Shaw Direct Channel Discussion Thread
31 Attachment(s)
This thread will be for rumours, channel deletions and complaining about any channel not offered by Shaw Direct.
Actual confirmed new channel announcements and channel deletions will now have their own thread.

It's discouraging to see that there is no chatter about all the new high def channels Shaw will offering this year. Adding new channels is good but what would be better and a good first step would be to upgrade all of the existing channels to high definition.

But those channels have to have a HD feed first. Most SD channels don't.

Most of the channels do have HD feeds. It's just SD doesn't have the capacity to carry them all. I have Rogers Cable tv now and there is crap load of HD channels that SD doesn't carry.

DSgamby 2015-01-07 09:55 PM

Yes but there are still a lot that don't have HD feeds.

I'd like to see more HD, but not on G1. Guess that's not going to happen...

I think we've had our new HD channels for the year :P - See you all next Christmas!

The Movie Network GO (TMN GO) is now available to TMN subscribers in Eastern Canada on Shaw Direct and Shaw Cable.

10 New HD channels,
Since I don't get G1 down south here I bought a $10 outdoor antenna and set it up. To my surprise I get 15 digital channels and 3 analog channels, after editing I really have 12 new channels. 10 of them are in HD and 2 old movie channels for free. This is a nice complement of Las Vegas HD locals added to the Shaw package I get.

Just wondering, with the demise of Sun News Network, and coming in April 1 the removal of Speed (Speed SD, and Speed HD). Can Shaw D use this bandwidth and convert to mpeg4 transmission so they can add more channels than the current three (maybe 4, or 5?). Also was Sun, and currently the Speed channels all on the same older satellite?

The conversion of the existing MPEG-2 HD channels is probably more of a Shaw Broadcast decision. All the cable system headends would need to upgrade their equipment. WWE Network is coming to Shaw Direct and will likely have an SD and HD signal.

An all wrestling channel, hmm? Not to take anything away from WWE fans but I think they could make a better choice of something to add

how do you log in? I only saw a link for Shaw Go (not Shaw Direct).
what would this be: "Please Use Your Account"
I don't even know what that is - can you explain?

EDIT: figured it out...too many options lol
