SD is offering a free PPV for the satellite lose.
Shaw Direct is offering its customers a free PPV valued up to $8.99 as a "peace-offering" for the satellite failure on Oct.2/3.
Claim yours here.

Of Course, MAIL MESSAGE service is only on F2. It had to be on F2
That explains why no Messages....

|Swatqc||RuralRouter : The fact is, that mail, the way it to the receiver is with channel 350 and guess what? He's on F2....|

I did one reboot, checked a 2nd receiver (same problem) then I came to this board. And whatddaya know - all the info I need was here. I knew it wasn't my LNB or receiver and that somebody was looking into it.

Internet, phone services gradually returning after Telesat satellite issue in Northern Canada - North - CBC News
Interesting that a web-search brings up mostly articles from the 2011 incident, unless you insert 2016 into the search criteria. Also interesting that CBC has the best/most info on the topic.
"Communication companies" seem to be very poor at communicating when something like this happens...

I checked a few US Net and CNN HD channels. They are back!
Now I will have to change my timers back from SD to HD.

|GaryE||It appears Telesat has been able to get the satellite turned back around. Signals are coming back up.|

Not sure about every channel being HD, and not sure how they are doing it, but Shaw has a highdef signal on (Classic channel 103) Sportsnet East HD..which is on F2, usually; and is obviously not coming from there now.
I had sports on most of the night up until well over 8:30 pm Atlantic and didn't notice the problem until I changed channels.. As someone else pointed out, most of the HD Canadian nets are on the third satellite, so my guess is that TO and Vancouver signals are being substituted with signals from other cities for those of us that are able to receive them. (eq. 6XX receivers). I can definately tell the difference between HD and SD.
