TMN is finally available on demand!

Nothing is mentioned about this on the Shaw Direct website, but trust me, it is now available. Go check it out.

Not seeing it on the web the only thing I am seeing is Movie Central and Super Channel. Maybe what is available on/through the 630 is different.

Yup it is there. Pretty out of sync though.

It's on the VOD. You have to subscribe to TMN in order to get the movies. Just press the "D" button on your remote to get into the VOD. Lots of movies listed from TMN but greyed out for me since I don't subscribe to TMN.

email from SD- technical escalation desk...

"TMN and HBO East content is now available through VOD on your receivers. Please note that they will be marked “TMN” and the Movie Central content will show as unsubscribed."

I requested to be informed when it was available... pretty good personal service!

I've never used VOD once (too cheap), but I subscribe to TMN and HBO. Do I have to activated by Shaw for VOD use? I don't connect to land lines (cell only). Any advice?

You have to have your receiver hooked up to your router to get VOD.

something tells me if an IP address south of 49 is detected....no way? in other words, will snowbirds be able to access VOD?

Correct

You are quite correct. If it detects a "southern" isp it won't work. The same in reverse, if you are a snowbird with a Dish Network receiver, it won't do VOD in Canada. The fat cats who own the movies and networks have it all tied up.
A word of warning - don't hook up your receiver to broadband if you are out of country. It could be detected and they will cut off your service. Same applies to the phone line.

A "friend" has a DN system in Canada and tested it out. Fortunately, my "friend" also has a US address, so all is well! Wink wink, nudge nudge!
