I'm just wondering if Shaw direct plans to put out a new pvr anytime soon,even just a new one doesn't have to be 4k but just more options.Bells has way more storage.
Hello rayrayj,Thank you for taking the time in writing to us here! We certainly appreciate your inquiry and interest in some new equipment. Currently there is no word on a release of new equipment. Our current line up is as follows on our sites here: Digital Cable Box, HD PVR, And More | Equipment | TV | Shaw and Shaw Direct - Satellite Dish Receivers and Hardware | Equipment - Shaw Direct. As more and more amazing content continue to roll out, we do acknowledge the need for larger capacities for PVRs and more functions to come with them. Currently on the market, there are 3rd party devices that can extend the storage, such as expanders that have E-Sata connectivity, however they are unsupported by Shaw. 4K is certainly growing but is still in a very young state in which content availability is limited. Definitely let us know if you have some more questions for us.
Cheers,Tony | Community Mod.
I switched over to TELUS and now have a 4K PVR which has far more storage capacity than my previous standard PVR. Based on my past experience, don't expect SHAW to offer anything anytime soon. They are always so far behind the other providers which is why I dropped them in favor of TELUS. I was able to upgrade my equipment and get a small amount of 4K programming now and all for basically the same monthly cost that I was paying to SHAW.
