Sportsnet One rumoured to be coming to Shaw Direct

Digital Home has been informed that Shaw Direct, Canada’s number two Direct-to-Home (DTH) satellite provider, has reached an agreement with Rogers Media regarding carriage of Sportsnet One.

According to an Shaw insider that spoke to Digital Home, Sportsnet One will be available on Shaw Direct in the next few days.

No word yet on pricing but if earlier reports are true, all Shaw Direct customers, including those who don’t want Sportsnet One, can expect to pay more.

    This is crap!

    Why should I have to pay for a specialty channel to watch Canadian sports. Why is Rogers Sportsnet (CH 22) reduced to showing crap like poker and coliseum-style barbarity?

    If anything the Canadian sports should be on the regular channel and the rest should be on crap-per-view.
