Wonder if they are going to add the new B.C. Global1 24hr news channel. I realize unless you are a transplanted B.C. person that anyone in the rest of Canada could care less about this. In defence of that statement we have Citypulse 24.in the west,I sympathize with you Toronto drivers your traffic is busy but doesn't affect me at all.

The statement that any new channel will appear on Shaw Direct in April sounds to me like the news readers have been drinking the "new satellite" Kool Aid.

I'm sure they will find somewhere to squeeze the SD version of the channel in the lineup before the new satellite is launched.

You seem surprised!

This is not a new channel. They have been around for a year or two. It's a group of 4 HD channels that require a lot of bandwidth which SD doesn't have at the moment. SD could add them this summer when the new satellite is up and running.

Yikes! November 20, 2011 was the launch date.

First I heard of it but guess that means I am a Shaw Direct subscriber with no access to new channels.

Shawdirect may have the least amount of HD channels compared to everyone else but at least they make it up to their customers by not constantly raising their prices.

I hate to tell you this but Shaw Direct is raising their price again by $4.00 a month for everyone starting April 1st. No foolin'. And they've basically done nothing to earn this $4.00 increase.
