Thumbs up

This is good news. I had been in touch with the station manager and had requested that Global Maritimes be added back to Shaw Direct.

We have few options for local TV news in the Maritimes. On recent weekends when CTV carrys football, there has been no 6pm news from the Maritimes on Shaw Direct.

Thumbs down

There has been no local newscast in the Capital of this country when there is football on CTV. Shame. You have to watch a short newscast on their website. Sorry for getting off topic.

Why don't they just air CTV Newscasts on A Channel when they can't air them on CJOH? I can't imagine A Channel is showing anything important at 6:00pm on a Sunday evening.

254 on the classic lineup.

No rush though, the video was 16:9 letter boxed on all four sides.

January 31, 2011 Channel Launches

HGTV HD - 254 Classic / 367 Advanced
Global Maritimes - 329 Classic / 60 Advanced
Global Montreal (Modulation change from 8PSK to QPSK) - 330 Classic / 59 Advanced.

All channels are now live and you should be able to direct tune. If you have an HDDSR 605 or HDPVR 630 and the channels do not appear in the Guide, perform a Front Panel Reset and they should appear.

I wonder if it is not part of the Ontario value pack.

I'm not washed up yet

I can get Global Montreal by punching in the channel number but its not showing up in my guide. I have a 630. I did a front panel reset and no luck.
