    A bit off topic but, I wonder why Shaw Direct has both an east and west feed for Dusk? It doesn't have an east and west feed like Showcase or Family does. You look at their schedule and switch timezones from EST to PST, each program is showing 3 hours apart, just like what would happen with national feed. If there was an east and west, a show airing at 12 EST would still air at 12 PST. What's the deal here?

    I don't think Rogers is going to offer a free preview even though the channel is available on the Internet and FTA(C/KU Band) free. I think the neo-cons subscribers would go insane if they saw a it being promoted on channel one.

    Julie, are you getting it now on Bell?

    As for the free preview, here's confirmation on thestar.com:
    Vidéotron, Quebec’s dominant cable provider, is offering the service free for three months as part of its news package, Burman noted, adding he hopes other players in the market will follow suit or offer similar incentives.
    So officially, only Videotorn is offering the free preview but others might follow.
