Dr.Dave Shaw posted on that they added Stingray Retro, Stingray Loud and Vintage TV. The 2 Stingray channels are rebrands of the corresponding Much channels and are now included in Music and Pop Culture Theme Pack which is in the Large Entertainment 3 Theme Pack.

57 As an FYI, this is not officially a new channel, but a rebrand of Bio:

mismag It's been confirmed that Movie Central and Encore Avenue are being replaced by TMN sometime early next year
2015-11-18 03:00 PM
Dr.Dave According to Disney's web sites, these channels will launch Dec. 1:

Disney Junior 186 (SD)
Disney XD 188 (SD) | 196 (HD)
2015-09-23 04:01 PM
bigoranget 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.
2015-09-23 03:20 PM
Distant Signal LCN (SD) is available on channel 917 in North Vancouver (Shaw). Shaw doesn't carry any French HD, as far as I know.
2015-09-23 02:59 PM
Dr.Dave 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.
2015-09-23 02:18 PM
mismag 911 is LCN HD?
2015-09-02 01:12 AM
Dr.Dave 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.

Shootmaster_44 Not sure if this is new for everyone, but I just noticed MuchMusic was added in HD on channel 276 here in Lloydminster.

mismag 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.

Dr.Dave Channel 250 Action HD will be added May 1.
