TThe reply stated I had to apply to the CTRC to initiate getting a new channel In my area. That's not my job. SHAW should be meeting the publics desire for decent channels to watch. Typical of big business to pass the buck to silence the public.
Would you be able to clarify the situation for me? Did you file a channel request and this was the response that you received? When we receive channel requests, they are compiled and sent to our programming groups for review.
I did look up MAV TV, but it doesn't look like it's currently available in Canada, so a request to the CRTC to bring it into the country may be a necessary step. The channel itself may need to contact the CRTC to request entry as well.
Oh it would be so nice to have WRC coverage in Canada once again. Notice the have AMA Flat Track... would be cool if they also had FIM Speedway Grand Prix, another favorite of mine to watch.
Hopefully MAV TV can make their way into Canada one day. CRTC isn't the easiest to get by. BeIN Sport (mostly European Soccer coverage) is also fighting their way into Canada, as there's lots of unhappy La Liga (Spanish) and Serie A (Italian) soccer fans waiting for the channel to arrive.
TThanks for the people that showed support for getting MAV TV in Canada. I have applied to the CTRC but really expect them to ignore my request. I had to try as I know there are thousands of car crazy people like myself who miss what little we had. Thankfully History Channel have a few which I thoroughly enjoy but it still would be nice if Speed channel hadn't dropped the early Sat-Sunday two hours of car shows.
Just looking at this thread and would like to add my support to this as we are currently being shown on mavtv on a regular basis.On ASB sprint boat racing.
This channel will be available this fall. Please add it as well as Fox Sports Racing and CBS Sports Network.
There have been requests on the Shaw forum for MAV TV since October 2013. Of course the CRTC reason was invoked! LOL
Best to fill out the old Channel Request(s) Form 1.0 to let us know interest. Once it's available in Canada, we can certainly take a look.
This channel is being offered from the Anthem Media Group, and the channel will be MAV TV Canada. It would be nice if Shaw Direct would add the channel.

Can't even get FSR to replace SPEED. So good luck to get MAV TV. Disappointed by Shaw for sure!
Enough filling channel request forms. They get nowhere anyway. Let's face it just another way to make us waste our time thinking something will be done. At the end less channels for same amount of money. Is anyone really making any efforts at Shaw to please their customer base? I wonder.
