You missed my point. Increases never make me happy, but sometimes increase are justified, or at least somewhat understood.
With Shaw Direct, ...It's hey, here's some useless channels you don't want, you're paying for it. Hey, we finally got you guys a new guide 8 years late, you're paying for it and hey, we lost 6k customers, you're paying for it.
I have been with Shaw Direct for over 10 years, and they have raised my bill every single year without fail. I remember when Shaw Direct was Star Choice and their whole mantra was that they were different from cable....Yeah, right. Can't tell any of these crooks (Rogers, Bell, Shaw) apart nowadays.
