Is animal planet still on free preview? I thot it ended in December. I do not see a preview listed on the optik site for this channel. Just curious because i still get it.

Also wondering about discovery world. It moved to a $6 premium channel in August. I still get it. never been charged for it. I even talked to customer support last sept to ask about this. told her i still get it, said it should be removed soon. said i want to make sure i am not retroactively charged for this. said i should not because i never ordered it.
Just wondering if there is a grandfather clause for folks that had this channel in a theme pak? anyone else have this channel and not paying the 6bux?

I added the "Adventure" pack in September, which includes "Discovery World" even though it's not listed as part of the pack. I won't miss it if it goes dark, nor will I pay extra for it.

I wish telus would grow up and stop releasing new non HD channels.

It is 2013, we don't want to see any content that isn't 16:9 720p minimum.

In fact why do they even offer SD feeds AT ALL.

Why does it matter? Telus has no bandwidth limits so providing SD channels doesn't limit their ability to provide HD channels.

For anyone who records a lot of shows as I do, recording some in SD is the only thing that keeps my PVR from automatically deleting the oldest recordings to free up space.

For anyone still using 4x3 CRT TV's (a LOT of people still do), watching and recording the SD channels is just easier as it fits the screen best by default.
