Oh that explains how the are doing it. For the most part the CRTC won't allow only the HD channels to be offered, can only get HD's if you also have the SD's. I guess some of the new HD only channels are the exception. So Telus is picking out most of the channels that have both an SD AND an HD version and putting them into this package.OK got the best of hd package yesterday and here is what I got.
Essentials in both SD and HD.
In both SD and HD I also get:
I am pretty sure that Hollywood Suite will NOT be included but I would be very surprised if you can't subscribe to it or the HIFI package or any of the other movie packages along with the "Best of HD" package.Hollywood Suite (I think this is still on free preview, so not sure if I'll get it after preview is over)
I am surprised that they have almost all of the HD channels included in this package, not just a good assortment of them. No Discovery World HD, Bold HD, FX canada HD or Wild TV HD from wha tI can see. I don't have the package, just going by what has been reported here and wah tis on-line. So Discover HD and Space HD may or may not become part of this package. And of course if they do add them and others, the price will likely creep up at least a bit.Interesting,
I wonder why Discovery World is not included as the other HD channels in that "pack" are.
