Shaw Broadcast has announced the End of Life for Anik F1R
Anik F1R EOL bulletin
During this summer (2020) signals will move either to G1 or F2. The G1 moves will mean a few more signals will be lost in the south. No details yet on which signals will move or when. Expect both Shaw Broadcast and Shaw Direct to post updates much like the MPEG4 conversions in 2018 and 2019 in the coming months.

Is there a change that G1 will turn on some of the KU transponders for a CONUS beam? I know that G1 already offers KU coverage South America.

From what I can see the ku beams only cover South America and the down link antenna were probably designed that way. The extended ku that G1 uses to cover Canada is only licensed for Canadian coverage and does not and will not extend into the US.
