Hi guys,


My apologies if this has been asked about before, but I'd like to know why Shaw seems to have the fewest HD channels of all the major providers - and even some not so major providers - in the Country?  I got a flyer from Telus offering their service and it seems to have a lot more HD channels available.  I then checked some other providers in other parts of the Country and many also seem to offer more than Shaw does.  I understand Shaw just added 3 new HD offerings but that still puts them far behind the pack from what I've seen.  As a long time Shaw customer it bothers me that I don't seem to have the same amount of choice that others with other providers do.


My question is: Why does Shaw offer a lesser amount of HD channels - and no I don't mean On Demand either - and when, if ever will they catch up to other providers in this area?
