- $16/month for TSN or Sportsnet is way too much.
- you can get both for $25/month ( https://www.shaw.ca/tv/programming/channels/premium ) which is still too much but at least it's a bit cheaper. I'm only paying $40/month for the entire Total TV package so paying $25/month for just the TSN and Sportsnet channels sounds ridiculous.

@asha5000 -- note that Shaw's Basic TV, for $25/month, includes TSN1 and SportsNet (Pacific).  Included. Not $16 (plus taxes).

Given the current shortage of "live" sports, do you really need TSN 2/3/4/5 and SportsNet World?

On BlueCurve TV, all of the channels are included.

So, are you on some "grandfathered" plan, where additional "packs" can be added?

Actually I do have the Basic tv (Limited tv) for $25 but for some reason I don't have the Sportsnet Pacific or TSN 1 included in it....once this whole COVID 19 thing goes away it would be nice to get sports ....but it's even too bad Shaw doesn't offer Sportsnet Pacific or TSN 1 as pick & pay channels because who needs a whole Sportsnet pack or TSN theme pack?

@rstra -- does not include those channels

According to the Shaw web-site that I checked, before posting, those channels (5 & 23) are included, at least in my region, in the Limited TV package.

Weird. They aren’t mandated channels and aren’t included on this list and my brother doesn’t get them as part of his limited tv package in Victoria.

Grasshopper

Yes I do have Limited tv month to month (here in Vancouver) & curious if the Basic tv (for $25) is just the same as Limited tv? Is it just called Basic tv once on awhile or is it a different tv package perhaps a older package...that's what I'm.wondering about.....plus the fact that Shaw charges basically twice as much for the Sportsnet & TSN theme packs than Telus us what is puzzling.....& chatting with a Shaw agent online they said the prices are set by Shaw's head office.....plus they only come in theme packs not pick & pay.... because with the prices Shaw charges, not (for me anyways) worth to subscribe to.thrm....it would be nice if you want to watch hockey or baseball when it comes back on....but I wouldn't pay the amount Shaw charges

Actually, Basic looks like the non BlueCurve equivalent of Total TV, and I doubt it is $25 a month. 

My brother was able to add Sportsnet with Golf to Limited TV for $15 a month.
