Wait, these channels are launching to Cogeco subscribers?

If so, I can't wait until Space HD releases. Been hoping for that channel for quite a while now.

Space HD is not available yet, and it's no longer October 4th.

Do you mind sharing your source?

id HD (771)
Comedy HD (722)
BNN HD (818)
Bloomberg TV HD (817)

Yeah, I was thinking the same exact thing.

At least we've gotten a few extra channels, though. Science channel seems to be extremely interesting.

Space HD (829) and Discovery HD (778) both showed up today along with Bravo HD (830) though that's saying not authorized.

Because they want "extra" for you to watch upconverted programming on those channels.

No, I didn't. Honest... I ran out of gas. I... I had a flat tire. I didn't have enough money for cab fare. My tux didn't come back from the cleaners. An old friend came in from out of town. Someone stole my car. There was an earthquake.......

Well that is a rip off. I thought Space HD would be free since Space is a part of the basic pack. Glad I am canceling Cogeco TV and getting Shaw Direct so I can get the HD equivalent of the SD channels for free. Subscribe to Space and get Space HD for free.

Cogeco eliminated the BS HD fee a few months ago, if you subscribe to a channel you get it in both sd and hd. It's one of the reasons why i switched back from Shaw Direct. Bravo HD sayin not authorized was just a glitch, usually takes'em a couple days to get everything working right when they add channels.

I show two Comedy HD channels for some reason the first is 721 and the second is 722. They both have pretty much the same shows, but at different times. is the 722 a timeshift channel?

Anyone else getting "Not Authorized" on MuchMusic HD? Bravo HD was not authorized until yesterday, and now it works.

I don't even have those channels yet. When I punch in '829' it jumps to 883.

I hope I get them eventually.

Still waiting on Discovery HD in Burlington. I spoke with the Cogeco rep here and she said it should have been up last Thursday.

Yes, they eliminated the HD fee, but increased the price of most of their TV, Internet and Phone packages at the same time.

My net savings were $3 - and only because I'm not paying for Home Phone, otherwise it would have been a net savings of a whopping $1 per month.

What plan do you have? If you have just the Basic you do not have access to all of these ... If you have a higher package, than call Cogeco to check your account, you should get them

I don't have these channels yet, either.
Going to probably give them a call later in the day, and see what's going on.

I'm on the Digital Select 8, and have nearly every channel, including the premiums. (excluding sports and French stuff)

If @tedh beats me to it, mind posting back? We're not too far from each other, so it's probably just a region thing. Still, if you called them, could you tell us what happened?

Also, a few of the channels appear to be working. Science HD is very entertaining.
But, I'm mostly interested in Space HD. The lack of that channel has actually tempted me to switch over to Bell, and if not for Bell only providing satellite TV where I am, rather than Fibe, I would have switched ages ago.

With Cogeco any channel that you subscribe to in SD you will get for free in HD. With reference to Space, it is a Digital Value Pack or higher channel. Most of the channels that were added (HD versions) are not Basic channels. Therefore, if you are a Basic subsciber you will not get them.

Well, that doesn't help me much, haha.

Still haven't called them. Been too busy to have a chat with tech support.

Well, I finally contacted Cogeco regarding the missing HD channels in Burlington. Dropped by the Cogeco store at the Burlington Mall and at first the rep was surprised that I wasn't getting the HD channels (Discovery, Space, etc.). Then another rep said "Oh yeah, the core area (Burlington/Oakville) doesn't have them yet, but the surrounding regions do." That was why my first rep was confused - she is from Hamilton and gets all these HD channels already. When asking when they might become available, they said they didn't have an ETA and there was nothing on their systems that indicated anything imminent. The reps said they usually find out right as these get released/updated. So who knows how long we will have to wait yet!

I gave up waiting for Cogeco to launch Space HD so I went to Shaw Direct and now I can watch it when ever and it looks so good.
Is Discovery HD called Discovery World? Or are those two different channels?

Okay thanks I'd just have to wait until they launch the 3rd satellite I guess.
