Great news on the new channels, look forward to trying them later. I know it is not directly about new channels but is new content - Eastlink did a good job getting the last minutes rights to the Moosehead game last night. I was impressed.

So which feed of CTV2 is in HD? One of the Ontario stations, or has ASN gone HD?

I am definitely glad to see these new channels, and at long last, we get CTV2 in HD. Since network programming is being aired now, it is hard to tell which CTV2 affiliate it is, but by scrolling through the program guide, it does seem to be a match of the Halifax's station's lineup.

As many of you receiving your April bills are aware, there is another price increase coming next month, and let's hope that Eastlink will use at least part of this increase to reach an agreement with Bell Media to carry their missing channels.

I've already used the price increase as an reason to drop the More Movies package. Time to bring my costs down a bit.

No sign of CTV2HD in my guide here in Oxford.
Teletoon HD is in the guide, but the data all says TBA.

There is also some new French HD in the guide.

I can't remember which are new, but everything from 770 to 779 is now populated.

I think that the new ones are:
773 D-HD
775 RDI HD
779 VRAK HD

The guide data is all there for the French channels.

No CTV2HD in Amherst either, but then again, we never got OMNI 1 and 2 HD yet either.

Nothing new in Ontario. Brings the missing HD channels to 11 plus the 6 other SSP channels. "Very close" is the tweet I got tonight regarding it.

Not a new channel but have a message on my box saying they are dropping Fox Sports World. I wonder why that is. So its a change in channels.

Fox sport World is just stopping operation.

Ontario did not get any new HD, it has to do with some term problem which should be fix very soon!!!!

I am not happy about it but they will be coming shortly!!

As Winters1 said, FSW is ceasing its operations. That is effective April 30th according to Shaw Media. It was removed from our guide almost a week ago. I knew this was coming a few years back.

Yeah they show the new HD on the "What's New" section of the website for Ontario and in the newsletter too but (Oops) no one got them.

It's soon...we waited 5 years to get HD up here, what's another few weeks for a few channels.

They list no version of CTV2 HD for this area. I'm assuming we'll get the Barrie or Ottawa feed when the time comes???

Sometimes they slip through the cracks....I've been there too. Most times I get a reply in minutes. I've seen them answer me a day or two later too. I'd like to know about all the HD since ABC Spark plus PBS Detroit and NFL Network. I was told very close ten days ago....what's it now? Very very close?

I've learned that Direct Messages tend to get attention better when just asking questions about services, pricing, future stuff, etc.
