Probably, but I didn't see it reported in this thread. Maybe I just missed it?

Hollywood Suite channels must be on the new sat, which I cannot get. Does this mean the standard def versions are also on the new sat?

MikeDRiley, I believe that means that the Hollywood Suite Channel numbers are 156 - 159 in the Classic guide and 656 - 659 in the Advanced guide. All 4 channels have been HD from the beginning. They never had SD versions.

I thought Hollywood Suite was on a freeview until January 15, but apparently not. We lost it today.

Question

Today Hollywood Suite is greyed out in the guide ,but I'm still able to watch them for now.
When I looked on shaw direct's web site I couldn't find anything about adding them ,found a link for the price($5.01),but when you click on add it just takes you to the general
Programming web page and no sign of Hollywood Suite.
Anyone have any idea's?
