I have just received an email from Rogers saying that they “will soon be fully upgraded to an all-digital format for improved picture and sound quality”, which means that they will be dropping all of their analog channels soon.

Customers that use digital set top boxes will not require additional equipment. But Rogers will be providing digital adapters free to customers that have simply connected their televisions to their outlets via rogers.com/digitaladapter and their customer service department at 1-800-530-4034.

The other cable networks may choose to follow Rogers’ example so keep an eye out on your statements and emails.
