Most of the following French channels are now available everywhere in Ontario, however, some are extra charge, which I've highlighted where known (I'm not familiar with the French Channels and do not subscribe)

101/611 - TVAHD
602 - SRC HD
603 - TELEH HD
606 - V HD
13/609 - TFO HD
611 - TVAHD
102/613 - RDI HD
617 - RDS HD (requires "Varietés" French theme pack)
103/651 - TV5 HD
629/657 - ZHD
619/689 - VIEHD
621/660 - VRK HD
623/680 - ARTV HD
629 - ZHD
631/658 - Historia HD
633/659 - S+HD
635/688 - Canal D HD
638 - ZESHD
643 Mystère HD/ADK
646/690 - SEHD
651 - TVSHD
652 - RDSIHD
654 - Évasion HD
657 - TVA Sports HD

663 - Tamil Entertainment HD
674 - FTV2HD
674 - TTV2HD
681 - ATNHD
682 - ZEEHD
683 - ARYHD
689 - MNDHD
692 - Bollywood Times-HD
756 - PlayboyHD
793 - TLNHD
823 - China Today HD
852 - ATMNHD

Some of the above HD channels are remapped to various locations on the dial according to themes - movies, sports, etc.

The premium tier HD channels require you to subscribe to the equivalent SD channels first - TSN, Discovery, Showcase, NG, etc (or the Digital VIP package, which is almost always a better deal). I believe this is equivalent to the "ultimate" package. The price of the HD "pack" is $9.95/mo. Some of the channels may be on free preview at any time.

At this time, none of the channels in "HD packages" can be ordered a-la-carte.

See the link in the Digital Home FAQ section on "What's available in DD5.1", and "What's on in HD"


HD Hardware:

Can be rented from Rogers or purchased from Rogers or their authorized retailers only. You may purchase used from a Rogers Ontario customer in good standing. Rogers also now have a rent-to-own option.

STBs: Cisco 4642HD (newest, digital only Tuner), SA4250HD (HDMI), SA3250HD (DVI), SA3100HD (Component Video - very old, do not use if possible)

The SA8000HD (very old) SA8300HD (old), 8642HD (NB2), 9865HD (NB3) (newest, digital only tuner) PVRs are available. The 8000HD has DVI and the 8300HD/8642HD/9865HD have HDMI.

If you're not on Digital VIP, there is usually a digital services fee of $2.99/mo.

* People outside the GTA will get Detroit instead of Buffalo.
