Chinese New Year, also known as Lunar New Year, or Spring Festival is considered the most significant traditional Chinese holiday. In honour of this year’s celebration, we’re helping you stay connected with family and friends in China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan.
This year’s 2011 celebration falls on February 3 so starting February 2 at 8:00 pm EST until February 3 at 8:00 pm EST, we’re offering our Rogers Home Phone customers in Ontario and Atlantic Canada free long distance calling to China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. The calls will show up on your next bill, but there will be no cost associated with them.
And if you are a Rogers Digital TV customer looking to stay connected with news and entertainment from China, Rogers is also offering free Chinese channel previews until February 10. From January 20- February 3, you can watch Phoenix America (Ch. 807) and LS Times (Ch. 819) for free. And from January 27 – February 10, you can watch ET Global (Ch.806), WOWTV (Ch. 808) and WOWTV HD (Ch.577) (Ontario only).
Rogers is also offering 250 free text messages per month for six months to China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan when you activate or renew a three year term on any Quick Messaging Device (QMD) or Android smartphone.
