Is there a reason why there isn't an east feed of HBO in Winnipeg ? Unless I'm mistaken and there is a channel package that I'm missing ?
I didn't know there was an HBO East feed, I thought HBO Canada, there was only one feed, I could be wrong though.
The only difference between the east and west feeds of HBO is that the west feed is 2 hours behind.
If you live in the four western provinces, you receive the west feed of HBO as part of the Movie Central package. In Ontario and further east, the east feed of HBO is part of the Movie Network package. In Winnipeg, as only Movie Central is available, we only have access to the west feed.
It means that we have 2 hours later to get our Games of Thrones fix!
Edit: I originally wrote that the difference between the east and west feeds is 3 hours. I've now corrected this to 2 hours. Otherwise, the west feed is just a timeshift feed of the east feed and the programming is identical.
I stand corrected
It's too bad we can only get the west feed. Your other competitor here in the city offers both feeds.
Thank you for the feedback nosaj72 - I will pass this along to our product teams to get this on their radar, if this is not something that they are already aware of.
