I couldn't quite believe it myself Hugh so I made sure to ask multiple times and it was the rep who brought it up to begin with as he asked if I travel at all. I said that i own a home in MT and he said great why not have a receiver up there so I don't miss any CFL games ect.ect when im up there for weeks at a time. The rep also told me that they have customers all over the US & Mexico and thats one of the things that makes them(SD) stand out from Bell(which I am also with for now) being that Bell doesn't offer any HAFH programme.

Let sleeping dogs lie. Close the discussion or continue to discuss and we lose.
Already I am sensing a "pro" tendency from the site. I hope not.
(And I hope I can make that comment above)

Yes - talk about this in public will get the same result as when C Banders and 4DTVers published unlocked channels in the 80s & 90s.

I don't see the harm in Shaw Direct explaining the policy for us and providing some concrete examples on what is valid and what is not.

Simply saying "call us and we can talk" is ridiculous, consumers should have a clear understanding of what is acceptable under the terms of service and what is not.

Can't let a grey area be to the advantage of the consumer? Let it be already!

The harm is it will disappear!! And then we get to phone them and cancel one account and renew another and no recordings at home while away.(Just because cable can't provide that same service and they will complain about the rules).

PS Delete this if you like(of course) but that is the reason.

That's what happened to Bell if I remember correctly. Some cable company made a complaint to the CRTC and Bell was forced to discontinue their open HAFH program. Now all they can offer is to shut down either the home or camper receivers, both can't be activated at the same time. Bell did not want to do this, the CRTC forced them. Since Shaw wasn't mentioned in the ruling, they kept going and going as before.

Some policies are better left in a grey area, especially if it benefits the customers.

Thank You.
Not everything in life needs to be black and white.

If people with other providers don't like the grey area SD offers, switch providers.

I don't think a majority of us care what it is or isn't. Sounds like if you call them they'll tell you if you qualify. Hugh, have you thought about contacting them then posting the answer yourself rather than deleting others posts?

Shaw direct primary residence and country home hook up

Hi all,

I am trying to see if there are any offers regarding having two receivers setup but without paying the full monthly price for both . We have a country home that we attend to very weekly which we need one receiver and our primary residence with another.

Are there any offers that would discount on a second receiver at another residence without having to pay full price ?

Thx

Your post was moved to this existing thread where the topic of HAFH is discussed. You should read the earlier posts and discuss your situation with Shaw Direct.

Ok thx for moving to this post.

I guess there is no clear answer and i would just have to call Shaw based on the answers here. Bell apparently has said it's not possible to receive any offers of this kind ( well they just lost a customer ).

Am I the only one that has asked this question to shaw in the past 6 months ? . If I read between the lines , I will probably get a categorical "not possible".
