With the delay of the satellite launch does this mean we will not get the channels for some long period of time??
Most likely unless Shaw stops being stubborn and starts migrating existing services to MPEG-4. That will at least allow them to start adding more of the specialty HD channels and perhaps a few locals from Toronto and Vancouver.
The thing to take from this is, don't expect much this calendar year and perhapse even the first half of next year (depending on the length of the delay)
