Who is getting the Super Channel preview? Either Shaw Direct isn't participating or they are slow to activate it, with everything going on. Can't find a list of the providers participating in it.

Super Channel didn't publish a list of providers. Here are a few that put it on their web site: Bell (April 6) Rogers, Telus, Cogeco, Tbaytel, Quadro Communications. I don't know anyone with Shaw Direct, but I've heard that Shaw Cable has been slow to activate previews by a few days to a week sometimes.

I don't know if other providers are getting BBC world news, but Telus seems to have it on free preview on channel 821 (it wasn't announced, but suddenly appeared a few days ago).
