Conversion to HD - In 2019?

I see at Shaw Broadcast that conversion from MPEG 2 to MPEG 4 is underway, which will leaders to upgrading to HD of all convertible channels (those that have HD versions now). This is good news, especially as it will go a long way to bringing most available HD signals to Shaw customers. However, the timeline seems to be quite long - 3 years to completion, with the HD upgrades not to happen until year 3 (2019). Is this then case? Is there no way that Shaw Cable cannot at least add in what Shaw Direct already has? I know I've asked similar questions before but I don't get solid answers, especially when Shaw Broadcast actually has a plan in place - which can be found with a little internet sleuthing.  http://www.shawbroadcast.com/Documents/mpeg/MPEG%204%20Conversion%20-%20Phase%203%20Timeline_Ver_7_2019.pdf
