Well I called Shaw today, and I was reminded of their excellent customer service. Within minutes I was talking to a rep, and after putting me on hold for about 8 minutes to review my last 9 months of billing (the entire time I've been a customer) he realized I had not been getting the bundle discount after my promotional period ended so credit that amount to my account.
As additional compensation, I was given SC and MC free for a month and half and it is set to auto-cancel so I don't have to call in to cancel if I don't want to keep it.
brucered I do realize that my bill is still a bit high, and will likely switch to 1 or 2 al la carte channels and ditch the time shift eventually, but it does only save about $11 doing so. I'll not drop the HD nor will I drop the extreme internet. I'm not one who likes to wait for downloads, for I appreciate the 15 Mb downloads. For what it's worth, I use voip.ms for my phone service at $0 a month and 1/2 cent a minute, so I could never see paying shaw for their phone service.
I appreciate all the responses, even though my question was not totally warranted. I'm just used to dealing with bell and years ago Time Warner in the states.
