  • Rogers...bend over again

    In my area The Golf Channel has been out for two days. It seems the "free" preview on 410 is now over and they want an additional $2.49/mo just for TGC. This seems a bit ludicrous for those like me who pay over $100/mo to watch 3 channels with any regularity but Rogers have obviously done their demographic homework and figure they can get away with it. Pass the lube please.

        I did. In the end, I grimaced, took it like a man and subscribed. What can you do?

          TGC was out for me yesterday - called and waited a hours (ROD was down also) then gave up.
          called again today and they agreed to give me 12 months free (told them all me TGN friends got 12 mths free because losing analog channel 56).
          still find it wrong to charge additional $2.50 for us whom pay $55 for cable and $100+ for all Rogers service!

            Mine was down two evenings ago. Called them and waited 15 minutes on the line. When the customer service 'consultant' finally got on, she told me it was a $2.50 additional service, I simply told them my package include TGC, upon which she just turned it back on within seconds.

            Until next time....

              This is their way to see who really WATCHES TGC. I too went down and called ...waited a LONG time on hold and it was reactivated in seconds....

              conspiracy? DEFINITELY!

                Well, thanks to all. I called back and stated that several acquaintances got TGC for two years "free" and they acquiesced. Seems a bit arbitrary that it's done this way as the first guy made no such offer but whatever works.

                    It would be interesting to ask Rogers why the remove the Golf Channel due to the fact the ratings are better with MTV (their explaination to me when I e-mailed them) and now they have golf on demand? Hang on here....crappy numbers so I think I'll offer some more golf? Why would you offer more golf if the numbers for GC are already not worthy enough to be on regular cable? As we all stated in the begining this is cash grab and Rogers is following along according to plan. What a joke!!!!

                      Well they were pretty straight up with me yesterday saying that the demand for it was very high in the local area so they were moving it to a seperate channel on it's own, not to be made part of a package.. that's going to be a lot of $2.49 for Rogers. Knowing how to milk a cash-cow is only part of doing business methinks. Have to give them credit even though I hate them for making it a paid channel.

                        I had called previously and got $20 off my package and TGC for a year. Guess they forgot about the agreement as my is off too. I am having the MRS call this morning and get it turned back on.

                          I noticed they shut it down for me 2 days ago. Thanks for this post as I'm on hold with them now. I'll read every post to them (excluding names) and suggest that it be free for even longer.

                          I'll respond with my findings.

                            You could get Star Choice or Bell ExpressVu and then you don't have to worry about this stuff ever again.

                              I understand see some people see this as a matter of principle - which I respect. However, there are a lot of things in my daily life I want to gripe about. I won't bother with the extra $2.50. There are many worse ways to spend $2.50, which I do every day.

                              I just hope they go HD.

                              BTW, whatever happened to Stephanie Sparks?
