Discussion Starter #1
In order to de-clutter the Channel Discussion threads from previous years, only post here if a new channel announcement or old channel deletion has been:

1. Posted on the Shaw's website, Facebook page or Twitter feed or on their forums.
2. Been announced through a Press release.
3. Shows up on the dial.
4. Or if a statement is issued on your cable bill.

All commenting and discussions need to be made in the Shaw Direct Channel Discussion Thread:

http://www.digitalhome.ca/forum/11-shaw-direct-formerly-star-choice/227266-shaw-direct-channel-discussion-thread.html

Not following the rules will result in your post being deleted... not moved.

BeIN Sports HD now on 618 (Advanced). Currently in Free Preview.

Edit: Some occasional glitching occurring. Guide not completely correct, although this could be at the fault of the broadcaster rather than Shaw Direct, as they are currently covering a live event. The channel's website is correct.

Action HD now on 636 (Advanced). Interestingly, at the time of writing (22:55 AT), the SD / HD link has not been set-up and so the 'Watch in HD' banner doesn't show on either SD channel.

Oct. 28th... 4 new channels added...

TV5 HD on channel 414-advanced, ??-classic
ici artv HD on channel 421-advanced, ??-classic

Cartoon Network HD on channel 577-advanced, 077-classic

and a 4th channel which I cannot find. According to my status screen my channel count went from 759 yesterday to 763 today so maybe they added another barker channel or PPV channel.

After cleaning the snow off the dish this morning [only had to do this twice in 18 yrs.] I discovered 2 new channels. We finally got CTV NN HD on 094 and E! HD on 088.
