We are supposed to be getting it, but I am not. I wonder if anyone is actually getting this channel on Shaw Direct?

Discovery Science is on free preview. It didn't show up in my guide but a program that was in my list of "record new" showed up for the first time in a long time. I discovered the new channel when I looked at the program INFO. I had to edit my channel list to make Discovery Science show in the guide. (I know Dr. Dave reported this a while back but who can remember :)

If you go into settings and uncheck the channels under Edit channel list, they will not show up when they go on preview. You will need to leave them checked with the setting for show unsubscribed as "Hide". I hide the french, adult, some locals and others but leave some of the specialties checked that I might like to watch under the Edit channel list, so if they go on free preview they show up.

Last month there was a 'Discovery Velocity' preview. I was humming and hawing on adding it after the preview, but now, It's currently active in my OLD Platinum Choice line-up (although it never has been before). But if you look for that channel to subscribe to, a-la-carte (as is the case with the American Superchannels) it's nowhere to be found at the Shaw Direct 'Build a package' site.

Any idea what's going on with these two channel arrangements (Velocity & American Superchannels)? Do they mysteriously get thrown in when you subscribe to something else? I have no idea how Velocity suddenly became hot in my lineup. lol

Discovery Velocity is available under "Add more channels" for $5, but not as one of the channel selections on the current standard packages. I don't know about the old packages. Shaw Cable used to occasionally "forget" to take a channel off free preview.

It is? Ok, I'll look again. Didn't see it the first time, but the order you have to pick, build and cross-reference is so convoluted it's likely I missed it.

I'm getting the Discovery Sci free preview. I had to select it in the modify channel list. There, the channel icon had the yellow rectangle indicating free preview but it was also greyed out meaning not available. Whatever - it works.

Telelatino, free until Dec 31? Score! I was afraid of having to sacrifice it when I downsize, and as a standalone $5 month channel, was going to miss it. Will have to stockpile-DVR those 3am Stefano Cooking shows.
