Online-video viewing is booming as more and more people watch TV shows on their computer.
Rogers On Demand Online – which serves up TV shows, movies, music videos and web-only exclusives – is also growing in popularity. Since we launched our beta last year, you’ve been able to provide feedback via Facebook, Twitter and the site itself. Based on your feedback, we are excited to tell you about new features and functionality as we take “RODO” out of beta.
Social features: One of the best parts about watching a show is being able to talk about it afterwards with your friends and family. Now, you can easily comment on shows right on the website, as well as rate and share the video via numerous social media sites or Email in just a few clicks.
Cool new functionality: Make playlists to help organize all your favourite videos – which are now available in higher resolution. We’ve also added the option of doing an audio CAPTCHA instead of a text-only one during registration to make the service more accessible.
More content: There are now roughly 1,500 hours of video content available, including web-exclusive live streaming of concerts and world sporting events for Rogers customers. We’ve also added programming from Saturday Night Live (Global), urMusic, WildTV, Equator HD, Rush HD, Treasure HD, The Filipino Channel, Oasis HD, WFN: World Fishing Network, andPOP, Citytv.com’s Shorts in the City, and The Cineplex Channel featuring movie trailers.
No registration required: Not a Rogers customer? Not a problem. Hundreds of TV shows and movies can now be accessed for free by anyone in Canada, without registration. If you are a Rogers customer you’ll get access to exclusive content such as live streaming of upcoming sporting events, concerts and web-only programming. In addition, if you’re a Rogers cable-TV customer, you will get online access to many of the specialty channels you currently subscribe to through your account.
We may be out of beta, but we’re not done yet. With a growing number of content partnerships and more features to be added soon, we’re confident this service will take your entertainment watching to a whole new level of enjoyment.
Want to stay in touch about the latest programming and features? Check out Rogers On Demand Online’s Facebook page or Twitter feed @RogersRODO to get the latest updates and to provide feedback on the service.
