Anik G1 Footprint

Further to yesterday's discussion. The future of Shaw Direct. Maybe not for a couple more years but eventually Snowbirds will start losing both HD and SD channels as programming is migrated to the new Anik G1 bird that Shaw Direct has contracted use of for 15 years, the expected lifetime of the satellite.


  1. Well as long as we can still get the regular channels we can live without HI def.
    Thank for the update

    1. I edited my post to reflect that the CSR also told me that some SD channels will be transferred to G1 as well. We will just have to wait and see.
