I am 45 minutes from Montreal and must pay for time shift to see Montreal english news. No problem for the French stations from Montreal, but Shaw expects me to watch Toronto local news?
It certainly depends on the area you are in. Which specific time shift channel are you tuning into?
Let me know from the channel list here: Channel Listing - Regional list of channels | Shaw.ca

Hey longtimeuser, if you're 45 minutes away from Montreal, you're obviously a Shaw Direct customer, not Shaw Cable, so that link that Tony gave you wouldn't apply.
I'm way over here in Vancouver so I can't test that directly. But in the morning, I'll check with one of our Montreal colleagues and get something for you!
Okay, so I have a reply for you.
It's based on the feed from the market you are closer to. So you seem to be closer to the Toronto market than you are to the Montreal market. This will give you those local channels.
But to quote my colleague at Shaw Direct - "Because we do not have French news channels from Toronto such as TVA, we use TVA Montreal feed which should be the closest."
There is nowhere in Quebec that is closer to Toronto than to Montreal! In my case, I am 80km from Montreal, 550km from Toronto. Does anyone have another answer?
I'd recommend getting in touch with Shaw Direct support as they should be able to assist you with this. Our team only handles residential Shaw Cable accounts, so it's out of our support scope. Most of the users here on the forums are Shaw Cable customers so they likely won't know, either.
