[TV] ***Cogeco New HD Channels***
Cogeco has added some new HD Channels today...
I just have a question for Cogeco,since your intentions are not made clear anywhere on your web site.
Why, after certain areas were Fully Upgraded did you not start at the
beginning & give us all the HD channels that most other cities have had for a long time already??? There has got to be well over 20 HD channels missing, but yet we all have to pay the same amount.
Here are some examples from the Family Package...
Still no Disney XD SD or HD which came out a year ago, Family HD, ABC Spark HD, CN HD. This is 2013 & Cogeco still seems to cater to people with 4:3 TV's.
I have waited patiently & even bought my own DVR, but I am very tired of waiting. Could some one from Cogeco Please give me an Honest answer about what possible reason there could be to not get these HD channels??? & Why is it so hard to get AMC HD??? Thank You.
I will not give empty promises about swithching to Bell Satellite,but I will say that as soon as Bell Vibe comes to my City ( and it is coming I have asked) I will be dumping Cogeco.
In what city do you live?
Well, I don't know what city Cvat lives in but still waiting in Burlington for
discovery hd 778
bravo hd 830
space hd 829

comedy east hd 721

The only channel that seems to be missing in the Hamilton West area is E-HD 828.
I would also assume that not all these new channels are going to stay free and that most of them are probably on a free preview at the moment. There's no way to know as there is no info anywhere on the Cogeco site or Facebook page about these new channels.
It would be nice if Cogeco updated it's main site under the TV Banner and offer some type of NEW NEWS or NEW CHANNELS or something along these lines, so that customers have an idea of what's gong on.
Oh and for the umpteen millionth time when is Cogeco going to offer CNN HD which has been around right from the beginning of HD TV? I mean come on there must be some reason that it's not offered? Rogers and Bell have had it for years so please why can't we have CNN - HD?
Cogeco employees will know what Cities do not get the full
lineup. The Cogeco Web Site had a Search feature from a drop
down list you could select your City & it would show you the
new HD Channels that were launched in your area,of course
it is now gone.
Here are the HD Channels I do not get.
CTV Two HD
The Weather Network HD
ABC Spark HD
W Network HD
Big Ten Network HD
NFL Network HD
Comedy East HD
CTV News HD
Also no HD On Demand.
Hamilton1, these Channels...
Are on a Freeview till March 31.
I am really not all that excited about these new Channels as I
have TMN. Its all older movies I have already seen.
I have a feeling that only when people like myself get fed up
with the HD offerings & go over to Bell Fibe,they may just
Cogeco How May We Help You?
1.)Well for starters I would really appreciate getting all the
above HD Channels.
2.)Could you please answer the following question...
Is it your Intention to give all Cities the same HD Channels?
3.)When watching a show I would like it if the picture did not
freeze making me miss dialog.This has happened on TMN &
West Coast HD feeds.
4.)Could you send the Correct DD5.1 sound by following DD
5.1 standards. KIRO 718 HD is still only 2 Channel stereo.
At least if you can not get the proper DD 5.1 then send a
signal that will let our Receivers default to Dolby Pro Logic II
which is what OasisHD is doing now on a lot of their
programming. at least then we would get better sound having
dialog come from the Centre Speaker.

Correct (that they won't stay free).
Cogeco has a new package listed on the website called "Hollywood Suite" that will be $6.06 a month for all 4 channels.
Not a bad price, assuming it's not a limited time promo price.

That's unusual, I have Much HD and Comedy HD, but lack Discovery, Bravo, E and Space... Space is the only channel I really care about.
I live in Waterdown, which is between Burlington and Hamilton.
