers that still even offered it. All of the other providers make use of the local Chicago WGN TV 9 (CW affiliate) feed, that has been provided by Shaw Broadcast Services since 2007.

If Cogeco is dropping the local Chicago feed too, then it must be due to circumstances specific to them only, as no other providers have been affected.

The Weather Network HD

Noticed today that both WGN feeds are completely gone from the guide in Windsor. Any bets on the next channel to be pulled?

WWE is being added on March 26th, according to http://about.rogers.com/About/Media_...Providers.aspx

That should make some folks happy. Posts to the Cogeco FB page will be quiet after that one launches. Then again, the AMC fans will be even more ticked off.

Interesting that they are adding CNN HD and HLN HD but not TCM HD. Usually Time Warner ties new carriage agreements with TCM and WPCH.

I am praying they are working on details to acquire TCM HD. That and AMC HD are, quite literally, all I need to have everything I want.

It's possible TCM is coming at that time but since we don't have TCM at all, its "announcement" may be being held back until that time. I'm speculating of course. I'd love to see Peachtree come back and NOT as a superstation either. I'd love to see KTLA, WSBK and WPIX be removed as supers and just in another package or a-la-carte. It could even go to the Timeshift package too.

As for AMC, who knows. They have nothing to do with the Turner channels and from what I've seen over the years, they seem to be threatening to pull their signals with just about every provider big or small over the years. They may be not that easy to negotiate with...don't know.

We'll just have to wait for a couple more months. What's 2 more at this point?

Any word yet on who will be able to get this channel? Or will it be available to everyone who has the regular other similar channels?

jeff...nothing has been said and they may not say anything until it shows up. My guess is with the same packages as FX but I'm not sure.

tallen...I would take that as meaning they are trying to get it and not saying no outright. As to when....who knows.

Thanks denben73.

Also, for the WWE Network, will we be getting a free month-long preview starting on March 26th? The rest of the world got some kind of free preview, so are we being screwed out of it?

According to http://www.cogeco.ca/web/on/en/resid...ct_package.php, FXX is in the same package as FX.

EDIT: As for WWE, we'll find out in about a month.

I had always thought Eastlink was the only company that was super tight-lipped about anything new, Cogeco proved me wrong.

Fantastic! Now I won't have to watch It's Always Sunny online anymore.

Random question - with all these new channels popping up in the last 2 years, what are the odds we'll get a massive rearranging of the HD lineup this year? With Cogeco's theme packs all over the place regarding HD, I think it makes sense to put them all in order of theme packs so people don't have to scroll all over the place for their channels.
