Technically MTS has more channel than Shaw does for free HD, unless of course you count Turkey TV/Pumpkin TV/Fireplace TV as an actual channel. Technically MTS has more HD channels than Shaw period, unless you want to get into counting all the HD ppv/sports channels that MTS doesn't have yet.
Truth be told I like Fireplace TV and hope that MTS will offer it in HD again this year.

Saw this in another thread.

These non-stop, commercial-free holiday music channels are always a big hit with our listeners. We are pleased to offer them to you again this year.

Best wishes to all for the holiday season!

Does anybody know what happened to Turner Classic Movies on MTS? It seems to have disappeared.

Do you subscribe to the Family theme? If not, then it was just a free preview. Then again, i'm not with MTS anymore, so I can't offer any more insight on the situation at this point in time. Although it is still listed on their site.

Well it seems to be back today. I do subscribe to the family theme group but yesterday the channel was completely gone. If you searched in the guide it said channel 160 was nothing and there was nothing on the channel and when you went to the channel it said it was unavailable.

W Movies replaces Sex TV in the Lifestyle theme and Sundance replaces Drive-in in the Movie Picks theme. These changes were made by Corus (the channel owner) as discussed elsewhere in the forum.

I haven't heard anything about Centre Ice - although I've been told that Sunday Ticket is already in the works. I suppose it would make sense if you pick up one to pick up the other - but at the same time, that's more channels you have to secure and another contract.

MTS has quietly added the English language Russian news network RT (Russia Today) on channel 147. It appears to currently be available to all subscribers.

I just checked mts.ca and they've added RT to the NEWS theme. I already subscribe to that theme so I can't tell if everyone gets RT. It's not in "What's New" (yet).

Edit: I checked a while ago, but forgot to add it here. "Free preview untill further notice."
