Old Thread Resurrect? Wondering if anyone was able to broker a "bundling" discount with Shaw Cable lately, based on being a Shaw Direct subscriber?

I get 10% of Shaw Cable Internet because I have Shaw Direct.

Appreciate your answer!

How long ago did you get this deal?
Did you get any guff about Shaw Cable and Shaw Direct being two separate companies? How was this resolved?

Thanks to the input in the early part of this thread, I was able to get like $10 of of a Bundle with Shaw highspeed Internet and what's called Home Phone with features, about 4 years ago. I w=asked about it on chat, got the "can't do that, we're 2 separate companies" response, quoted back this thread and mentioned the CRTC decision and example of someone getting a discount. They gave me the discount, but at the time I had to upgrade my highspeed internet one notch to get it - all good.

Then I moved, dropped Shaw telephone/internet for awhile, then moved again. I have telephone lite set up, and was eyeing the deal to get (essentially) free upgrade to Telephone w/features for the basic telephone price for 6 months (* the asterisk says must be new to that service and subscribe to one other service). Hmmm went my mind could SD be "one other service"?

So was just curious whethere there was any well established deals (SD-SC bundling) going now, other whether things had died down (and SC happy to leave it that way).

Not true. Shaw merge the two companies several years ago. Keeping Star Choice (now Shaw Direct) as a separate company was originally a condition of purchase (some 13-14 or so years back) but that condition was later dropped by the CRTC. The decision may even go as far back as the name change. I'd try again. Maybe you will get a more knowledgeable CSR the next time. If not, citing the CRTC decision to allow the merger would be very gratifying.
