You asked us for more choices and told us you want to build your own TV packages and pay for the channels you like to watch. So today, we’re launching the trial of a new TV offering that is designed to do just that.
From now until the end of March 2012, Rogers customers in London, Ontario will be the first to try the Rogers Digital Starter Pack, a pilot program designed to give you the flexibility to customize your TV package, while enjoying all the benefits of a digital cable service with features like Rogers On Demand.
Here’s how it works:
The Digital Starter pack comes with a set of core TV channels, which includes channels that we as a cable company must carry. You get 86 standard channels for $20.29/month.
You can order the Digital Starter Pack and then choose any additional 15, 20 or 30 channels from a list of more than 100 options, starting at $26.38/month.
These prices include all monthly fees such as the Local Programming Improvement Fund fee, which the government requires us to charge. Prices do not include applicable taxes.
This is one way we’re moving toward giving you the most flexible TV choices. And, while it’s only available right now to our customers in London, Ontario, we want to hear from you. Would you sign up for the Digital Starter Pack and Mix Pack options if it was available in your area?
UPDATE: (December 5, 2011, 5:02 pm): We know some of you have been looking online for details about the Digital Starter Pack and the channels that are part of the offer. Click here for the full package details. Remember, this trial is only currently available to customers in London, Ontario.
