While I can't speak for Cogeco, I do see other instances where you are left scratching your head about channel placement.
Look at CTV2 in the 800s and PBS Seattle on 810 with all the other Canadian and U.S. broadcast channels being in the low 700s. CTV2's placement seems even more silly now that 705 has opened up. Also, wouldn't 703 CBLFT make more sense with all the other French HD channels in the upper 500s?
As for cable channels, who decided to put Disney Channel SD on 497. I bet a lot of folks were never able to find it until Cogeco said the channel number.
Cogeco is seriously in need a re-alignment but I figure it won't ever happen. Shuffling channels is something that causes many customers to get rather upset, and that would be putting it nicely.
There is only one Shopping channel. The Shopping channel channel in SD shows up 4 times in the IPG but is the exact same feed, on the same physical channel - no extra bandwidth used. Same thing for two Cartoon Networks (2 in SD and 2 in HD) now plus 2 TSN2s (2 in SD and 2 in HD), 2 TSN4s (2 in SD and 2 in HD), 2 MFests (2 in HD) and 2 TMNEncore2 (2 in HD) feeds. Extra stuff to scroll through for no reasons.
As for CP24, I find it odd to have had it in Timmins...of all places but not down here.
