  • Shaw Direct On Demand Enhancements: A variety of VOD enhancements have been implemented including the ability to order a title in either standard-definition or HD, faster skip forward and back, more consistent display of season/episode information and connectivity improvements.
  • Multi-Audio Selection: Channels equipped with additional audio tracks, such as DVS or French, now display an icon on the menu bar. Simply press SOURCE on your Shaw Direct remote to select the alternate track. Your selection will be restored to your default settings when you change channels.
  • External Hard Drive Support (Advanced HDPVR 630 only): You can now connect an external eSATA hard drive to your Advanced HDPVR for up to 2.0 TB of additional recording capacity – that's over 1,000 standard-definition hours or 300 HD hours!

Locals & time shift bundle

Good news for local programming fans: Shaw Direct has changed the way it packages Canadian over-the-air (OTA) channels for new customers: Global, CTV, Citytv, CBC, SRC, TVA, V, etc.

Effective October 1st, new customers now receive the Canadian OTA channels from their local province only (Atlantic customers receive the channels from the Atlantic region). Customers subscribing to English or bilingual packages also receive the east OR west US Nets. Customers can add the Timeshift Bundle to watch local channels from across Canada and both east AND west US Nets in standard and high-definition.

Containing up to 63 channels for only $4.99 per month ($5.04 including LPIF), Timeshift is our largest bundle. Plus, it will continue to grow with the launch of our new satellite, Anik G1, as we add every available Canadian OTA channel. This represents a considerable investment for our business and huge value for customers.
