I have typed up all the bundles for Shaw cable. If I have missed anything or somethings wrong let me know. I tried to make it as accurate as possible, well here its goes; (Its long)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have listed some general information on Shaw Services and Prices, I hope this information will help you and be a one stop place to get the infomation you need - Any Changes can be submitted to be via Private Message;

Shaw Packages and Pricing

High Speed Internet you can buy the modem for $59.95 and get free installation and your first month of internet for free, or rent the modem from Shaw and add an additional $5 per month to the High Speed package. Modem rental with Lite Speed Internet is free. So if you have Lite Speed you do not need to buy the modem.

All Shaw Digital Packages require that you buy the Digital Terminal. You can rent the DCT for an additional $10.95 per month. In most areas of Canada you can buy a DCT 2500 for 198.88 and receive 12 free PPV ($59.88 value) and $100 in programming credits (10 months of $10 off the Total Entertainment Bundle). See Shaw Digital TV for more Information.

At the current time if you have a HD Box, you get all HDTV channels for free (Movie Central HD requires you to have a subscription to the Movie Central Channels now); those channels can be found on channels 301-310. HD Channels depend on your area. Shaw Currently offers the following channels in HD; Fox, CBS, Movie Central, Sportsnet, PBS, ABC, NBC, TSN, CBC, and CTV - channel availablity depends on your area. If you have subscribed to the analog version of that channel, you will receive the HD version at no charge at this time. See Shaw HDTV For more information.

Shaw Digital Phone is now available in some major areas such as Calgary, Edmonton, Vancounver, Victoria and Winnipeg. Shaw Digital Phone works like a normal phone service and they offer 6 calling features (Caller ID, Voicemail, Call Waiting, Call Forward, 3-way Calling, Call Return), and unlimited local and Long Distance in North America including Alaska & Hawaii. They Now offer Shaw International Direct which allows you to direct dial overseas from as low as 3 cents a min. 411, 611 and 911 are all free with Shaw Digital Phone. In most areas Shaw Phone is $65 as a stand alone, or $55 with any other Shaw Service. In Winnipeg Shaw Phone is $55 as a stand alone, $50 with 1 Shaw service (Cable or Internet), $45 with 2 Shaw Services (Cable and Digital, or Cable and Internet), and $40 with 3 Shaw Services (Cable, Digital, and Internet).

Don't know if this is still available, but in BC there is a Total Fairchild Bundle which bundles Fairchild/Talentvision and everything in the Premier entertainment bundle minus the 4 US superstations (which are $1) for $50.95

corp prices?

shawguy,

dont know if you can answer this one: I am a shaw customer (high speed internet only) in vancouver. my employer pays for this internet (they started a corporate account back when Rogers serviced vancouver) every month. I am now moving to a new house, where i will be buying a HD capable cable box from shaw, and want to get their premier entertainment bundle for my new plasms, instead of expressvu. I am not sure how shaw would seperate charges .. internet to my employers account, tv to me, at the same property ... ?

Not sure about anywhere else but here in Victoria now I was told that you can order FOX NEWS as a pick and pay ch. But you have to order something like three or four other ch's at the same time.. If this has already been posted then nevermind;)

SOHO is technically a Business Internet option, I realize some home users who have multiple computers or higher bandwidth needs have switched to this package, but I focused on the Residental packages in that post, that is what why it was not included. When I do some more research into the business packages I may add them at that time, sorry about that.

SOHO is $64.95 and includes Basic Cable free of charge. It has the same speed and e-mail account limits as Shaw High Speed Internet with a few extras

For More Information on Business packages please see: Shaw Business Internet

Winnipeg prices

I checked with shaw about the prices listed for Winnipeg above, and this is what they replied:

"Yes, the prices and packages below are correct, except Basic & Tier 1 3 is $46.95/mth. If you add a digital box to any of the below packages, the price will stay the same as well. If you have Full Cable Service with a digital terminal, (Basic & Tier 123) the price increases fro $46.95/mth to 48.95/mth."

So Winnipeg prices are as follows:
A/D Basic: $24.00
A/D Basic + 1: $37.95
A/D Basic + 2: $34.00
A/D Basic + 3: $38.25
A/D Basic + 12: $41.25
A/D Basic + 13: $46.95
A/D Basic + 23: $45.45
Analog Full: $46.95
Digital Full: $48.95 ("Premiere Entertainment Bundle")

Also Shaw Lite + cable is advertised at $24.95, I'm not sure when you would actually be charged that rate. Depending on your cable TV package, the incremental price for adding Lite to your package ranges from $18.95-$22.00:

cable w/lite difference
Basic $24.00 $42.95 $18.95
Full $46.95 $68.95 $22.00
Premier $48.95 $68.95 $20.00
Total $60.95 $80.95 $20.00

Can you please clarify under what circumstances you would actually be charged $24.95/month for Shaw Lite?

Digital Service
Digital Features Fee 5.97
Razer 2.49
BBC Canada 2.49

It looks as though you have 3 DCTs and the movies bundle. Do you own your modem as well? If you call into customer service they can explain it thoroughly for you
