Just got off the phone with a CSR (billing issue) and I was informed that Shaw will be adding 20 HD channels within the next 90 days. She couldn't tell me which ones, but she did confirm that it would be 20 channels.

20 new channels...woot! http://canadatv.9.forumer.com/html/emoticons/biggrin.gif

She also (sort of) confirmed NHL CI this coming season. She would not say for sure, but she did not deny all the information and confirmation I have heard from various sources.

20 more HD Channels?

Well its pretty simple to firgure which are coming.

I'm not sure which ones Shaw Cable catties, but what ever they are just lok at what the others are carring and if there not on Shaw Cable more then likely those will be added.

Can you post what Shaw is carring presently.

Ok Lets see:
1)WGN HD-1
2)TSN HD-1
3)Rogers SN HD-1
4)Showcase HD-1
5)NG HD-1
6)HD Net-1
7)Discovery HD-1
8)A&E-1HD-1
9)PBS-E?&W? -1HD
10)ABC E&W-2HD
11)CBS E&W-2HD
12)NBC E&W-2HD
13)FOX E&W-2HD
14)CTV E&W-2HD
15)CBC E? W?-1HD
Total HD channels=20

If my count is correct then Shaw wil have 40 HD(at least) by OCT.

Ok my guess is:

Global E&W-2HD
CBC-1HD(E? W?)-1HD
PBS (E?&W?)-1HD
City TV E-1HD
Total=5HD Channels(more then likely these(

As for the other 15 HD Channels, I'm not sure but I think a few might be NFL HD,and maybe some french ones(not sure what the Francophone pop is out west).

I don't see the ones that are only on BEV(non sports).

In any count good for you guys on the HD front, on the SD front, :eek: :rolleyes: PITTYFUL SELCTION!! I'D DIE IF I COULD ONLY HAVE SHAW CABLE!!

I can guarantee you would not die Tom. I personally don't care about SD content as I hardly watch any of it. If I could sub to just HD, I would.
