    Wish it had been "CBC finally being shut Down!... $1.3 Billion dollars saved per year! Canadian taxpayers finally winners!!"

    IMO

    From The National to the great documentaries and of course Hockey Night in Canada the CBC is truly a National Treasure.

    Apps are so 2006. I just go on the cbc website on my passport and it feels like being on a PC. Maybe apps are for outdated narrow phones like my iphone6 which I had to return for being so outdated and useless.

    And we have only to look at the ongoing decline of the PC market to see why "it feels like being on a PC" is not going to sell phones.

    Their website isn't working on my Z30. Won't update. Is showing news from weeks ago. Tried refreshing, clearing cache. Nothing seems to work. I guess CTV it is for me now.

    At least their app has the menu buttons at the bottom within thumb-reach, where they belong.

    But they do provide apps for the mobile platforms MOST Canadians have chosen. It seems most Canadians have spoken.

    As a consumer that seemingly believes this entity is obligated to support a for-profit (and this should be emphasized) organization, that leaves you a few choices.

    One: get the laws changed.

    Two: work to increase BB10 marketshare

    Three: Relocate to a country that supports your ideals.

    So they aren't updating the app anymore, but now their just jabbing a stick in our collective eye by discontinuing the app connection. Headlines load, but stories do not.

    I can't even begin their mobile website to work with my Z30. It's like they detect it's BlackBerry and it won't update. The websites still showing stories from the 29 of April ! I can understand discontinuing the app but why deliberately screw over every BlackBerry accessing the website too. I hate cbc. What a waste of money.

    Oh I wish but Rogers has signed a 12 year deal with NHL and CBC is part of it, at least for the short term.

    If you do a twitter search during games of strombo you'll find the comments are not good at all. He's horrible at hosting, looks like a grown up wanting to be a teenager and the main reason why I keep the controller near by so when he's on I flip to something else.

    I'm hoping some changes are made next year...like him gone but that's not likely because they have so much invested in him.

    I'd love to see ratings of when he's on and when he's not on.

    Hate to sidetrack the thread but it goes to CBC's inability to listen to the consumers and the people that keep the channel going ie the taxpayers. They have a sense of entitlement that goes beyond arrogance.

    Ron maclean was a moron. I have no problem with strombo other than his suit and hair product choices. However Damien Cox should not be on tv he is terrible.

    Damien is ugh at best. Now that this has happened, I've taken to channel flipping during breaks instead of just keeping it on. I'm sure that's not what advertisers want to hear...but it's something they need to understand.

    Decisions have consequences. I'm just one viewer but I can't think I'm alone in this.

    Why do we need 4 commentators during every break?
    Do we really need someone in between the benches to toss in his 2 cents during the game?
    Do we need cameras on refs heads?
    Do we need that uber far away view of the rink for replays?

    Whatever happened to "it's not broken, don't try to fix it" when it comes to Canadian hockey.

    The reason why TSN does better coverage of hockey games is because they keep things simple.

    CBC NHL Rogers thinks more women would be better for viewership. The games been around for so many years and if this new demo they want to bring to hockey was there, it would be there.
