As part of our ongoing effort to  upgrade our network and make future enhancements to our TV and Internet offerings , we are retiring several TV boxes in select areas of Calgary, Edmonton, and Vancouver as of March 23, 2023.

If you use any of the TV boxes listed below, you may have received a call, email and/or an invoice message from Shaw to discuss this change and hardware replacement options. The great news is, this means you have qualified for the best TV experience—Ignite TV (formerly known as BlueCurve TV).

Please contact us to upgrade your equipment and discuss your installation options.
