I have an email into them regarding this, but quite honestly I'm not expecting a very knowledgeable/satisfying reply. I'll post the response when I receive it.

I just gave them a call and asked if Shaw will be carrying Discovery HD - they told me: "We are in discussions to sign an agreement with them right now. We are trying."

505 in Toronto.

If you ever need a digital channel guide, you can find it by looking at the Rogers site, digital channel lineup pdf after you put in your location...

Thanks, 57! So, it's replacing the previous "American" Discovery Channel (at 505, I believe) in the premium package?

I don't know but I would assume if your cable or satellite provider carries it and you have an HD package of any type, you will get this channel for the preview.

Just le'ts hope for the best this evening! If the former HD Channel (example 664 on Videotron) substitutes for the new content, then the 664 on Videotron will get the new signal! And the same for other providers!

So, we shouldn't worry too much! But the truth moment will be at 20h00 this evening, for anyone!

And if not, well... can we live without Discovery HD, without jeopardy for our lifes? Bless the Universe to provide the righty signal at the righty time!

The Discovery HD Countdown Loop - Sound Dropouts

On Rogers channel 242 looks amazing. I'm experiencing periodic sound dropouts, however.
