I checked MTS website and they do have 30 HD channels listed, some that Shaw doesn't, but nothing too different except for the HD HIFI channels, but it seems they are putting them into five theme groups (networks, sports, etc.) and charging for each of the five groups (if I reading it correctly).
Yah, but you can get a free PVR from Shaw so easily and you won't have to pay to use it. The only difference in channels that MTS has are the hi-fi channles but they give you the basic HD channels or HD Networks where the only channel given away in MTS is CBC HD (whoppie doo)

Also the charge is only $8 a month from MTS in case I confused you. The charges are 3 for the rental and 5 for the PVR service.

It can record 3 programs at once.

If you want to check out the new service, you can go to MTS TV and change your location to Portage. There's even a user guide you can download.
