I really just don't get why Shaw is not interested in having a competitive HD channel line-up for their cable systems. They never have. They have improved Shaw Direct's quite a bit over the past few years but for whatever reason they aren't interested in adding anything to their cable systems. Has there even been an HD channel addition in the last year?
I don't get why at the very least they don't carry CTV News Channel HD, E! HD, Teletoon HD, Cartoon Network HD, Family Jr HD, ABC Spark HD, Fight Network HD, beIN Sports HD, TCM HD, NBA TV Canada HD. This would at least bring them on par with Shaw Direct English specialty channels.
Additionally, what is to stop them from launching these channels which will all be carried by Shaw Direct later this year.
MTV HD, Spike HD, CMT HD, Gusto HD, NFL Network HD, WPIX HD, Crime + Investigation HD, OWN HD and Travel + Escape HD.
