Analog to digital conversion in Airdrie, Alberta

Effective February 20, 2013, analog channels in Airdrie will be converting into digital format. This means a Shaw Digital Box, HD Box or HDPVR* must be connected to each TV to receive all channels.

TVs not connected to a digital box that are currently receiving basic cable channels will require a digital box, or HD box or HDPVR* after February 20, 2013.

  • TVs already connected to a digital box will not be affected.
  • Your monthly programming costs will not change.

This conversion is part of Shaw's commitment to delivering a premium TV experience and is aligned with the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) and Government of Canada's objective of transitioning the broadcasting system to digital.


Order your digital box, HD box or HDPVR* today. 

There are many digital boxes and pricing options available. Shaw will work with you to find a solution that works best for you or for your business. If you are new to digital, we'll come to your house or business to install your new digital box and walk you through how to use your new hardware and Shaw Remote.
