Cogeco 4K Discussions
 
When will Cogeco come out with a new receiver for 4K? I can't tell by the regular HD Pace receivers. Sold out. Can't buy from Cogeco or Best Buy and I don't want to rent a receiver. I also plan on buying a new TV to replace my CRT TV and will be buying a 4 K TV but would also like to buy a 4K receiver while I am at it

Thanks

Can I edit a thread if I noticed I made a mistake with spelling due to auto correct?

Only within a set period of time, not sure what that is though. Used to be an hour I believe.

Thanks :) I think it was less then 15 minutes

Considering the number of channels that are still offered in SD with Cogeco, I wouldn't hold my breath. :) I'd love to watch sports in 4K, but there would have to be a lot of other things available to make me upgrade my TV (I still have a Panny Plasma) to an OLED 4K , my receiver etc. I believe the eventual adoption of 4K will be very slow by the cable companies and even slower by the vast number of cable customers. I want to cut the cord so badly, I can taste it. I already stream about 50% of the content I watch on my TV. I don't trust Cogeco to be ahead of the curve. They are a big, very slow dinosaur

Saw this tonight on their website.

Thanks, denben73! Credit where it's due. Good on Cogeco..

Wow! From a CRT to 4K. What a jump. I didn't even think there was anyone left with a CRT as their main view.

rocket9 2016-12-14 01:04 PM

Yep...there are a few left..lol..I know quite a few older folks who still have them. I gave my old plasma to an old retired gent and his wife, set up a modest surround sound system for them etc. Then when I visited them, they were still watching mostly the SD channels. I had to laugh..old habits..

Cogeco connexion launches TiVo 4K service

Cogeco Connexion is proud to introduce a new TiVo 4K PVR allowing its customers in Quebec and Ontario to access ultra-high-definition programming, for an even better television entertainment experience.

Customers can now enjoy an ultra-high-definition image with four times the resolution of high-definition TV, with four times the level of detail, allowing much higher frame rates, enhanced colour and wider dynamic range.

To fully benefit from the 4K experience, customers can now subscribe to the TiVo 4K service, a multi-TV receiver making it possible to record up to six programs simultaneously as well as view online content thanks to direct access to Netflix. The device also offers the flexibility to access content not only on TV but also on tablets and smart phones, anywhere in and out of the home.

Cogeco Connexion is also launching TSN 4K, providing 4K coverage of live sports action featuring the Toronto Maple Leafs, Ottawa Senators, Toronto Raptors, Toronto FC and more. New 4K channels will be added to the Cogeco Connexion portfolio in the coming weeks. Customers can also access 4K content from over-the-top providers such as Netflix.

Switch on detail like you’ve never seen.
Now you can enjoy sports, Netflix and more in 4K with the all-new TiVo 4K PVR.

A 4K television is required to watch 4K. A single access fee of $10 is required for certain 4K channels. A subscription to the SD/HD channel corresponding to the 4K channel is required. 4K content is not available with all channels and varies in time.

I am so in, calling tomorrow. First time I can get a Leaf game in 4k

HowieDoin2 2017-03-23 09:15 AM

There is going to have to be a lot more channels than ONE for me to start swapping out my 1080p sets. Also, looks like its the same mini, which I assume is not capable of 4K?

Would appreciate any reviews or feedback on the 4K box, programming etc. when someone gets the service up and running. Thanks!
