Several 'channels' added to the guide this morning stating that the duplicate HD channels in the 300s are to be (finally) removed. Also noted on the xKu channel (988?) it states that up-to 26 HD channels are coming in 2017. I would hope they would have a shuffle of the guide to accommodate things in a logical order, but it doesn't seem this will happen.
Shaw Direct TV (002/299) isn't in HD (though I would like it to be), but they do simulcast sports in HD occasionally on HD Sports 1 and HD Sports 2. I know they have done this for WHL, which for most of last season was blacked out in SD but not in HD - this year it's all blacked-out. I think they occasionally used to use those channels for Hockey Night in Canada with the Punjabi commentary back when CBC had it.
