New Pace/Shaw equipment launching Sept 30th
On Sept 30th Shaw will be launching 3 new products.
Pace Whistler: A dual tuner 160GB PVR with analogue tuner which will be available for rent in all markets (replacing Pace Aspen and Tahoe rentals) and available for purchase in non-all digital markets as the current model of PVR for sale.
Shaw PVR Expander: a 1TB hard drive that can be attached to any existing Pace PVR and (once an upgrade completes in late October) most Motorola PVRs (those with sata connections)
Pace Summit: An HD DCT that by itself replaces the Motorola 6200 (non-pvr hd dct) however with a Shaw PVR Expander it becomes a dual tuner PVR with 1TB of storage. This will be sold as a 2-in-1 unit (along with the PVR Expander) and will be the current PVR available for sale in all digital markets going forward after Sept 30th.
Now that is not to say that Shaw will be getting out of using Motorola products but Pace will be the units for sale for the near future. (pure speculation on my part here) I think Motorola will eventually come out with a bigger and better product that Shaw may launch but right now there are no new products from them.
