Why so many on demand channels? Seems like adding those isn't a problem but adding more HD channels is!!! I find it a complete waste of time and would rather see the addition of more HD channels, maybe people will have difference of opinions but that's just mine!
It is my understanding that On Demand does not add to Internet usage, including Crave TV.
Netflix, however, is considered Internet usage outside of Optik TV.
Not watching TV yet, but isn't it that HD channel comes as part of the package at no extra cost while on demands are extra cost? So revenue could be one factor?
In an attempt to reduce possible confusion, here is my recollection of the on demand offerings:
On demand movies are charged at a rental rate.
On demand programming such as curated by Crave TV are charged a subscription.
Those regular TV programs available on demand are usually available without an additional fee. Not all TV programs are available on demand, though.
Netflix is considered streaming, and consumes bandwidth. It is not part of your TV package, as you subscribe separately to the service.
