HD Time Shift

Does anyone know whether MTS will be offering East HD Time Shift channels in addition to the West Shift channels?

Macman Nope, I think it's an error. It doesn't show it on the webpage, but if you click the link to the PDF file it still says $5. Good call, though.

Mozza Is it just me, or did anyone else notice that they no longer list a "rental price" for the PVR service? I guess they are making it a standard feature now?

I also noticed last night that NCIS on the Western ABC HD feed had a Global TV logo on the bottom right of the screen. And the picture quality was crap. Yay.
Please let us know what the billing dept. says when you phone about HD Time shift channels. Thank you.

SomeRandomGuy The Time Shift HD doesn't require you to subscribe to SD equivalent. I called in yesterday cancelled my SD Time Shift and added the HD Time Shift. Since I had an extra package already I ended up only paying $.50 more for HD over what I was paying for SD.

I watched NCIS yesterday, the quality was fine for me, although I can't recall channel I watched it on. I did spend a lot of time on Discovery, History, and Fox west, and they were all extremely good quality. Particularly Discovery HD.

Mozza Fair enough - they are separate packages... but suddenly my MTS service is pretty close if not more expensive than what I was getting with Shaw. So much for my great 6 month promotion...
2009-10-28 09:26 AM
vjose78 Well Timeshifting and Discovery are seperate packages. I don't know if your supposed to get them just because you subscribe to the regular SD feed.
2009-10-28 09:06 AM
Mozza Well, noticed this morning I'm not getting the timeshifted HD channels, or DISC or HIST HD. Guess I need to add those (and pay more, even though I have the SD versions of all of them?)... not happy about that one bit.

Yup, sorry for the mistakes.

The new channels in packages I already subscribed to were working this morning. Ones I didn't subscribe to were in teh guide but had a black screen saying that channel is unavailable. Called MTS from work and subscribed to the new channel HD channel packs. They should be there now, but can't check until I get home tonight.

So doesn't look like any free previews at this point.
