Considering buying a 4k tv. Do I need a new box to go with it?
Sorry for any misunderstanding. Our forum friends are correct, at this time Shaw does not offer 4K content. We do not have an ETA of when this service would be offered. Please see 4K TV Service Explained for more information.
Your current HD box will work with the 4K TV as long as there is an HDMI input in the back of the TV.
Currently all boxes will have 1080P capabilities.

The boxes have a 1080p capability. That said, no channel broadcasts in 1080p. Some VOD content is. Most channels are 720p or 1080i.
Not what I was asking. Rodgers Sportsnet broadcasts Blue Jays games in 4k. When I get a 4k tv, will I be able to see the games in 4k with my existing box, or do I need a new box for it?
That is only available to people within a few areas around Toronto.
Shaw doesn't support 4K at this time.
You will need a new box, when Shaw offers it.
The others are saying there is no 4k content with Shaw, so there is no reason for a new box to show it yet. Telus does have some 4k content though.
