MTS has announced another mysterious update will occur between Sept 18 and 20th for ultimate tv customers. source

Based on past updates this will likely bring some changes to channels, including the removal of TVTroplios West and Showcase West which have been discountinued and are currently running as exact mirrors of the east feed. It will also likely rename the old Teletoon West feed to Cartoon Network Canada to reflect the recent change. This set of changes will also likely place ABC Spark into one of the theme groups as the free preview is scheduled to end soon.

It remains unclear what will be happening with TSN Jets and TSN Jets HD due to the lockout.

The updated PDF for the new brochure as of today is missing 4 channels that were originally announced before:
1221 Super myTV38 Boston HD
1222 Super WGN 9 Chicago HD
1224 Super KTLA Los Angeles HD
1347 Timeshift East CBC HD Halifax

Also the link I posted earlier has them missing now as well. The odd thing is the paper brochure I picked up at my local Connect store still shows the first three listed. So was this a last minute change? Can anyone confirm if these channels were added or not?

I went into Set-up to update my channels tonight, and I saw there's a new option for a "Second Screen". Apparently you can use an iPhone app to access extra information about whatever you're watching.
I'm probably not going to use it, since I know how to Google something without an app telling me what to look for, but I thought I'd mention it.
