In the end, if the number of distinct programs is similar to the US Discovery HD, we have nothing to complain about. They are also rotating and repeating all the time, but what can you do - there is only finite amount of relevant HD programming avaliable worldwide at this point. Discovery is not like Jay Leno or Good Morning America, where hours of new HD programming are created every day.
Actually the main complaint over the last couple of years is that the CRTC never got around to approving the real Discovery HD Theater. The current channel is a joke and didn't even exist when the application for the US version was submitted to the CRTC. But that's a topic for another thread
Back on topic, good news for you Canadians who have yet to experience the programs you see being promoted in Best Buy stores
Looking forward to seeing this channel and how it compares to its US cousin. Like other new HD channels, I'll wait a few months before passing judgement but hoping for the best.
Is Shaw going to carry this? I know Discovery HD will launch but it's up to the individual cable/satellite providers if they want to carry it isn't it? If so, does anybody know if Shaw will be carrying this?
I have an email into Discovery HD asking about what cablesystems will be carrying it. I think at this point, its safe to say that if your cable or satellite company is not carrying the old Discovery HD, its doubtful they'll have the new version on Monday.
