Good afternoon,


We are very excited to announce that the following three HD channels will be joining the Shaw HD line-up on April 4th, 2013:

  • radX
  • HIFI


All three channels will be on free preview until July 4th, 2013. MPEG4 hardware is required to view these channels.


These channels will launch in nearly all Shaw service areas. For customers in Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon and Vancouver, these channels will be launched in neighbourhoods that have completed the Digital Network Upgrade (DNU).


Channel numbers:

  • 247 – eqhd
  • 248 - radX
  • 249 – HIFI


We will announce pricing information for these channels in the coming weeks.


For the past number of months these channels have been at the top of the list of customer channel requests relayed to our agents.  We track channel requests that are submitted by our agents on behalf of customers on a monthly basis.
