Fla Reception

Last year I took my 60 CM dish to St Petes Beach and was able to get both Sats. The signal strength on my 630 was in the 50's for the HD channels but I was able to get good reception except when we had a heavy rain which was not that often.

Does any one know if Digital Lite (the cheapest package $29.85/mo) is still available?? There is no link to the the channel line-up on the website, however if you are a customer with a self-serve account and go in through the programming link there is a link for the channel listing. Also, if you google "digtial lite shaw direct", the channels come up? Does this mean it is only available to current customers who want to downgrade? Or has it been removed??

Digital Favourites 29.99$ for 3 months...

Shawdirect now has a promotion that gets you digital favourites at 29.99$ for 3 months and the movie network have a 50% off promotion too.

So for the ones who dont have the indulgence packages this could be a option for three months. Not good for me but might be good for others.

They also have a promotion to get a free PVR on a 3 year contract? Since when did Shawdirect have contracts?

Anyways just to let you guys know, have a look at the main shawdirect webpage for the current promotions mentionned above...

Talk to retentions if you been a client for a least a year and have a always made your payments on time they should be able to put it on for you... My dad got it no problem...

TMN encore / Encore avenue HD

Can someone explain pricing for these please..

I have Shaw Direct classic east - I realize the TMN Encore SD 2-Pak has one price, but does the Encore Avenue HD (channel 273) come included as well, or is it a separate charge? If it's separate, there's no price listed on the Shaw Premiums lineup page beside the channels logo ...Any idea?

or...if I am in the East, is Encore Avenue HD unavailable to me?

Also, is Encore Avenue HD mpeg4, i.e. will it only come in on 6XX series receivers?

Are the channels related, or do they just share the 'Encore' name...
thanks

This may be the wrong thread for this question, but here goes: Does anyone out there know what channels will be added once the Anik G1 satellite launches?? How will it affect DI Lite subscribers??

There will be a large number of new Canadian network stations added. As for DI, I suspect that most (aka non-mandatory) new channels will cost extra. I also suspect that SD will revamp it's packages and increase prices. That means that older plans will no longer be available, except to existing subscribers.
