Cogeco Channel Discussion Thread
 
This thread will be for rumours, channel deletions and complaining about any channel not offered by Cogeco.

Actual confirmed new channel announcements and channel deletions will now have their own thread.

Here's hoping that we actually get to see CNN, HLN, AMC in HD in 2015.

I'd still like to see Canadian timeshifting in HD. Cogeco must be the only cableco NOT offering it in HD. Like we need Comedy East AND West in HD.:rolleyes:

Also TCM and Peachtree would be nice both in HD.

I recently sent a complaint to Cogeco saying that I was very interested in their TIVO service but didn't want to give up channels like AMC and CNN HD which I've had for a long time with Bell. They replied with some instructions on how to subscribe to TIVO, but completely ignored my question about their refusal to carry certain stations. Doesn't look very hopeful.

Time to Move On and Up
 
I hate Rogers with a passion that knows no bounds but it is time for Rogers to buy out this neanderthal family run business. It used to be good or acceptable but now it seems they have personal vendettas against anything to do with Ted Turner even though he is no longer connected with most or all former enterprises.

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.

So did WGN-DT remain on Cogeco when they dropped WGN America? Curious if WGN in any form is still available on Cogeco.

While I don't sub to them, they are both showing in the guide with no changes to labels or guide data.

Their website no longer shows WGN within the movie package.

Personally, I'd love to see Eastlink buy these systems. Being with Cogeco reminds of the old Persona days before EL took over.

They're just showing a banner page, explaining that WGN has terminated all broadcasting rights in Canada, as of January 1st.

Everyone needs to get on them to show that other providers are still showing WGN-DT. They seem to love taking channels away with no replacements and will use any excuse they can find.:mad:

Andicus 2015-01-04 08:15 PM

Well, unless they're outright lying, this one is not on Cogeco, but on WGN.

denben73 2015-01-04 08:17 PM

WGN America yes, WGN-DT no. There is no reason they couldn't have just changed the SD version to the Chicago TV station version to match the HD one.

Andicus 2015-01-04 08:43 PM

Ah, okay. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

denben73 2015-01-04 09:22 PM

I'm going off about a channel I don't even sub to I know.:p I'm not happy about what they seem to be trying to accomplsih here. How many more channels will subs lose in 2015?

CamDAB 2015-01-04 11:19 PM

^^^ That will depend on when contractual agreements end and if parties can renegotiate carriage, channels going off the air, CRTC approvals etc.

The TV broadcasting landscape is a LOT more fluid than it used to be.

You do bring up a point, it's possible that the WGN contract is over anyways and can't get renewed. Maybe Cogeco is the first one that has to drop it. Maybe everyone else will see it gone over the next year or so.

I can admit when I could be wrong or misunderstanding things.;)
