Can't answer my ala carte question ?
In regards to full a la carte, that option is currently not available. There has been some news on the CRTC considering different channel bundling options for consumers but that has not arrived here yet.
There are still a few channels that you can add as pick and pay, rather than adding a full theme pack, if you have the traditional cable packaging or the newer Personal TV. See http://www.shaw.ca/personal/television/channel-listings/ where you can download the channel packaging to see which ones are available as pick and pay.

It shouldn't take the CRTC to force you to do what's right!
Why not some kind of hybrid, where customers can still get "theme pack" pricing if they pick 10 channels. Make our own theme packs.
Why did the previous discussion on this get locked?
This is a long standing request which we're fully aware many people want. Ali has summed it up in the reply above, and that information is basically all there is to share on the topic at this time. These threads are locked because they tend to not be constructive at all. We appreciate everyone's opinion and understand the frustrations that come along with the restrictions being discussed here. If anything is to change with this, we'll be sure to let everyone know.
