Galaxie Improvements Rolled-out to More Than 2 Million Customers

Visually-rich images and enhanced information now complement the audio experience

Improvements to the on-screen look of the Galaxie music service now reach more than 2 million customers in Canada following the launch today on Rogers Digital Cable. All 40 Galaxie channels on Rogers Digital Cable will now display on-screen images that represent the theme of each channel.

“Today is a very important day for Galaxie, since Rogers Digital Cable customers will immediately be upgraded to an improved on-screen experience for Galaxie,” said Eric Boyko, President and CEO of Stingray Digital. “We strive to offer Canadians the best possible music experience by continually improving our service. We wanted our TV service to be as visually appealing as the Galaxie Broadband service offered on Rogers Anyplace TV,” he added. 

Instead of seeing a plain screen that only displayed the song information, customers will now see thematic images on the screen when a Galaxie channel is tuned. The images change every 10 seconds for the duration of the song, and the channel information as well as song information is displayed in heavy frequency along with the images, allowing viewers the opportunity to immediately identify the artist or title of the song.

These on-screen improvements will soon be available on more cable platforms and are just one of many recent improvements to the Galaxie service including an increased offering of up to 100 channels with many new multicultural music channels.
