Leafs Tv, formerly on channel 729, is now gone from the guide in Halifax. Actually, I was surprised to see that channel at all on the East coast, since I thought it was only licensed to be carried in Ontario. I think Eastlink was allowed to carry it during he AHL playoffs.
I am still surprised that Eastlink has not picked up National Geographic Wild, which is a Shaw owned channel. As far as I can recall, Eastlink has never had too many issues with Shaw, and has been pretty good about carrying their channels. Hence, Eastlink's failure to pick this one is a puzzle.
As for Bell owned channels, we can only wait and see what happens during those June 29th hearings, but I am not holding my hopes too high.
I am still unhappy about Eastlink's failure to pick up the Weather Network in HD. I would even be content with the " National version", if the issue is indeed due to the problems inserting local forecasts.
In other stuff, I only wish that Eastlink would offer Superchannel movies in HD on their on demand service.
