What or where is the FREE sportnet HD we are supposed to be getting? Certainly isn't one with any hockey like other carriers.
Do you have one of the Shaw HD boxes? You do receive several free channels from channel 200 on up. Sportsnet may not be one of the free channels however. If memory serves, you need to subscribe to the HD Plus package (about $12/mth) to get the sports stations. Then you will receive all HD channels except the movie channels & and 1 or 2 premium ones.
It looks like Sportsnet is covered under the HD Basic on channels 223 and 224. Sportsnet World is a premium HD channel at $16.95/mth.
Sportsnet World is $16.95 for both the standard definition and HD versions of the channel. Keep in mind that the HD version is MPEG4 and requires an MPEG4-capable HD box. More info on MPEG4 channels and HD boxes can be found at Guide to MPEG4 Channels and Digital Cable Boxes.
Info on all free previews can be found at Shaw - TV:News and Free Previews.
Free preview of Sportsnet World? Good to know. I never hear of any of the free previews, and I'm not motivated enough to flip through channels I know I don't have hoping for a preview. Thanks Lance.
EDIT: Found out the free preview is for Sportsnet One, not Sportsnet World. Too bad.
Hmm, yeah, I should have been more clear.
