Is shaw going to release a new channel lineup for the march switch over before march so we can get a heads up on what channels we will want?
Or is shaw not going to follow the crtc guide lines for march?
We will soon be releasing full information on our new Limited TV packages. That includes which channels are included and which add-ons will be available. Sorry I can't give you more info on that here but rest assured that we soon be putting up a page with more details.
Is it March 1 yet?
Not yet but it will be soon!
Sorry frank, didn't set out to mess up your calendar. I would like to see the lineup before crtc date so when/if I
call shaw, I already know what package(s) I want.
No worries, it'll probably take all of 2 minutes to figure out if it's good for you. Look at the skinny basic included channels, look at the cost for the 5 other channels you must have, and see if it's more or less than you are paying now. Easy peasy.
There is another thread that indicates that 'Limited' is being launched on the 16th.
Re: Timeline on skinny basic package
BC Cable TV Tax Exemption Update
Maybe BC only?
Thanks for the link Kevinds, BC only, good bet, if not you would think the shaw person that first answered my query would have pointed it out. I see telus has aready released theirs.
I hope that as part of Limited TV packages - or rather in addition to - Shaw will revisit the contents of their theme packs; currently there is only one "News" theme pack (Theme Packages, Themes| Theme Packs | Channel Packages | Shaw ) whereas Telus offers two (Channels | Browse Optik TV channels | TELUS.com ) why doesn't Shaw offer something like "News International" that Telus has? Whether the pricing of this theme pack is good or bad is another issue, but we should be able to get a pack that offers news from more than just North American perspective.
BTW any update on when we'll get BBC World News in HD?
We'll be announcing full details on the Limited TV package and its add-ons very soon now that will address your questions.
On BBC World New in HD, I haven't heard anything. Best there to send us a Channel Request.
