    Sun SetFor those that can get either SD or BTV and can get Sun News, well as this mornis on Sun News

    With an audience of 8,000 out of 5,100,000 homes that were paying for it, Sun News was a disaster from the getgo. Just like Target found out, Canada ain't the US especially with a company controlled and run by a Quebec Separatist. Good riddance to the Rant & Rave Racist Channel.

    Have my Shaw direc back up but?

    "Not sure why they mapped a satellite out Of US coverage?" There were no more Ku Band slots available in the 103 to 119 arc. That's why they had to opt for a Canada only Extended Ku slot

    Canadian gov't to push cable providers to unbundle channels

    Most consumers won't save. There'll be a "must carry" package for $20 to $25/month plus a "must buy" 1 Canadian service for each American service. The potential losers are Bell and Shaw Cat 2 channels which show the same programs on 17 services and the Bell/Rogers sports channels when subs cut...

    For those who use an address for Shaw outside the Toronto area.

    If he has a quad LNBF + 600 series receiver, he will get any channels changed to MPEG4. If he has older stacked (beer can style) LNBF, he will not.

    For those who use an address for Shaw outside the Toronto area.

    I dislike when people say: I told you so. But to repeat what I posted before the G1 launch. " To avoid black screens on Detroit/Seattle HD channels when simsubs are authorized; if you are outside the footprint of G1, DO NOT INSTALL a XKu band LNBF" This applies to ALL postal codes.

    Under the LTSS program, you have 1 year warranty and customer service on the receiver and dish. Disconnect the cable in from the dish at the receiver + power cord. Reconnect after 5 minutes. If this doesn't resolve the issue, call SD for a rehit.
