Rogers breached CRTC regs when promoting @Home replacement. See CRTC page here.

So they're not allowed to advertise their services on a channel that they own? Or provide information to their customers on changes to another part of their company? The CRTC is stupid. I cannot believe these guys take themselves so seriously. Why don't they penalize the CBC for promoting their own shows, website and radio programs incessantly? Dumb, dumb, dumb. And I don't even like Rogers or use them for any services at all!

While I find this extremely retarded, I am happy like a clam! I hate Rogers, at least they're getting burned by the CRTC for SOMETHING, hehehe....

From my reading of the complaint ... If Rogers had not included promotional material in the conversion programs and ads from @home to @rogers, they would have been OK on many of the counts.

Interesting to note that on the TVGuide channel now, there are lots of ads for Sympatico HSE!

My take is that Rogers enjoys a unique position on its cable network as both broadcaster and program distributor, therefore it can overstep its mark to the exclusion of others. Seems to me that the law is both right and wrong. I would have thought that they should be permitted equal time within a 24 hour period to promote their own services as they provide advertisement time for other similar services.

That's OK. I have no use for Rogers, either. Even though they are my cable supplier....
