I'd like to see...
-mpeg4 transition for BTV, for more bandwhidt and more HD channel
-Or at least fibe tv available in my area (Quebec city)
-More HD programming on the channel that are supose to be HD! At leat 60% of the content should be HD!
-More VOD online content for BTV customers, especially french content!
for Shaw to add:
- more HD
- CRTC to put an end to simsubs (for sure, not going to happen)
- Global Reality Channel
- MyLocal1 (I think that's what it's called)
- Comedy Gold
- more US channels that we don't get (TNT, USA, TBS, etc.)
- Shaw to re-add their old Sneak-a-Peek-Preview Channel
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.
What? I can't wish for my own channel to be available?
Well screw that then!
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.
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.
