Talking Shaw Cable Official Channel Announcement Thread

In order to de-clutter the Channel Discussion threads from previous years, only post here if a new channel announcement or old channel deletion has been:

1. Posted on the Shaw's website, Facebook page or Twitter feed or on their forums.
2. Been announced through a Press release.
3. Shows up on the dial.
4. Or if a statement is issued on your cable bill.

All commenting and discussions need to be made in the Shaw Cable Channel Discussion Thread:
http://www.digitalhome.ca/forum/showthread.php?t=227138

Not following the rules will result in your post being deleted... not moved.

When it comes to humility, I am the greatest!

If you are in the Kamloops area - CIVT - CTV Vancouver HD (Channel 210) will launch in Kamloops, BC on the dial today (February 10, 2015)
In order to launch this channel, CFTO - CTV Toronto HD will move from channel 210 to 217.

Shaw Employee, Opinions are my own unless otherwise stated.

This was posted on the Shaw Community Forum. Does this mean no Disney in French?

On August 31st, 2015, Shaw will no longer be carrying GOL TV, NHL Network and Apna Sangeet. These stations have decided to cease broadcasting at this time and can no longer be offered by any television service provider.

As of September 1st, 2015, Teletoon Retro- French is ceasing broadcasting and will no longer be offered by Shaw Cable.

Also no mention of any of the new channels, though zap2it lists Disney as being on 187, at least here, as well as YTV, Disney, Disney XD, and Family HD channels being listed in the 190s. Zap2it is usually correct.

I also don't know much about this but Shaw has listed LCN HD as being on free preview in a couple of weeks but last I checked they don't offer that, so i'm guessing it's being added. Who knows maybe they are finally adding some French HD channels.

Not sure if this is new for everyone, but I just noticed MuchMusic was added in HD on channel 276 here in Lloydminster.

I confirmed the following channels are live on Shaw in Winnipeg:

67 Cartoon Network replaced Teletoon Retro English (channel number may vary by region)
187 Disney SD
195 Disney HD
276 Much HD
911 LCN - Le Canal Nouvelles is in the guide

No other new channels were added in the 186-198 range, although Shaw may put the new Corus Disney Junior and Disney XD channels there in December.

The Cartoon Network guide incorrectly shows the old programs from Teletoon Retro, but the actual content is Cartoon Network.

911 is LCN SD - there is no LCN HD on Shaw Cable. The Shaw web site seems to have listed LCN HD as a free preview in error, since they don't carry that channel.

LCN (SD) is available on channel 917 in North Vancouver (Shaw). Shaw doesn't carry any French HD, as far as I know.

LCN HD is carried by Shaw Direct which is probably where the error originated. Only Winnipeg has a French HD channel, the local Ici Radio-Canada Tele affiliate CBWFT-DT. Not sure why Regina, Edmonton and Vancouver don't get it considering these markets also have a local affiliate.
