Shaw adds a new channel (sort of)

Not to be outdone by the competitors, Shaw has added a new channel... if you can call it that. :roll:

In Victoria they have just added Channel 1 to the lineup. Unfortunately, it appears to be one long commercial for Shaw services/channels. It is listed as "1 SHAW", Prevue content description is "Sneak Peek".

I haven't noticed any other changes to the channel lineup yet, unfortunately.

Gee... thanks for the great new content Shaw! :lol:

I noticed Channel 1 on the digital box last night. However, I also noticed that channel 48, Shaw's Sneak Peak or Preview channel locally here in Kelowna BC, was carrying the same signal. I just check and Channel 48 in analog format is carrying Channel 55, the Movie Central channel. It can also be accessed through the digital box on Channel 1 or Channel 48.

yeah its an anolog content of MC channel 55 but its not showing the same movies that are currently on there its a one day anolog preview and it shows up on all digital boxes as channel 1 and the other channel (separate for each area is the one they have assigned for anolog tv's to watch without a digital box), because anolog can not get channel 1 on shaw

Rogers also has the same thing. Channel 1 is used as a barker for PPV.

Channel 1 here in Rogers is also used for Info Channel/ So the action use of the Channel PPV Preview/ INFO channel.
