Starting July 4, 2023, we’re making upgrades to our network in these areas:

  • Assiniboia, SK
  • Manitouwadge, ON

This includes an update to TV channel feeds to better reflect your local time-zone and, for some customers, the retirement of older cable TV boxes that will not be compatible with our upgraded network.


The following channel feeds swaps will take place July 4th, 2023. You may need to re-set up any PVR recordings.

Current Feed New Feed
History TV West History TV East
Starz 2 East* Starz 2 West*
Teletoon West Teletoon East
W Network West W Network East
YTV West YTV East

 *Starz is the only feed going from East to West 


If you received an “Urgent Action Required” message on your invoice:

  • The cable TV box in your home will not be compatible with our upgraded network and needs to be replaced by July 4, 2023 to continue enjoying your full channel line-up.
  • To avoid any interruption to your television service, you can sign up for Shaw Direct Satellite TV before July 4, 2023.  We’re excited to offer you Shaw Direct with hundreds of HD channels, access to on-demand shows by connecting your TV box to the internet, and even TV on-the-go through Shaw’s BlueCurve TV App. As a thank you for being a loyal customer, you’re eligible for current customer offers when you contact one of our Shaw Direct agents today at 1-866-806-9590.
