It's discouraging to see that there is no chatter about all the new high def channels Shaw will offering this year. Adding new channels is good but what would be better and a good first step would be to upgrade all of the existing channels to high definition.

Most of the channels do have HD feeds. It's just SD doesn't have the capacity to carry them all. I have Rogers Cable tv now and there is crap load of HD channels that SD doesn't carry.

10 New HD channels,
Since I don't get G1 down south here I bought a $10 outdoor antenna and set it up. To my surprise I get 15 digital channels and 3 analog channels, after editing I really have 12 new channels. 10 of them are in HD and 2 old movie channels for free. This is a nice complement of Las Vegas HD locals added to the Shaw package I get.

Just wondering, with the demise of Sun News Network, and coming in April 1 the removal of Speed (Speed SD, and Speed HD). Can Shaw D use this bandwidth and convert to mpeg4 transmission so they can add more channels than the current three (maybe 4, or 5?). Also was Sun, and currently the Speed channels all on the same older satellite?

An all wrestling channel, hmm? Not to take anything away from WWE fans but I think they could make a better choice of something to add

The Movie Network GO (TMN GO) is now available to TMN subscribers in Eastern Canada on Shaw Direct and Shaw Cable.

http://www.digitalhome.ca/forum/showthread.php?p=2402250
how do you log in? I only saw a link for Shaw Go (not Shaw Direct).
what would this be: "Please Use Your watchTVeverywhere.ca Account"
I don't even know what that is - can you explain?
Thanks

EDIT: figured it out...too many options lol

I also contacted Shaw Direct and the advisor stated that he had no information on the channel to give out. He still thought it was closing until I pointed him to the press release, upon which time he promptly disconnected the chat window. First bad service I've ever had from SD.

Discovery channel

Did I miss something? My Discovery channel looks like it's gone, and replaced with Discovery about cars. Talk about minimalizing your audience. Is that something that's really wanted, since there are already other channels dedicated to the topic?
