|Dr.Dave||Thanks @vdemasi - I guess they just did the old Videon head-end west of the Red on January 28 and are doing the Cablevision head-end on February 4.|

|vdemasi||As of last Thursday night the St. Vital area was still receiving analog signals, but every 30 minutes or so there would be a crawl across the screen saying you needed a digital box as of February 4th to continue to receive the channel.|

I've heard that Shaw Winnipeg is showing a full screen on all analog channels saying that you need a digital box, so they pulled the analog feed on schedule. Is anyone in any areas of Winnipeg still receiving analog channels?
@thenewdc I believe other cities have already gone all-digital.
@cslusarc I'm curious about what happened in your situation.

|thenewdc||Does anyone know if any of SHAW's cablesystems are completely digital with analog completely gone??|

|DSgamby||If only the DCT700 or whatever SD box is sold out.|

We get basic cable and Tier 1 included with our condo fee but the customer has to supply the cable box either by rental or purchase. Our system has been all-digital for about a year and a half now.|

|sherds||You'll probably have to buy a box of some sort but in our building in Vancouver i believe those who still have the basic package that comes with with their rent still have it but needed the box .|

I'm not sure if all areas of Winnipeg are going all-digital. If your building is affected, you should see a crawl at least once an hour on analog channels.
Shaw has various agreements with building owners. It's possible the pricing agreement will continue. Some agreements include one digital box per suite which allows you to order VOD and additional channels. Your condo board should be able to answer your questions in your specific case.

|thenewdc||Maybe they'll install a DSAN in your building|

|cslusarc||If Winnipeg goes all-digital, does this mean that Shaw is discontinuing grandfathered Basic Cable and Classic Cable? My condo has a bulk rate contract for Classic Cable.|

|thenewdc||I thought Rogers was slow at removing Analog but SHAW is way behind the pack. I wonder why it's taking them so long.|

|Dr.Dave||Winnipeg will be going all-digital January 28, 2016.|

|mismag||Why would they lose? People would switch to Telus or Bell and use a box anyway?|
