Shaw cable problems

Postby kal » Thu May 17, 2018 12:33 am

Anyone experiencing channel problems with Shaw over the past few days?

Channel 30, MeTV, has been dark for more than 48 h as of this writing. The company initially said the fault lay with user boxes but that is no longer the line being used. Beyond saying it is a major problem there is no other word from the company.

This evening numerous Shaw channels, particularly the lower ones, began sputtering and pixelating. For a brief period several channels, including 3 and 11, went dark.

Anyone have an update on what is amiss?

MeTV on on Telus either. Told it's a problem originating with the station and there's no estimated time to get it back.
Houston, We're dealing with morons!.

TCM was dropping out completely or frozen last night.
Usually, that means satellite problems.
