Don't you have to buy super channel as a 4 channel package? I don't think anyone would ever subscribe to SC just by watching heart and home. If i remember correctly, heart and home are just old tv shows and movies that you can see anywhere else.

Fuse is really the only interesting channel SC has to offer. The other 2 are old movies and tv shows and Ginx is mostly talking heads with no actual tournament action.

Shaw Cable changed their web page to say that YTV and W Network end Nov. 17.

@Classy1 Yes the 4 Super Channels are one package. My guess is they scheduled the free preview to start Thanksgiving weekend to tie into the Heart & Home theme of the channel. The package would probably be more appealing to a family that has diverse tastes.

Super Channel Heart & Home airs quite a bit of the Hallmark Channel content, which is unique (and highly requested!).

I think the W network is more hallmark channel than Heart and home. Which is funny because the W network costs lower than heart and home.

@Classy1 even a doctor can't fix what's wrong at Shaw. I heard they put BBC World News on preview instead of BBC Earth for several days until somebody probably complained and they realized their mistake.

I looked at Shaw Cable's preview page a few times over the last week and noticed they had Crave TV on preview, but no mention of HBO, as recently as Tuesday morning. Crave issued a press release confirming the preview on Shaw and will probably include some titles on demand.

"From Friday, Feb. 14 to Sunday, Feb. 16, three of Crave’s premium linear channels – Crave 1, HBO 1, HBO 2 – will be available free of charge..."
