Dr.Dave I occasionally check Rogers to confirm national previews if I need a second source. They seem to update their web page at least once a month, although not always on time. I noticed that they left some of the expired previews from October.

Here are the major national previews they are participating in.

Animal Planet
History, including On Demand
Hollywood Suite, including On Demand
Love Nature, including On Demand and 4K

Humbar Fox Business is on Free Preview on Rogers for the next few months.

winterwolf @Dr.Dave , no I don't have the league package, I only have regular Popular TV. It is possible that it was added to my package without notice. I think I'll send them a tweet to check with them.

Dr.Dave Gusto Preview April 30 - May 27 (SD) 702, (HD) 477

That wasn't on the site a couple of weeks ago when I checked. I look at Rogers occasionally to confirm national previews and my sense is they update every 2 or 3 months on average, but definitely not monthly.

@winterwolf according to their web site (, the channel is available on several large providers.

Rogers has the channel in the League Sports and Super Sports Pak according to their web site. Do you have either of those?

I think Bell MTS gives the channel away for free, so Rogers may now include it in their basic packages.

57 As mentioned in this thread, the Rogers Free Preview listings are rarely up to date.

They seem to manage to update a few times a year, but definitely not monthly like they should.

winterwolf Starting today I can watch Game Plus Network (formerly FNTSY Sports Network, since apr 1st), was there any mention of a free preview? I found nothing on Google, there Twitter or there website.

That channel is exclusive to Rogers, that why I post this here.

Dr.Dave Rogers isn't quite that bad. I sometimes check there for confirmation of national previews and they seem to update the page every 2 or 3 months.

57 It's been almost a year and Rogers have updated their Free Preview page:

You'll need to click the details arrow since these channels start and stop and different times during this and coming months.

Dr.Dave Here is the thread @57 mentioned:

The Animal Planet Free Preview that ends Jan. 11 specifically mentioned Rogers.

I try to post previews that are on at least 2 different providers, indicating they may be national. Worth checking: HIFI, Love Nature, Smithsonian, Slice, History.
