More options for telus tv. And better movies on demand. I want all movies available through my tv that are in the video stores.

HGTV - HD?

Last night, Tuesday, I happened to notice on HGTV, when you display info about certain programs, Sarah 101 is when I first saw it, the description started with "HD, Sarah and Tom start....". Some of the other programs showed this also.

Is HGTV ready to go HD?

The Canadian Public HD.

What? I can't wish for my own channel to be available?

Well screw that then! :p

Actually, what I would like to see, but which would be impossible due to rights issues, is every live BBC channel from the UK (preferably central London), both HD and SD, along with ITV and Channel 4 where possible. There are many shows from these sources that I would love to watch in their original format as they air, and not in cut-up form months later.

I'm hoping that television programming gets just a little bit worse - it's almost there - so I can cancel cable TV altogether.

Very simple

I just want to be able to subscribe to HD channels without paying for the SD counterpart...

i.e. HD only packages

1. CableCards available to Canadians
2. Unencrypted QAM on at least some basic channels
3. True a la carte cable channel lineups

Customers just don't get no respect

True a la carte service is my top priority. It's been okayed by the CRTC for years. Why can't we get it? The stations offered by Rogers a la carte are lame. It's a token a la carte service at best, missing a ton of popular channels. And speaking of a la carte, why can't we get HBO without subscribing to all those movie channels? As I'm not interested in movies, it means I'd have to pay $20 a month just to get HBO. Outrageous! Rogers, where is your respect for your customers?

True a la carte has not been allowed. The CRTC mandates certain basic cable/sat. I believe that a la carte will be allowed after the analogue to digital OTA switchover, although that has nothing really to do with a-la-carte, it was just a convenient time.

a-la-carte has been discussed many times previously in the forum.

And on September 1st, 2011, the CRTC will be flooded with calls from people who can no longer watch their "stories" on their twenty year old tube TVs.

Should be fun! :)
