Is anyone else excited to watch the NFL combine in SD? I sure am!
Apologies that we do not currently offer NFL Network in HD. If you have not already, I would recommend completing our channel request forum: Shaw Channel Request form to let us know of your interest.
Hopefully it is something we can get down the road!
Yes I did flip to the NFL SD channel. Wow just looks terrible. I have to say its hard to believe in this day and age that Shaw has refused to put not only the NFL network in HD but many others channels as well. Almost every provider in Canada that I know of has NFL network in HD along with other channels. Does the request channel forum actually work? NFL HD has got to be one of the most requested channels over the years . Yet the weather channel , frame channel get HD channels???
"I would recommend completing our channel request forum" This is such a joke response. I have filled that form out many times for NFL Network HD. I have been writing Shaw for years about this...and get the exact same canned response.Shaw....are there any plans to get NFL Network HD? Why is it not part of the HD line up already? Can you please provide an honest response? And don't say you don't have the bandwidth or any BS like that, because if that's the case you can get rid of some of the crap HD channels you have (HiFi HD, Smithsonian Channel HD, radX HD) to make room for something people will actually watch, ie. NFL Network HD.
There is a lot into acquiring a particular channel, and not always something we can easily do. Cost, customer interest, broadcasting rights, contractual obligations etc. By filling out the channel request form, it shows interest in a particular channel, at which point we look into all other aspects to see about acquiring it. This is why the channel request form is a good thing and often we refer customers to it for any channel they have an interest in that we do not currently carry. It doesn't guarantee we will be able acquire the channel, but enough interest means we would look into it.
Customer interest....there is absolutely a lot of customer interest for NFL Network HD. I have read many online posts and requests for it for years. I know a lot of people who have filled out your form for the channel. You already have it in SD, other Canadian cable companies offer it in HD, so broadcasting rights isn't an issue either. Most channels should be offered in HD now, regardless. Shaw is way behind with this.
