That is true. It reflects a new satellite and the multi-year conversion of SD programming to HD. Which is great. Shaw is making big moves to catch up Rogers & Bell/Telus. The trouble so far is that these converted-to-HD channels have yet to show up on Shaw Cable, which itself just underwent years of digital conversion. And it isn't a few channels. Its actually quite a substantial number, almost everything that is SD-only on Cable now.

if you want more HD, you have to get Shaw direct or Telus or Sasktel in Saskatchewan which I am going to next year once i can afford my contract buyout.
