Even with Shaw direct I don't think they have channels in the 3000's numbering. Also, if there's no broadcasting, label or programming yet what is it showing that makes you think it's going to be a new channel? Is it showing on the on screen guide?
I think there was an update with the last guide update that allowed for channel numbers with 4 digits. There was some testing of channel numbers in the guide in the 1000's not long ago (black screen no audio).
As far as I am aware there are no plans to utilize 4 digit channel numbers at this point in time.
