HGTV HD? Will it or won't it show up on Monday on Rogers? I say Yes(my guess and doesn't mean it will). Its one one those channels that you know will be picked up by everyone.

I'm assuming Rogers will be carrying HGTV HD, but not necessarily when it launches. I can never figure out Rogers. They launch channels that you never expected, but stuff like AMC HD is still a no show.

I checked Rogers IPG this morning(Ontario-Ottawa region) and notice some changes(channel additions, re-mapping, name changes).

Here's what I've noticed(the 9 new ATN channels and few other things)

CH#----------Channel-----Note
124 Metro----Metro 14-----Name Change

175 Times----Times Now---New Channel

72/252 VIVA(OWN)--VIVA(OWN)-- March 1/11 VIVA becomes OWN

361--------HDSP1-----Re-mapping
to------------to------Channels put
384--------HDSP24----in proper order

498 CRIK2---Cricket Channel 2---New Channel

499 CRIK----Cricket Channel----Name Change

640 CASA---CASA?----New Channel? or Name change? not sure? :confused:

694 JUS----Jus Punjabi---New Channel*

695 HDTGT---HDTV Good Times--New Channel*

696 ZOOM--ZOOM---New Channel*

797 MCM---ATN Malayam---New Channel

843 SABTV---SABTV----New Channel

854 PUAJJ-----PUAJJ---New Channel

855 AATN-----Sony Bengali-----New Channel

856 JBAN------Channel Bengali----New Channel

876 MBC---MBC--Channel appears to having broadcasting issues month+(see notice on channel 876)


* These channels I'm not sure why Rogers didn't put them in the 775-899 Ethnic Channel range? :confused:

The reason is these channels:
786,787,788,792,793
823-826,859,872,881,893 & 894
are still being unused? I'm not sure why they didn't place them in that range?

In any case its time for a re-mapping of the whole system?

Some of those unused channels may already be reserved for something else. Their channel placement makes no sense. I wonder if they just draw numbers out of a hat.

OPPS :eek: Your right 122 instead of 124.

What I find bizarre is they can add ethnic channels(have no problem with them adding the latest ATN channels, all the power to them), but you get channels like Sunset,Fireplac,TXT TV,etc which I'm sure the majority of subs could care less about, but they can't even add AMC HD & HGTV HD.

I could understand if they didn't have the SD versions, then an arguement could be made but when you have AMC for the last few years, and especialy HGTV(was one the first Speacilty channels approved back in the early 1980's and the can't even add the HD version!!! GIVE ME A BREAK!! :rolleyes:

It looks like those other 2 AMC HD and HGTV HD could be negotiation issues. Maybe they are waiting for contract renewals with SHAW who holds the rights to both. Remember it took them ages to add Playhouse Disney because they waited for contract renewals with Astral.

If Rogers is allowing this, then you can expect other Companies to follow with their ideas Mc donalds, Burger King, Harvey's,Car Dealers, other companies selling products?

Rogers gets approval for seven new Specialty TV channels I assume we might start seeing them on our network shortly.

Just a reminder expect to see OWN replace VIVA on Tuesday March 1/11

72/252 VIVA on IPG to be 72/252 OWN on IPG.(my guess) :confused: :eek:

578(assumption/guess) OWNHD
No info at this time not sure if it will be added?

The Rotisserie Channel is active on Channel 208 in SD.

Two rows of three chickens each.

Personally, I would prefer a BBQHD with grilling steaks and burgers, but you take what you can get.

Fine here in Toronto. Check your signal strength and call Rogers.
This has happened before when HISTORY HD(581) & HD Global BC(568) went HD. Toronto subscribers were receiving them but Thornhill and related subscribers were not. It took a long time before Rogers corrected this omission!
