What happened to Food and HGTV? They have disappeared. I was under the assumption I was paying for them?

Harry -  they're in HD at 127 for HGTV  and 129 for Food

Good to know.  I wondered what happened to them too.

My HGTV hasn’t moved. Still at 192 and 627. However, I did lose a couple channels that I enjoyed with Shaw’s latest update. My 127 is the Sportsmen Channel and 129 is the Fight Channel.

Shaw is replacing all Standard Definition channels with HiDef channels. But they are not necessarily using the same channels. So, wise to look around first, get their latest channel lists, etc.

We received a notice last week from Shaw about needing equipment upgrade in order to access the third satellite with the new hi def channels.  The message I get on the system says we need to upgrade our dish.  Below is a copy of the notice.  Anybody else get this?  If yes, what do you plan to do about it?

Starting July 25 and over the next two months, the LD channels are migrating to HD. Some channels (eg. Slice) just abruptly left. Darn! This site won't accept an xlxs file format or I"d post all 14 pages of the spreadsheet.

But only if the HD signals can reach this far south. The footprints of Shaw's new satellites don't reach this latitude. Shaw's services are designed to serve the Canadian market; it's a pure bonus they even have a satellite allowing a signal this far south after so many years. 

The future is streaming.

You might want to do a search here on the topic; it's been covered many times. The short of it is there is no point in upgrading, because we can't get anything from the third bird. You'll be fine with what you have... until Shaw has to leave the current two satellites. Whenever that may be.

The difficulty here is they are bombarding clients with requests to upgrade. I spoke with them several times before I finally got someone who said he would put a "do not contact" note on my file. They were phoning my Canadian number regularly.

Thanks CG for your response.  Good to know.

I have my own account from NS. Can. Just on the phone with Shaw to remove a special order channel.  The op was hard sell that I should change my package.  I looked on the new line up he offered for my old favourite channels & they were different numbers.  I am concerned that these new numbers might be Sat 3 channels & if I switch I would not be able to receive them.  I am staying on my original programming even though I might get a better deal on the new packages.

Any thoughts????

Is there someone who would like to share their SHAW account?  We have a box but need access to a satellite?  If so, what would be our cost us?
