First let me congratulate you on the release of the PVR, the service is now fully baked. I do have one question though, when we will see AMC and TCM on TELUS TV? They are not exclusives, Rogers, Shaw and I think Starchoice have them, and they would fantastic adds. I'll be signing right after XMAS is out of the way.

I've always wondered why we don't have TCM as it gets a lot of requests from the older folks. I'll ask about it.


In the meantime, as per the suggestions of the TCM website:

Is TCM available in Canada?

TCM is available in Canada.



Here is a list of Canadian companies currently carrying TCM:

Shaw Communications, Inc.
Star Choice, A Shaw Communications Company Rogers Cable Communications, Inc.
Access Communications Co-Operative, Ltd.
Sasktel
Westman Communications Group
Bell Aliant Regional Communications, L.P.
Novus Entertainment, Inc.
Mascon Communications Corporation
Total Cable Service, Inc.
Raftview Communications, Ltd.
Bonnechere Cable Company, Ltd.
Lake Huron Resort Cable
First Run Multimedia Corporation
Creenet, Inc.
Direct 2 Home TV

If your cable or satellite provider doesn't offer TCM, please supply us with your cable company's name and zip code, so we can forward the information to our representatives.

Here are some additional ways to approach your provider to get TCM:

- Write "I want Turner Classic Movies!" on your cable bill before you send it back every month.

- Call or write your cable company and tell them, "I want Turner Classic Movies on my cable bill!"

- Start a petition. Get as many signatures as possible from people who want to receive Turner Classic Movies. Deliver the petition to your cable company.

- Start a call-in campaign with your neighbors to your cable company`s Director of Marketing.

- Write an editorial and submit it to your local newspapers.

See, I wasn't crazy! :)

There is also a rental offer for $15/month for customers who are in good standing and have been for 12 months.

Well I must admit I'm shocked...399$ is very reasonable. Now lets figure out the best deal for disgruntled 530 users!

Just click on the link Brewster. Works fine in IE, Chrome, Firefox. Don't copy and paste it.

Guess Shaw Direct does read this forum and removed the linked page. Probably wasn't supposed to be made public right now. Might be an August Promo.

Did you notice that Shaw direct let slip another info on the cached page. They claim to have 60 HD channels on their regular page but on the cached page it 65!! I know about Global HD coming in August and maybe the 60 figure does not include CNN HD but what of the remaining 3?

Old Starchoice Customer....

I will put it out there.....not as a troll but for customers with a DSR530 is $399 a fair price??...I do not think so @ all. It should be a free replacement across the board.
The crap that you owners have put up with over the years is inexcusable, they owe you guys that.
Looks like the Moto DCX3400 in a satellite version, hope it works!!!!
