    Get Ready For 100's of New HD Channels! Shaw Direct's New Satellite Has Launched!



    Shaw Direct's new satellite which gives them more satellite capacity than anyone else in Canada has successfully launched! Shaw Direct now has OVER 210 HD CHANNELS, which is more than any other provider in Canada

    Not only does Shaw Direct have more local HD stations than any other provider, but they have far more local HD stations producing local news in HD.

    I personally made the switch from Bell to Shaw Direct on May 17th and I certainly don't regret the decision as I now have access to far more local news in HD on Shaw Direct than I ever did with Bell!

    Yes, but what they might gain in local HD they may lose in Specialty channels. Also what makes you think that Shaw Direct will carry more locals than Bell? Bell already has 20-25+ locals? Between the additional locals, additional PPV channels, the HD channels that Shaw Cable has and probably more french HD, they probably wont have much more than what Bell has. Also until I see a list of what they are actually adding, I'm going to assume that both Shaw Direct and Shaw Cable will continue to be way behind the other providers in terms of providing specialty channels in HD.

    Your just happy because there is a good chance that one of those "100 New HD Channels" would happen to be Global News BC1, isn't it?

    And to think there is actually some people on here that think TVViewer isn't associated with Shaw or is not promoting Shaw on here! wow!

    Unfortunately for TVViewer and his motherlord Shaw, Bell has recently added a few more local HD channels; from Digital Home:

    Omni 1 HD - 1055
    Omni 2 HD - 1056
    City Calgary HD - 1133
    Omni Calgary HD - 1135
    City Vancouver HD - 1153
    Omni Vancouver HD - 1155
    SRCM HD - 1801
    SRCO HD - 1816
    SRCE HD - 1830
    SRCV HD - 1832

    Presumably, the SRC ones above are Radio-Canada locals.

    There's also GSN HD as well, channel 1732

    So, I wouldn't switch just yet! and btw, would you honestly want to support a company that is associated by all accounted evidence on here with TVViewer? Yikes!

    Yes, but what they might gain in local HD they may lose in Specialty channels.
    Bell doesn't even carry some popular channels in SD that will be available in HD on Shaw Direct (including FX Canada, Nat Geo Wild, and Global News BC1). Shaw Direct may not have all the low rated HD channels as Bell/Telus satellite have but those high rated specialty channels you listed along with all the HD locals should make Shaw Direct’s HD lineup pretty appealing to most people given Bell/Telus reluctance to carry some popular channels (like top 20 digital channel Nat Geo Wild) and HD locals actually producing local news in HD. Shaw Direct’s new capacity also opens the door for Shaw Media to launch HD simulcasts of Canada’s most watched digital channels, channels that Bell and Telus are unlikely to carry at launch (as they barely carry any new non-Bell channels at launch), in fact, on May 29th Slice will be launching in HD exclusively on both Shaw cable and Shaw Direct.


    Also what makes you think that Shaw Direct will carry more locals than Bell?
    What makes you think they wont? Viewers want their local stations in HD, they own 12 local stations which will dramatically benefit from HD carriage, they have the capacity to add them, adding them gives them a MAJOR advantage over Bell and takes away an advantage from the cable company, and they don't have to pay carriage fees to carry them in local markets.


    Bell already has 20-25+ locals?

    Very few of the HD locals Bell carries actually broadcast local news in HD. They carry several CTV (and some CBC) HD stations airing for the most part programming that is available at the same time on other HD stations with SD local news and channels like CHCH which mostly airs low rated programming very few watch and SD local news. Bell’s carriage of local HD channels appears to be more about getting viewers to watch CTV’s HD network programming on their local station as opposed to actually providing viewers with what they want (local content in HD). Even one of the few CTV stations with HD local news (CTV Edmonton) isn’t available on Bell satellite.

    You are wrong... Telus is currently carrying the complete suite of Corus HD channels. I believe the only provider in Canada carrying all of them. They just added last week; Treehouse, Cosmo, Nickelodeon, CMT and Sundnace.

    Bell doesn't even carry some popular channels in SD that will be available in HD on Shaw Direct (including FX Canada, Nat Geo Wild, and Global News BC1). Shaw Direct may not have all the low rated HD channels as Bell/Telus satellite have but those high rated specialty channels you listed along with all the HD locals should make Shaw Direct’s HD lineup pretty appealing to most people given Bell/Telus reluctance to carry some popular channels (like top 20 digital channel Nat Geo Wild) and HD locals actually producing local news in HD.
    Where do I start with this one...

    1.) Telus DOES carry FX Canada HD and Nat Geo WILD HD. Along with a bunch of new Corus channels as well.
    2.) Even after all the additions Shaw Cable/Shaw Direct is still missing these channels; Much HD, HLN HD, Peachtree HD, TCM HD, Sony Movie Channel, MGM Channel, AXN Movies, Warner Films, Discovery Science HD, Investigation Discovery HD, Travel + Escape HD, Cartoon Network HD, Teletoon HD, WPIX HD, KTLA HD, WSBK HD, NFL Network HD, CBS Sports Network HD, Game Show network HD, Spike HD, CBC News Network HD, CTV News Channel HD, CP24 HD, Bold HD, Documentary HD, Sun News Network HD, BBC World News HD, MSNBC HD. Don't tell me that all these channels are low rated channels. Many of these channels have demand and Bell and Telus carry a good chunk of these while Shaw/Shaw Direct still don't.
    3.) Shaw has had a long history (10+ years) of dragging their feet on HD channel additions. People aren't stupid; there is a reason Shaw and Shaw Direct have been bleeding customers over the past few years. They are tired of the mediocre HD channel line-up. Why doesn't Shaw Cable carry all the Corus stations in HD? They have common ownership. The reason is because they don't want customers moving between Shaw Cable and Shaw Direct. Why didn't Shaw launch an HD version of Lifetime and H2 last year when these brands launched. They could have had these channels on Shaw Cable and I'm sure most other providers would have carried them as well. Pretty much every provider carries all of Shaw's HD channels with the exception of Global News BC1 and Nat Geo Wild.

    Very few of the HD locals Bell carries actually broadcast local news in HD. They carry several CTV (and some CBC) HD stations airing for the most part programming that is available at the same time on other HD stations with SD local news and channels like CHCH which mostly airs low rated programming very few watch and SD local news.

Even one of the few CTV stations with HD local news (CTV Edmonton) isn’t available on Bell satellite.
    What a load of crap. Bell offers more CTV channels because CTV is owned by Bell just as Shaw Direct will likely have more Global channels because Shaw owns Global. Even if Global didn't have HD newscasts on many of their channels; Shaw Direct would still favour Global over CTV. Look at how they implement simsubs since Shaw took over Global; Shaw Direct does blanket nation wide simsubs of Global HD over Eastern US feeds yet they don't do that with CTV's Toronto feed.

    Also let's not forget the fact that up until about 2 years ago, Shaw Direct only carried CBLT and CFTO Toronto in HD. Bell at least has carried some locals from other areas. They have carried CBC and CTV Vancouver since 2005. They carried Global BC since 2008 and I believe CTV and Global Calgary have been carried since 2009.

    These are the locals they carry right now.

    CBHT-DT (CBC - Halifax)
    CJCH-DT (CTV - Halifax)
    CBMT-DT (CBC - Montreal)
    CKAL-DT (City - Calgary)
    CJCO-DT (Omni - Calgary)
    CBOT-DT (CBC - Ottawa)
    CBLT-DT (CBC - Toronto)
    CFTO-DT (CTV - Toronto)
    CIII-DT (Global - Toronto)
    CITY-DT (City - Toronto)
    CKVR-DT (CTV Two - Barrie)
    CFMT-DT (Omni1 - Toronto)
    CJMT-DT (Omni2 - Toronto)
    CHCH-DT (Ind. - Hamilton)
    CBWT-DT (CBC - Winnipeg)
    CKY-DT (CTV - Winnipeg)
    CKCK-DT (CTV - Regina)
    CBXT-DT (CBC - Edmonton)

    CHAN-DT (Global - Vancouver)
    CKVU-DT (City - Vancouver)
    CIVI-DT (CTV Two - Victoria)
    CHNM-DT (Omni - Vancouver)
    CBAFT-DT (Radio-Canada - Moncton)
    CBFT-DT (Radio-Canada - Montréal)
    CFJP-DT (V - Montréal)
    CFTM-DT (TVA - Montréal)

    CBOFT-DT (Radio-Canada - Ottawa)
    CBXFT-DT (Radio-Canada - Edmonton)
    CBUFT-DT (Radio-Canada - Vancouver)

    Bell currently carries 35 locals. I will be very surprised if Shaw Direct carries much more than this.

    I'm comparing Shaw Direct satellite to Bell and Telus satellite services, not Telus Optik TV. Telus satellite is restricted to carrying the channels Bell carries. However it's not like Telus Optik has a very good track record either, the new Corus channels are the exception, they haven't carried many of the other new channels at launch so and it's likely they wont do the same for any new Shaw Media specialty channels, but it's a very strong possibility that they wont be available on Telus satellite.



    Where do I start with this one...

    1.) Telus DOES carry FX Canada HD and Nat Geo WILD HD. Along with a bunch of new Corus channels as well.

    Again, referring to Telus satellite.

    2.) Even after all the additions Shaw Cable/Shaw Direct is still missing these channels; Much HD, HLN HD, Peachtree HD, TCM HD, Sony Movie Channel, MGM Channel, AXN Movies, Warner Films, Discovery Science HD, Investigation Discovery HD, Travel + Escape HD, Cartoon Network HD, Teletoon HD, WPIX HD, KTLA HD, WSBK HD, NFL Network HD, CBS Sports Network HD, Game Show network HD, Spike HD, CBC News Network HD, CTV News Channel HD, CP24 HD, Bold HD, Documentary HD, Sun News Network HD, BBC World News HD, MSNBC HD. Don't tell me that all these channels are low rated channels. Many of these channels have demand and Bell and Telus carry a good chunk of these while Shaw/Shaw Direct still don't.
    Some of them are high rated (Teletoon, CBC News Network and to a lesser extent MuchMusic, Investigation Discovery, Discovery Science, and CTV News Channel) but many of them are low rated, like I said their satellite competitor doesn't have some popular channels available on Shaw Direct either (and they don't even have them in SD, at least Shaw Direct has most of the popular ones in SD) I stand by my statement that Shaw Direct's upcoming HD lineup will be appealing without those channels especially when you add in the popular channels not available on Bell/Telus satellite.

    What a load of crap. Bell offers more CTV channels because CTV is owned by Bell just as Shaw Direct will likely have more Global channels because Shaw owns Global. Even if Global didn't have HD newscasts on many of their channels; Shaw Direct would still favour Global over CTV. Look at how they implement simsubs since Shaw took over Global; Shaw Direct does blanket nation wide simsubs of Global HD over Eastern US feeds yet they don't do that with CTV's Toronto feed.

    What part of my statement do you disagree with? Of course it's because they own CTV, I was just going further into detail for why they added them. They want Bell subscribers to watch CTV's HD programming on their local CTV station, that's why they added so many CTV HD stations. They did it to help CTV, not to give viewers more local HD content. Not saying there is anything wrong with Bell wanting to help CTV (nor is there anything wrong with Shaw Direct giving Global simulcasts across Canada) but it should be pointed out that this is why these channels were added and how it resulted in little value for their customers.

    Also, currently Shaw Direct does not favor carriage of Global over CTV. In every market where they carry a Global station they carry a CTV station from the same market. Before Bell was required to add all the locals there were some markets where CTV was carried but not Global, yet they made sure to carry a CTV station in every market they carried Global. Shaw Direct has had the opportunity to give Global and Global HD more carriage than CTV and they have not done so. Obviously this could change but to date Shaw Direct has not given better carriage to Global.

    These are the locals they carry right now.
    You are missing the point, again, Very few of those locals actually have local news in HD. It's not very impressive to have a bunch of locals airing the exact same programming at the exact/similar time as other CTV HD stations, local news is what makes these stations unique. I'm saying how they will have more locals producing news in HD and you are responding with how many HD locals Bell carries like there's no difference between a HD station with HD local news and a HD station with SD local news and HD programming available on other channels (in most cases available at the exact same time), well I think there's a pretty big difference.


    Everyone one knows exactly what you are doing here; you are implying that Shaw Direct is going to carry all the Global locals because they have local news in HD; which is Bull. It's common ownership and nothing more. Also outside of Western Canada (where Shaw Direct probably has more subs anyway) Global isn't exactly a market leader in news anyway. Also many of the channels Bell carries that isn't affiliated with CTV have newscasts that are either HD or 16x9.
    No, I never said that, i'm just pointing out the fact that all Global stations have their news in HD and will be carried on Shaw Direct. Who cares if it's because they own Global? What matters is with Shaw Direct you get more local news in HD than Bell. That's a fact.

    Also there are plans for Bell to add Global Edmonton, Global Winnipeg and Global Halifax in HD.
    Oh really, they are sure taking their time, why wait months/years for Bell to add them when they will be available to all Shaw Direct subscribers May 29th. What about other Global stations like Global Regina? Will Bell carry those? Shaw Direct will!

    Because you think that Shaw Direct will have a superior product and I strongly disagree with that. I'm simply trying to state a fact that historically Bell has been much better at providing HD locals. Shaw Direct has basically ignored the west for nearly 10 years. Also there are plans for Bell to add Global Edmonton, Global Winnipeg and Global Halifax in HD.

    Oh, and Shaw Cable and Shaw Direct have a good track record? By my count, two channels they launched day-in-date; Nat Geo WILD HD and Global News BC1; two channels they own. Give me a break.

    Some of them are high rated (Teletoon, CBC News Network and to a lesser extent MuchMusic, Investigation Discovery, Discovery Science, and CTV News Channel) but many of them are low rated, like I said their satellite competitor doesn't have some popular channels available on Shaw Direct either (and they don't even have them in SD, at least Shaw Direct has most of the popular ones in SD) I stand by my statement that Shaw Direct's upcoming HD lineup will be appealing without those channels especially when you add in the popular channels not available on Bell/Telus satellite.
    Again, there is demand for it and also I didn't list every channel. Let's not forget about the French channels, sports packages and international channels that is lacking on Shaw Direct. I wont even expand on their really dated hardware.


    All I am trying to point out is that Shaw Direct has had a long history of providing an inferior product. They have spend the last 10-15 years over promising and under delivering and it shows in the sub counts. Bell has about 1.8 million subscribers, Shaw Direct has somewhere in the neighbourhood of 800,000.

    One other thing that I wanted to point out is Shaw Direct's overall satellite capacity with the launch of Anik G1.

    Currently Bell has 32 transponders at 82°W and 32 transponders at 91°W for a total of 64 transponders

    Shaw Direct has 30 active transponders on Anik F1R and 24 on Anik F2 bringing the total to 54 transponders. With the addition of Anik G1's 16 transponders they will have 70 transponders. It's not that big of an advantage over Bell and remember Bell has already converted all of their HD and international channels to MPEG-4/8PSK turbo so the bandwidth available is probably about the same or possibly slightly better on Bell.

    TVViewer uses marketing tactics by choosing his words carefully.

    So far, all of the 11 Global stations produce local newscast in HD, while CTV converted only 14 of their 22 O&O stations to HD, but a minority of them produce newscast in HD. In his mind, Shaw Direct will provide all Global stations in HD along with the few CTV stations with HD newscast, therefor, "this is a huge advantage over Bell satellite".

    Then, he mentions that Shaw Direct will carry "popular" channels. Shaw owns something like 6 out of the Top 10 analog and 6 out of Top 10 digital specialties, which will all be offered in HD. Everything else is meaningless, in his own mind...

    You are seriously making this argument considering the fact that Shaw Direct has dragged their feet the last 10 years in terms of offering decent HD? Shaw Direct could have been offering more channels a long time ago if they had secured space on Anik F3.

    Yes because I don't see how what Shaw Direct did in the past has anything to do with what they are doing now. The facts are Shaw Direct has these channels and Bell does not. How does it make any sense for someone who wants these Global HD channels (along with HD & SD feeds of Nat Geo Wild, BC1, Lifetime, FX, H2, Slice, ect.) to wait months/years for Bell to add them when they are available now on Shaw Direct just because Shaw Direct didn't have them before. Who cares if they didn't have them before, they have them now and Bell does not. That should be the only thing that matters to most people.

    I'm not denying that Bell had a better selection of HD channels in the past but in my opinion Shaw Direct's selection of HD channels is now better, that's why I subscribe to them, and I know I wont be the only one with this opinion, there are several high rated HD channels available on Shaw Direct that are not available on Bell. The fact that they are Shaw Media channels changes nothing, they are still popular high rated channels many people want and they are only on Shaw Direct.

    Sorry but I'm willing to bet that more people will still think Bell is superior not just for channel selection but also hardware. Bell still overs more HD specialties, more French HD and more HD sports packages. Plus don't forget all the ethnic services that Bell offers.

    Also I don't think it will be long before Slice, H2 and Lifetime HD end up on Bell. Dito for Telus, Rogers, Eastlink and Cogeco.

    As I predicted, there is some unhappy customers. No CBC News Network HD or any Canadian news channel, other than BC1 added. No CTV Two HD affiliate at all, still doesn't carry the complete suite of TMN channels, new US Superstations in HD and French Canadians really got short changed on this as well, only 4 additional French specialties.
