does anyone know anything new regarding playhouse disney? looking at past posts, looks like people were expecting it q1 last year (2008) and as far as i know it looks like shaw direct still doesn't have it.

thanks

This is only opinion but it appears obvious that the only new channels they intend to add are sports' channels and HD and more likely, HD channels which are sports.

yes, that seems to be the case, i called customer service last night, basically they said 'we have lots of requests for playhouse disney'

so my response 'then why don't you offer it or have plans to offer it?'

their response 'there must be not enough interest'



as an aside- they did say they plan on offering more hd channels this year including score hd in probably oct/nov.

Strangely enough, they will offer channels with absolutely no history to them, like Cosmo. I'm sure it has nothing to do with the fact that it's a Corus channel.

Wow, a new sports' channel in HD - who would have guessed?

O' please, NO MORE SPORTS !!! But I might could go for them bringing the Lincoln Financial feeds for the SEC and ACC college football games to one of the promo or Shaw Direct channels, that's about it. Well? They have the Big Ten.

those are the 'c' series sec and acc games, cbs picks up the big ones and then espn/espn2 get the next level of games. if somehow they could get the espn/espn2 feeds, then that would be heaven!

Should be noted that LF will no longer be carrying SEC football/basketball games, given the league's new deal w/ ESPN.

WPCH is Peachtree TV, the former WTBS. WPCH are its new call letters.

Exclamation

Probably going to see Newsworld HD, since the CBC has been advertising it extensively. I wish they would put on FOX News HD, but their too busy trying to find an excuse to drop FOX News to do so. It would be pretty lame, if they put CNN or MSNBC in HD, before Fox News, considering that FOX destroys them both in the U.S. ratings. Might be nice to see the Score in HD, as well.

Interestingly, though, CNN always beats Fox News in the ratings when something "big" happens - when Michael Jackson died, CNN had better ratings.
