I contacted Shaw, they told me they new Rodgers had the new Fox sports racing, but they have no intention of carrying at this time.

I also contacted Shaw Direct and the advisor stated that he had no information on the channel to give out. He still thought it was closing until I pointed him to the press release, upon which time he promptly disconnected the chat window. First bad service I've ever had from SD.

Discovery channel

Did I miss something? My Discovery channel looks like it's gone, and replaced with Discovery about cars. Talk about minimalizing your audience. Is that something that's really wanted, since there are already other channels dedicated to the topic?

Guess you missed the following thread:

It's not Discovery Channel, it's Discovery World. Discovery should still be there.

I understand once the price for WWE is $11.99 a month and that BEIN sports is $14.99 a month is this true?

Doesn't look like a free preview...I'm sorry but $12 for old Wrestlemania and a few documentaries way to much

Talking WWE Network well worth the $12 a month.

That $12 also includes the upcoming Wrestlemania which previously used to cost like $60 or $70 Canadian to get. That $12 a month also includes every PPV each month. So for the real wrestling fan like myself it's a great value plus most of those documentaries and reruns are fun to watch. I have been subscribing to the American version of the channel since Feb. of 2014 which is costing me $9.99US/$12CDN a month plus another $4 a month for an unblocking service.

All right didn't know there was live events as well...that does make a difference. I'm not a big fan scince UFC has become so popular but, I can see the value for Wrestling fans
