Crave TV coming to Rogers

Crave TV will be included in TMN/HBO packages at no extra cost starting November 1/2018. This must be killing Rogers to see Crave succeed where Shomi failed so miserably.

If anything, it's more like Rogers should buy the rights to Netflix Canada and put Netflix on the digital box (Where Shomi used to be available) if they want to stop slow down the cutting of the cord.

If you have unlimited internet, yes, that would work, but I meant the ability to enjoy Netflix without any data usage, the way Shomi used to be.

Ignite TV is a very serious joke. Rogers wants way too much money to hook it up ($149.99 connection fee) and too much money per month. 
Why did Rogers need to waste money on all those famous people? If Ignite is so great, wouldn't it sell itself? 
Maybe (long) after those famous people are paid off and the ads go back to being basic ads with no famous faces the price will come down? 
It will have to if Ignite TV wants to survive...

My guess is fear.  They wasted C$500 million on creating their in-house IPTV and now they are years behind Bell with this meagre offering.  If you can't compete on features or price then give them some razzmatazz .

Re: Crave TV coming to Rogers

I've heard this is more of a swap than a bundle. Bell is rebranding two of the TMN channels (to Starz brands) and is taking them out of this package in exchange for Crave.
