If you’re a Digital Cable customer, you likely know about the Galaxie music channels that allow you to listen to commercial-free music channels through your home theatre.
Now, you can get Galaxie through Rogers On Demand Online (RODO) – giving you the ability to listen to 40 non-stop music channels at work, school, the coffee shop or in another room while the TV is being used to play video games. Music genres include pop, rock, jazz, country and classical with numerous sub-genres for each, such as Remember the 80s, Urban Beat, Hot Country and Rock Alternative. From now until Christmas, there are also three holiday-themed options: Traditional Holiday, Franco Fete and Smooth Jazz Christmas.
The online Galaxie channel has the exact same music options as those on your TV but a different look and feel. It includes album covers, previews of what song is coming up next and what’s been played over the past 24 hours.
Log in and rock out
To access the channels you need to be a Rogers cable subscriber and log in to RODO at rogersondemand.com. Next, click Channels and then the Galaxie logo . You can also bookmark rogersondemand.com/galaxie. (If you haven’t signed up for RODO yet, just click the join button located in the top right hand corner of the site and then follow the links to register).
Anyone streaming from a location in Canada can access RODO but being a Rogers customer has its benefits, including access to live streaming events, sneak previews of TV shows and specialty programming tied to your cable account such as these Galaxie music channels.
