Disney XD and Disney Junior are different channels. XD is for the Pre-teen demographic whereas Jr is for the Toddler Demographic.

According to the Shaw Direct website Disney Junior is on Freeview til January. They have put it in Digital Favourites and Fun Stuff (theme pack). We have Digital Indulgence Lite, How do we know if we will get the channel beyond the Freeview period??

Is it just me, or has CHIN Radio appeared (re-appeared?) on channel 827 (Advanced)? I thought on the Advanced line-up it should be on 491?

Noticed TVO was back on the guide last night (I think at 55? (Advanced)). Not exactly a new channel, but a welcome return none-the-less.

NHL Center Ice transponder space

Here's a crazy thought. If the NHL season gets cancelled in January, Shaw should just temporarily do away with all the NHL PPV channels and add a bunch of new stuff. Right now all that transponder space is being wasted while the players and owners throw poo at each other.

No need to wait for G1 to be put into service if there is no NHL.

That transponder space is used for the PPV channels when there is no sporting events like hockey and football.
