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 Telus 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 bill.

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

www.digitalhome.ca/forum/showthread.php?t=227489

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

Telus has added an app for the National Film Board (NFB). Channel 452 and 738 goes to it. It uses Internet data though, so like the Netflix app, it will only work if you have Internet with Telus.

I see no apparent reason for these changes, so I'm wondering what they're making space for.
