Shaw will launch the station at 9 AM March 14.
According to the press release "Global News: BC 1 will be available to Shaw cable subscribers in high definition on channel 216, as well as in standard definition on channel 21 for the Greater Vancouver Area, and channel 111 for the balance of B.C. In addition, Global News: BC 1 will also be made available on channel 2 in Grand Forks and Salmon Arm and Channel 88 in Quesnel.
Just as I predicted in my submission to the CRTC when Shaw was seeking approval for this station, they launch it in HD, before adding other news services in HD So when will Shaw add non Shaw owned news services in HD like CBC and CTV? or MSNBC?
