that is in the theme pack area, I am on an old grandfathered package (with the old hd+) that I really don't want to change, can you still add packs to it?

Shaw Skinny TV

https://community.shaw.ca/docs/DOC-6542

From the Shaw site it looks like they will be offering the skinny package, that they refer to as limited tv on Feb 16.

Quote:
As of February 16, 2016, the minimum level of TV service offered to customers in BC is “Limited TV” – the package mandated by the CRTC and priced at $25.00/mo. As this will be the basis of the PST exemption for BC Cable TV customers moving forward, the billed amount of PST on your invoice will increase.

Still to be determined is whether Shaw will punish 'Limited TV' subscribers by charging them more for their telephone or internet service.

I would hope they would not do that but if so then move to Telus. My internet and home phone through Telus are cheaper than Shaw's and dead reliable. I await what will be included with Limited TV and if it does include the local PBS (Seattle) station then its good enough for me. Somehow I fear that it wont as Shaw knows how many loyal PBS viewers there are. If I am wrong I will be back to congratulate them. Right now Shaw TV is the only service I have with them and I have never been impressed with Optik but it remains an option at least.

Another interesting nugget. According to Shaw if you don't like the skinny basic and stay with Personal TV instead you will no longer get the PST exemption. So that is approx. another 3 dollars a month heading out of your wallet. Granted, not Shaws fault. If you are in BC then send a thank you note to Christy Clark. I understand she impersonates a Premier from time to time when there are no photo ops to be had.

Actually the message is 41 was the min and now 25 is the min so PST extra should just be 7% on $16 which is 1.12

Which Shaw could easily absorb on behalf of those who choose to keep the costlier packages. Instead, they seem to be throwing the increase in their customers' faces.

If your needs are minimal, the Shaw Starter Package is the cheapest.

Shaw Internet 5 $53
Shaw Phone $15
Shaw Personal TV $43
$111 per mo

If Shaw doesn't get petulant, that $111 could drop to $93 with skinny basic. We'll see.
