Wow, spent a weekend at the girlfriends house up in Barrie, serviced by Rogers.....woooooooooooooeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!
How is it Rogers customers get 3 times the channels offered to us on Cogeco?? Aside from a few fun but useless channels (sunset/cottage/etc), to NASA, and a whole slew of specialty cable channels I had never heard of...

Pont is, if channels A,B,C,D,E,F,G,H, exist, and one carrier offers them, why won't Cogeco? Whats the issue? Hardware investment? Poor infrastructure to carry the extra bandwidth? They don't care?

Could also be economies of scale and they're not able to / or want to be flexible on carriage rights costs. Without being "in the loop", it's hard to tell where the molasses is coagulating. :) It could be combo of all the factors you mentioned....

With all the shortcomings of Cogeco in this matter I would rather have Cogeco than Rogers. My dislike of Rogers in all matters Rogers knows no bounds. Even their cell phone coverage in the Burlington/Waterdown area sucks as does their disdain of their customers. Ellen Roseman's latest article in the Toronto Star regarding being put on hold for hours etc just confirms the attitude. More channels usually means more mind numbing programming but that is just me.
