Television has come a long way since Leave It to Beaver. Not only have programs become much better, with movie-quality shows such as Boardwalk Empire and Game of Thrones, but how we watch TV has changed, too. Gone are the days of one-TV households. Now, at any given moment, an entire household – mom, dad, brother, sister – can tune into several programs at once, on multiple devices, including portable ones.
Of course, if you’re a Rogers Digital TV customer, you’re already aware of the high-quality, largely free On Demand programming. But what you might not know is, there are four ways to access On Demand – on your TV; streamed online at Rogers Anyplace TV onto your laptop or tablet; through an Xbox 360 gaming console; and with the Rogers On Demand Beta mobile app for select smartphones.
