I know Shaw has a digital package here in Winnipeg were you can get Basic Cable and 4 Us superstations and 40 Channels of commercial free music for 21.95, they call it Digital Basic.
Regarding the channels being filtered out, they are always there, just when you have a STB (DCT 2000,2500,5100 or 6200) hooked up they send a code to your box and it only allows you to view the channels you have paid for. Kinda like if you don't subscribe to Tiers 1,2 or 3 they put a filter on your line to block them, the STB is the filter which only allows you the channels you have ordered.
Thats what I believe it does, someone correct me if I am wrong
