I had to put this list together because I hate using my television remote to see what new movies are available to Rogers on Demand cable subscribers. You have to click at least five times just to see a plot summary and then return to the main menu. It’s annoyingly inefficient and time-consuming.
Rogers must post this stuff online, right?
When I couldn’t find new movie releases after an hour of searching, I called Rogers to see if there was a secret hidden movie guide. After another hour of talking with them — both the cable guys and the online guys — they informed me that, no, they don’t list their new movie releases online. (Yes, yes, I know Rogers on Demand Online says it has the new releases, but it actually doesn’t. Instead of Friends with Benefits and One Day, which both came out this week, it has a Rihanna concert.)
Just as I was about to haul off and tell the Rogers representatives how absolutely incredibly stupid that was — even by Rogers standards of incredible stupidity — Google took pity on me round about my gazillionth search.
The Rogers Plus stores have a page where they announce the new DVDs available to rent. And, since those DVDs are released on the exact same day as the movies are released on Rogers on Demand, that means the page can serve as a proxie guide for cable viewers like you and me, who would rather quickly scan the listings on the internet than clumsily click through them on our TV screens.
Of course, what Rogers still doesn’t have is a list of all their classics and comedies available on demand, but at least this is a start.
Please, please, please Amazon streaming entertainment, come to Canada soon. Or at least can we get the good version of Netflix?
