What is Shaw's stance on upgrading/replacing Freerange TV once Flash is fully deprecated in 2020?

Grasshopper

It is becoming more and more onerous to use flash with each passing iteration of browser updates as all browsers are now actively making it more painful to use Flash, and in 2020, Flash will be fully deprecated.  I haven't seen any indications from Shaw about a replacement for this.

Hey rels,

Thank you for reaching out! I haven't heard of any news about this. If there is a change, we will post more details on www.shaw.ca or our Community pages here.

Cheers,

Hello, its now 2019, soon to be 2020 which means Flashes support via chrome(among other browsers/apps/programs will be no more effective start of December but yet Shaw has yet to even address what could be very large problem for alot of shaw users. Why migration to somethng else open source/web or otherwise, html 5 for 1, has not been started let alone tested afaik. Why Hasnt Shaw given us paying customers a very much needed Answer as to what and when this will not just be addressed but fully implemented as it could be a deal breaker for continued subscription to their services should this not be fixed thus they do away with it completely. Some answers would be nice sometime soon...ie next 30 days at least. Thanks, J.

@Chiggz December 2020 is still more than a full year away. We do not have any details to share on what technology changes will be occurring on the back-end with regards to this, but do not have plans for the Freerange TV service to be discontinued.
