I am considering a switch to Shaw Direct. According to the Leafs TV website, LeafsTV HD is available on Shaw Direct (on channel 266) but I can't find it in either channel listing lineups (classic vs advanced). Is it available?

and

What do they use the HD Sports channel for?

Thanks!

Leafs TV HD itself isn't available. However, HD Sports is used to show Leafs TV live games in HD. It is also used for TFC games on Gol TV and a few other odd things like that.

NB Josh is correct. Shaw Direct does not have LeafsTV HD. When there is a Leafs game on LeafsTV, that game will be shown on channel 266 in HD.

Leafs TV HD

Thanks for the information. It makes sense to do it the way SD does it, as the only HD content Leafs TV offers are those 20 odd games per year. They do produce more in house HD on Raptors TV HD which I hope SD will add.

I did decide to make the switch from Bell to the Ontario Value Pack. There are about 15 HD channels I will lose but only Raptors HD, and three Movie Channel HD channels that I watch. This is more than offset by Big Ten Network which will provide me access to lots of Michigan games (not to mention Detroit networks which offer better access to Michigan games than Boston). I liked Bell but the chance to save $24 per month was too much to pass up. Bell did offer me a 20% discount for one year to stay but not enough.

Thanks again for the clarification.
