You are now required to have a digital box on each TV

Every channel will be switching from analog to a superior digital format. This requires a digital box, HD box or HDPVR be connected to each TV in your home to continue receiving any channels. Your monthly programming costs will not be affected by the change. Shaw does not charge for additional outlets.

We'll make the move to digital easy for you

We're excited to provide you with:

  • A complimentary rental of a Shaw HD Box
  • Free installation of your new HD box
  • Assistance on how to use your new hardware and Shaw Remote

The benefits of digital

Simply by adding a digital box, HD box or HDPVR, you will receive the following at no extra cost:

  • Simple remote: Enjoy a new remote with fewer buttons to control both your TV and digital box.
  • On-screen programming guide: Instantly access your local TV listings. You don't have to wait to see what's on at a specific time or on a specific channel anymore. You can scroll through the listings on every channel or look ahead at least four days in advance - all with a click of your remote.
  • Extra channels: Receive up to an additional 15 channels at no extra charge just by connecting an HD box.
  • Access to on-demand: Rent and watch movies instantly or catch up on your favourite primetime shows for free just by clicking the On Demand button on your remote. Available for residential customers only.
  • Continuous commercial-free music: Choose from over 60 music channels.
