I am not sure if we will be adding K: HD to our lineup but we have shared your post with one of our Product Gurus here on the Community who may be able to shed some light.
There should be no question of whether KNOW HD would be carried, and on the launch date. We are fortunate to have one of the few provincial educational channels left in Canada. I believe the only other one left that offers such programming is TV Ontario, and from what I can see, their selection of programming is not the equal of KNOW. Does some of our tax money support this channel? The BC government? I know many viewers help through donations.
As stated above, the channel is only available through satellite, fibre optic and cable providers. British Columbians cannot receive the signal off air, therefore we depend on the TV providers.
There should be no delay. The HD version should be available on September 25th when the switch is thrown. I will see what happens with the various providers. I've been contemplating a change of providers for a long time and this could be the straw that breaks the camel's back for me.
It would be good PR for Shaw to announce carriage of KNOW HD on September 25th.
Apparently Shaw is going to carry K: HD starting on the 25th on channel 230. Carriage is limited to BC fibre fed markets.
