SHaw is very behind like we don't even have Disney channel we need to catch up
Shaw offers two Disney channels - Disney Junior & Disney XD (we also offer Disney XD in HD).
Aquiring channels from the American system is much more complicated than simply requesting them, we are always looking to pick up new content, but we have to work within the regulations of the CRTC and we have to weight the costs of adding additional programming against what we will have to charge you, the customer, for access.
Hopefully this helps address your concern
SO will we ever get as many channels as amercian cables and how long will it take. Also could u get Disney xd and other channels to the time of the west coast
As akiraly mentioned above, the CRTC is the body which regulates which channels are approved for carriage in Canada, so in many cases, there are channels we would certainly like to bring in, but which we can't without first having the CRTC approve them (which can take some time).
Would you be able to clarify your second request though on Disney XD and other channels? Are you referring to time shifting?
YEs I'm preferring to timeshifting
Ah okay. For time shifting, these are actually different feeds (generally for the main Canadian and American networks such as Global, CTV, CBS, etc...). There is only the one feed for Disney XD and other such channels.
Well could u time shift the channels that can be time shifted
Unfortunately it's not quite that simple. We receive feeds from broadcasters and then transmit them through our network, generally without any modification. Time shifting is possible with major networks because there are generally various regional versions of these channels (Global BC, Global Edmonton, CTV Toronto, CTV Calgary, etc...) which play much of the same content at different times.
so do u guys get to know what channels have been approves
Also when will shaw make a mobile tv app allowing customers twat watch live tv and recorded
We do work with the CRTC in our endeavours to bring in new channels, but we generally don't have any information on new channel launches until shortly before we make them available. On the app side, we do have teams working on new options for watching content and accessing/using our services, whether that's expanding our current apps or introducing new apps. I don't have anything official to share at the moment, but app development is definitely a part of our game plan.
U guys should make a list evry month showing wat channels the crtc has approved and if we would like to have them on shaw. Could I tell your superiors that and give me feedback on what they shaw
U.S channels very rarely get added to the crtc's approved channel list but you can find every foreign channel that is allowed in Canada right here
Shaw does have a list of recently added content here http://www.shaw.ca/television/news-and-free-previews/
This page shows our free previews and new content and is updated often. (The free previews are only available in areas which have undergone the DNU).
Hope this helps!
YA but could u wake a thing where u can vote for which one u want.
WEll thanks for your help I have one last question how many channels are approximately approved a year and what criteria are the checked on
Are you specifically referring to approvals made by the CRTC to allow American channels to be aired in Canada, regardless of the Canadian provider? If so, it may be best for you to review the CRTC's online documentation, or reach out to the CRTC regarding this as the question isn't specific to Shaw.
WEll thanks for that but Luke u guys get more stuff for your on demand like putting entire series duck dynasty on it
I Meant u guys need entire series for on demand and sometimes the hd capablity is not availab
Also howlose yahoo many does the crtc take to a prove one and can't make recommendations to them
family channel has a deal with Disney to air there Disney channel programming
Will shaw ever ger Disney Junior in HD? I have this option in SD but it is not the same...
Hi supert14 ,
At this time we have no details if/when Shaw will roll out Disney Jr in HD. We invite you to share your interest in this channel, or any other channels, by using our Shaw Channel Request form . Thank you.
