New Channels always generate a lot of discussion so this thread is for discussing new channels in 2011.

You're welcome to speculate and discuss new channels coming to Telus in 2011 but PLEASE unless it's been confirmed by an official press release, be clear about what is speculation and what is fact.

A post saying "a CSR said it was coming" is NOT official, however, it does put it in the "highly" likely category.

If its posted on the CRTC site that its been approved by the CRTC but Telus has not said anything, I would consider that in the "not very likely at this time" category.

More HD!

I want to get more HD channels, and I want em now! Fox News and Encore Avenue for starters. I think telus should able to offer more HD than shaw since shaw has to broadcast all the hd at once, dont they?

OK I see we have some new HD channels. I can view them all except HGTV HD. I was wondering if I am the only one who can't see HGTV HD.It shows up in the guide but says I have to call Telus to order when the channel is selected. I can watch the SD HGTV channel. Right now I am on a free preview of all channels. Anyone else experience this?

Same, this happened before when they added some channels to me. I had to call and get them to turn them on even though I was suppose to get them. Last time however the new channels (Oasis et al) were in a new HD pack and I had to pay for it (I declined), is HGTV HD part of the regular packs or a newer add-on package?

14 new French channels in HD. HGTV in HD isn't working for me either but I don't have anything except basic cable.

Just did a count and Telus only have some 14 free slots between 600 (1st HD channel) and 697 (first radio channel) so some realignment is going to have to happen if more than 14 HD channels are added soon.

nice to see they added 14 more French channels..more channels to uncheck from my guide :)

i am same boat as others with HGTV. I have the lifestyle package with the SD HGTV. anyone know if the HD HGtv is extra? i would have thought it was included. Just wondering if its just a case of having to call in? Dont want to have to go thru that whole phone CSR thing just to find out i cant get it.

HGTV 680

Why is there different programming on the SD version (142) of HGTV? I thought it would broadcast the same programming. This is first time i am seeing different programming between the SD and HD channels.

Pretty sure History Television has different programming as well between SD and HD. Probably to take advantage of different content available in HD. Cheers!
