ShawDirect is taking work away from Designate Installers in BC. These guys have worked hard to build a business, and were the front line people between Shaw and Subscribers.
The job didn't pay much but installers could survive.
The cable side of Shaw will be taking over Installing and servicing Shaw Direct systems from what I am hearing. They have been doing this in Prince George, And apparently. starting Apr 1 the southern part of Vancouver Island .
