Thanks to innacana for the original find


Any way to get a free HD-PVR with this?
Where it say "-Standard Box Rental" is that free or you have to pay that?
If you already have Internet, can a credit be issued on your account or some other promo offered instead?
Can this be combined with the $300 HD-PVR BB purchase + $100 programming credit?
What is the difference between Digital VIP Cable and the VIP Package or is it the same thing?

I was offered the following when I called them a few nights ago telling them I already own 2 of the Rogers HD PVR Boxes and looking to see what they can offer me if I were to leave Bell and sign back up with them. I'm glad I did not pull the trigger and say yes just yet.

VIP Package
-$60.48 VIP Package / month
- $8.95 HD Service / month
- minus $8.00 for bundling with Internet
Internet
- $36.99 1ST YEAR 10MBPS / 60 GB PER MONTH
- 6 FREE PPV Movies
- 1 FREE Month of MOVIE NETWORK (Including HBO Canada)

And I pay about $118 everything in....I would like to keep this price...

You can do better than this. At least get 20% off your bill.

Is the number posted Victor's direct number or do I need to ask for Victor? Also wondering if I need to quote RFD in my conversation?

Just sign-up with Victor today. Installation date will be Sept 26th. I will update everyone with my experience on the first bill.
Victor, if you are reading this .... thank you for your help. AND ....I hope there will be no surprises when I receive the first bill.

When I talked to customer retention ... they said it is no way they can offer Digital VIP for $35 ... so we shall see if Victor live up to his promises.

Should be his cell phone number, but when he answers, just confirm that you're speaking to him.

I didn't quote RFD, I just said I heard about a digital VIP package deal through him and asked what the pricing was.

After the last rates increase I snapped, called Rogers and cancelled my internet (knowing they would call me back). After I was done cancelling the account, before I could even hang up they offered me Express for $32/month for 12 months.

You have to actually cancel the account to get the retention deals. There is a 30 day "cooling down" period before they actually stop the account. During that time someone from customer retention will call you back.

Here's what I managed to get today:
30% off Express Internet
20% off Digital VIP Cable
Free HD-PVR for a year
20% off Superstation, TMN, HDTV Specialty Channel Package.

Couldn't get them to remove the Digital Services Fee or make the HD-non-PVR box I have free for a year as well, oh well.

Saved about $40 a month, which isn't so bad I suppose.

i can confirm that I have used victor to set up my VIP cable service, and it is exactly as advertised, no surprise charges at all.... my 1 year is almost up, so pretty soon, i will be calling to look for a better deal.... i will update to see what i can get.... but victor is definitely the real deal.... when i called last year, he even threw in an extra $30 bucks off for the 1st month, which is pretty cool.... so if you are a new subscriber or customer, victor can get you the best deal...

Oiy, one more question.

Does the digital VIP include Fairchild? I live in North York if that makes a difference :) .
