Television

The Accessible Channel

The Accessible Channel, or TACtv, is part of Shaw's programming, available to subscribers of Digital TV or HDTV. The national English-language satellite-to-cable network has described video and captioned programming 24 hours a day, offering deaf and hard-of-hearing viewers access to high-quality news, information, drama, entertainment and other programming.

Closed Captioning

Closed-captioning text on TV programs is an excellent tool for deaf and hard-of-hearing viewers to enjoy Shaw Television programming.

  • Shaw's closed-captioning capabilities provide visual text of a program's audio as it is heard. Broadcasters provide closed captioning in most of their programming.
  • You can turn captions on or off with your TV's remote. Check your manufacturer's website or TV User Guide for step-by-step instructions on how to set it up.
  • Shaw's HD Boxes and HDPVRs provide closed caption decoding for all channels, including those in high-definition. Use Power/Menu to access User Settings to turn captioning on and off.

Call Display

See who's calling before you pick up the phone. Your caller ID-equipped phone or caller ID unit will display the incoming caller's name and telephone number, if available. This feature is included with all our Shaw Phone plans.

Voicemail to Email

It might be easier to hear your messages on your computer instead of over the phone. You can forward your Voicemail messages to your email account, ensuring you can stop and rewind the message at your leisure. It's also an easy way to save messages for future reference. This feature is included with your Voicemail.

Call Forward

Send your phone calls to a friend or family member to pick up. Call forward is included with Shaw Home Phone plans and can be activated using these steps:


1. Activate this feature by dialing *72.
2. When you hear the dial tone, enter the 10-digit number you’d like your calls forwarded to.

Distinctive Ring

Our Distinctive Ring lets you know the call is for you. Give out three different phone numbers that go to one line, so you'll know who's calling and why. Distinctive Ring can be added to any Shaw Home Phone plan for $4.00 per month.

Message Relay Service (711)

Message Relay Service, or 711, allows you to talk on the telephone via a teletypewriter (TTY). A specialized operator acts as an intermediary for the two parties. Message Relay Service is included with all our Home Phone plans.
