@bluedrongo. I don't know where you're located, since you haven't (hadn't) put that information under your UserCP - Edit Details - Location.

You need to click the Availability box, fill in the information, then you'll be taken to the various packages/channels.

Edit - since you're in Atlantic Canada, I've moved these posts to that thread.

@57,

Thanks, I didn't realize I had not filled out my location, I thought I had.
Am in New Brunswick so definitely not Ontario.

As for the availability box, it does take me to the various packages and channels but it does not differentiate between SD and HD.
So once again, my apologies.

You have to scroll through the channel list and see what's HD. At the left side of the channel list you should see "HD" beside/under the individual channel.

I scrolled through the list and almost everything was HD here in Ontario, except for many multicultural channels.

@57,

I don't see HD listed with any channels. Perhaps the Ontario website is set up differently to New Brunswick.
Here I am getting lots of dead links with errors.
I suppose the best thing for me to do is email rogers or have another chat and ask how many of the channels in the Ignite Flex 5 are HD.
Ignite Flex 5 isn't even listed on the NB site.

Thanks for moving the thread.

In Ontario we have Premier, Popular, Flex 10 and Starter. If I click on the Channels Tab, it shows which channels are in each package, which channels are Flex Channels (Included and allowed) and an HD (or SD) indication in the channel box on the left...

@57,

Ok the penny has finally dropped with me. I had not been looking at the channels tab. I'd been looking at the channels for each package and those are just thumbnails with no channel numbers or SD/HD info.
Thanks for persevering with me. It's much appreciated.

Glad you got it sorted. :)

My mother in law has had Ignite TV For a couple months now and is very happy with it. With the issues I've been having with Fibe recently, I'm finding some parts of Ignite work better. Plus the On Demand selection is way better.

I think you'll like the service.

It look like that Zap2it haven't add the Ignite TV listing for New-Brunswick, the only way to get it is to use a Toronto postal code.

@ Tridus, Thanks, I hope you're right.
It's getting installed next Thursday, can hardly wait.
One thing I noticed when looking at the addons is that timeshifting has separate Canadian and USA addons.
Bell gives you all of them including the US superchannels KTLA etc.
Being able to swap out 5 flex channels immediately will pretty much give me everything I want.
Price for the bundle was excellent.

Ignite TV was installed a few hours ago, I have Flex5 which is pretty much basic +5 flex channels which I have already swapped over.
Only thing I need now is timeshifting.
First thing that I noticed was the quality of the picture, it is so much better than the picture I was getting with my Bell satellite.
The remote works well and the guide is pretty good.
Even the voice part of the remote works much better than I had expected.
Demand seems very good too, am starting to wonder if there's much point in recording anything if you can watch it on demand although I have no idea how long they keep shows on demand.
Anyway, so far it has been a very positive experience.

Some on-demand programming doesn't allow for FF or other features, whereas recording the programme does. You would need to watch commercials on most "non-premium" channels on demand. (Crave being premium).

My promotion period is over and I am wondering if anyone knows if Rogers will still negotiate a bit of a deal or if that is done and gone.

Yes they will IF they have a promotion available when you call. If not, then call again in a couple of months and try again. Online chat is a convenient way of dealing with this.

Good to know but I haven't noticed any promotions for quite awhile now.
Chat is great, I always use it. Can do other things while waiting and don't have to listen to recorded messages and horrible muzak.

I just logged into my ignite account, I have ignite flex 5+ 500Ultd.
Today I find that I suddenly have 10 flex channels listed instead of my normal 5.
Anyone know anything about this?
There were still only 5 last time I looked but that was before I got the new promotion. Am starting to wonder if I'll have to pay more for these extra flex channels which in all honesty, I do not need.

Flex 10 is typically just $5 more than Flex 5 so if the promo provides better than a $5 discount it will be cheaper than the standard Flex 5 price.

I don't need another 5 flex channels, I had a hard time picking 5.
My question is why are there suddenly 10 flex channels but my bundle is for flex 5+ 500Ultd and there was no mention of getting a bonus 5 flex channels.
I am hoping that someone else will have had the same thing happen and have an answer.
