Shaw Direct Flyer - recent offer, rec'd Jan 2013 in Kingston
We received a FLYER from SHAW DIRECT, very recently, Jan 2013, at the house in Kingston Ontario.
What they are offering us, for the amount of money and the channels / content / package offered - if true - appears to be pretty DARN GOOD to me.
In brief: For a 3 year contract, for around 65 bucks a month, quite a few popular channels, quite a few in HD, an HD receiver with PVR included for free, a promotion: the first three months at around 30 bucks a month, and then around 65 bucks a month after that.
I gave a call to the toll free number, and spoke live with a representative to try and confirm.
We've got COGECO CABLE in Kingston, and it seems to me, that this SHAW DIRECT offer - blows away what COGECO can offer.
With this SHAW DIRECT offer: TCM, Multicultural content, and other valuable content all included - if true.
The Devil may be in the Details- with this offer ... but that is my initial impression - The recent SHAW DIRECT offer in that flyer looks pretty darn good and good value.
plus: With Cogeco: NO TCM, Turner Classic Movies possible with COGECO.
Plus - I have noted personally / personal experience - that COGECO is NOT very responsive to customer requests. I have tried many times, in person, and in writing with their "process" and even by opening "trouble tickets".
We have had a LOSS of some servcies we used to have with COGECO - and they're just not listening to us, the customer.
That recent SHAW DIRECT offer is looking pretty darn GOOD.
SHAW must be pulling customers right away from COGECO Kingston ... with offers like that.
Not sure ... but wanted to mention .
If it were up to me personally, I'd switch right away, and give it a try.
[ Dear COGECO, Listening ? ]
