I know that Shaw gets peppered occassionally about getting new HD channels, and people get disguntled at the perception that other providers offer much more.  Recently here we have seen info/requests re FX and AXS (HDNet).  Personally, I would love to see CBC News Network HD, for one.  Every other provider has this HD channel.   But I also understand that we are waiting for a new satellite (ANIK G1) to be set up, sometime later this year, to fill in the spaces created in the recent channel realignment.  Is the wait for the satellite the reason behind the delays in expanding HD channels?  Or is there something else?  In particular, any news on what we might expect re new HD channels?  It is a lot easier being patient when you have some sense that requests are being heard, that we can get some sense of what might be coming, and when.
