Saw this on Shaw.ca News and Free Previews "Enjoy a limited-time free preview of Movie Central", in my area Movie Central is channel 280 but it is not on free preview. Which Movie Central channle is on free preview?
Looks like we have it available in the VOD Menu now on the Shaw Gateway:
Access through your Shaw Gateway
Referenced article: Movie Central Free Zone
Seems we have more titles available in there now too!
Hi there soso406,
I believe what you're looking for is in the VOD menu under "subscriptions" then "MC free zone".
I see, thanks
Do I have to order it from the website before I can view it on my Gateway? Not like other movies that I can select right on the TV screen?
I can't seem to find it either on the Gateway system in the VOD menu, so I will investigate this further.
In the meantime a couple workarounds:
Go to search in the Gateway menu, and search by title for: MC Free Zone, this will show all the free Movie Central titles to you. Or take a look here to order the content online: http://vod.shaw.ca/subscription/MC_Free_Zone/ and then resume it from My Orders on the Gateway.
Hi Ali, thanks for the work arounds. Tried and I can find the free titles. Would be great if you can look into why I can't find it on the VOD menu.
Thanks soso406 - glad to hear that worked. I have started to look in to this and will update the thread once we know more.
How do you access on regular shaw pvr, can get on my iPad but cannot find on tv?
On regular shaw digital PVR:
Classic Guide Digital Box
Hope that helps, if not let me know.
I Guess I don't have a regular shaw pvr, when I choose sod I do not have a choice of"my on demand"
Can you tell me by looking at your PVR, what the model # is?
There is an equipment guide here: Shaw Digital Boxes - Equipment Guide
Hi Ali, yes I have a DCX3510, much to my chagrin! Can u help?
On your HD Guide PVR (DCX 3510-M) you'll still have access to the same Movie Central Free Zone content, however this will be dispersed throughout the relevant genres.
Jeff is correct,
You may find using the search option as a more effective method:
Press Menu > Search > Type in: MC Free Zone > Then arrow to the right to see the "On Demand" search results
You will then see all the MC Free Zone results and can place the order from here as well:
The other option is to place the order or add to wishlist online http://vod.shaw.ca/subscription/MC_Free_Zone/ and then resume it from "My Orders" or "Wishlist" on your HD PVR VOD menu.
Hope this helps.
I Do not know what you mean?
Great tip from [shaw]ali there, you'll be able to find the MC Free Zone content by simply searching "MC Free Zone" or, alternatively, by browsing the titles through Shaw on Demand online: http://vod.shaw.ca/subscription/MC_Free_Zone/
I Do not understand what you mean
