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.
Note: These changes DO NOT apply to existing customers.
