i currently have ontario life which has gone up to $91 and i have a pick2 channel pack which has climbed to a criminal price of $9, and then add on the $5.99 multi receiver fee which is also criminal and my price after taxes got to over $119 a month.
I guess my option is to drop SD or try and go to a cheaper package. I was thinking of the medium package which is $93 and after taxes would be like $105 and still expensive but I would save about $15/month. Any recommendations on the best value package for your money would be greatly appreciated.
SD fluffs up the number of base channels by including dozens of CTV, Global, CBC etc. from pretty much every city in canada which to me is an absolute waste and pointless.

All of the older packages are no longer advertised online - I would recommend asking what your Theme Packs are, as that'll help you narrow down what's able to be customized in your package. Then, your base is the following (focusing only on specialty channels, so there will be more included):
1 set of US Networks
ABC Spark HD
CBC News Network HD
Cottage Life HD
CTV News HD
Game TV HD
ICI RDI HD
National Geographic HD
RDS 2 HD
The Rural Channel
Weather Network HD
Vision TV HD

I am trying to convince the wife that we dont need to watch the reality shows that populate the tv scene these days.
I am having a hard time convincing her because if it was for me I would cut Shaw.
Paying $150.00/month to watch tv is not a great idea in my books.
Sooner or later she will crack and then I will get rid of Shaw. Sorry you cant continue to increase prices like this when online streaming is so much cheaper with better content.

|tvmaster||Yeah, itís a great package, and was at a good price. But the price has climbed nearly $50! And channels have been taken away, so itís time to shed some expense...|

As long as you keep the classic or advanced lineup you will keep it if it's in your package, be it platinum or a newer package. You would only lose it (instantly) with the National lineup.
Wow, Platinum that goes way back.

|tvmaster||So if I like the west coast, SD Comedy feed, Iíll continue to get that, or lose it instantly? If the latter, I guess Iíll wait until the mandatory National lineup?|

|LONSat||If you choose a new package with with one of the legacy channel maps (Classic or Advanced) you will receive the channel in Std Def only or if both versions available, you will receive the Std Def and HD version until such time as the Std Def drops. With the new National lineup you get any subscribed channel that is HD only and Std Def channels of those that have not converted with a couple exceptions. You do not get the West Std Def feeds of a couple of channels like W, YTV, History which come to mind. They will presumably get added back in once the HD version launches over the next couple months. Not sure if that was intentional or an oversight but should resolve as the West HD versions launch.|

|tvmaster||Another question: if I discontinue my old, Platinum package in favour of a new package, would I still receive all the currently active STANDARD DEF channels until Shaw deactivates them? Classic East map.|

|tvmaster||ah, ok, so the $8.00 Music pack includes them as well. That makes sense, but the website is so OUT OF DATE it doesnít indicate that. Sorry for all the questions, but between the inaccuracies of the Shaw site, and the insane telephone hold-times, you are our best source|

|k801809||They would be auto included in Large, and available in the Music Theme Pack. Or, as mentioned in the other thread, can be taken as one of your customized options for Extra Small, Small and Medium.|

|tvmaster||Can you tell me when they would be included with other plans, aka are they auto-included with Medium or Large, or included with the $8.00 Music Theme Pack (which includes some Video channels)?|
|2019-07-15 09:47 AM|
|k801809||They would be part of the Pick Pack selection component (15 channels for Small) - all 4 Stingray video channels count as one pick.|
|2019-07-15 01:15 AM|
|tvmaster||Are the Stingray Video channels included with your ĎSmallí package, or a separate fee?|
