Between June 4 and October 16, 2019, we will be completing network upgrades for Alert Bay, Nimpkish Heights, and Sointula, BC. These changes include converting the majority of your Standard Definition (SD) channels to High Definition (HD). The result will be a channel lineup that is nearly all HD! We will also be converting some SD channels from MPEG-2 format to MPEG-4, which means customers will require a MPEG-4 compatible digital box to continue to be able to view the channel. Shaw will proactively be contacting any customers who still do not have MPEG-4 compatible digital boxes connected to their TV’s to ensure they have the equipment they require.

 

**PVR NOTE – ‘Scheduled’ PVR Recordings on SD channels will be impacted. If you have series or individual programs scheduled to record on a current SD channel, those recordings will need to be reset after the SD channel has been converted to HD.

 

If you are seeing a One Moment Please or Not Authorized message on a scheduled date of changes, please see here for more info.

 

Please see below for a detailed breakdown of the changes and when they are taking place.
