Has allot to do with nearby uplink centres. It gives Shaw Direct, competition with the local cable companies, in some of the bigger markets. Seattle is a natural for the Vancouver area and when they had Buffalo, it was a natural for Toronto. Over time, they switched off the Buffalo stations, mostly due to technical issues with the picture quality, from Buffalo. It would be interesting, however, to see some more exotic locations for U.S. locals, say New York and Los Angeles, or something similar.
