Shaw Direct HD Wish List!

Please post a list of 10 HD channels that you would like Shaw Direct to launch. These HD Channels do not have to be currently offered by any other provider in Canada. Please try to limit the number of "currently unavailable to Canadian's" channels if possible (MTV HD etc.)

My List:

CBC News Network HD
CNN HD
Spike HD
CBC Vancouver HD
CTV BC HD
City TV Toronto HD
Global BC HD
CBC Edmonton HD
CTV Calgary HD
Global Winnipeg HD

I could only come up with one

CBC Vancouver HD... then replace the Toronto feed with Ottawa or Montreal.

And use the free space from SD 8PSK conversion to raise the bitrate for all HD....

One can always dream ....

Okay in order

Raptors TV HD
CBC Ottawa HD or CBC Montreal HD (for Habs or Sens games in 16:9 SD or HD)
CBC Vancouver HD
Bold HD
Gol TV HD (I know it doesn't exist yet, but it should soon)
Global HD (for In Plain Sight)
Citytv HD (for Law & Order: UK)
CBC News Channel HD
Spike HD

That is all I could come up with. Really only the top 3-5 are ones I really want.

seanwrestledude, CBC Edmonton and Global Winnipeg don't have HD channels, and I doubt they will any time soon, especially Global Winnipeg.

I wasn't aware of this as I figured the big 3 (CBC, CTV, Global) already had HD channels in all the major Canadian cities. Below is my revised list:

CBC News Network HD
CNN HD
Spike HD
NFL Network HD
CBC Vancouver HD
CTV Vancouver HD
Global Vancouver HD
City TV Toronto HD
CTV Calgary HD
CTV Edmonton HD

NFL Sunday Ticket: ALL games should be HD (not just a couple). At a minimum it should have the same amount of games in HD as NHL Centre Ice offers.
Also Spike HD would be great.
