It might actually be CTV that is killing the west feed and not Shaw Direct. Remember Comedy is becoming CTV Comedy Channel in the fall. I don't see why they would have a west feed of this CTV...

I think the logos would like better if the CTV logo portion was a single colour that matched the colour palette of the respective station (i.e. for CTV Comedy Channel, the 'CTV' bug would be orange).

I'm going to assume Family West HD will be on 368?

I believe the SD feed of APTN was the west feed. I'm going to assume based on Shaw Broadcast, only APTN HD (East Feed) will remain.

Just curious, are all the PPV, Radio Stations and Stingray Audio stations still on the same channel number for the National line-up? I recall the PDF didn't list these.

Keep in mind that while the existing HD signals will remain on F1R and F2, G1 will be the only source for several channels once the SD channels on F1R and F2 are shuttered.

TSN probably will only show 1 game at 1:00pm and 4:00pm depending on the CFL schedule. I believe after Labour Day, TSN has Sunday CFL games. Those will likely air on TSN1, 3, 4 & 5.
