Anyone using Canadian Shaw Direct TV in USA?
We previously used Bell ExpressVu when wintering in USA (although "officially" you cannot do this) but Bell somehow found a way to block satellite reception in most of USA so that was no longer an option. We switched to Shaw Direct (in Calgary, AB) after they confirmed that they don't block the signal and don't have a problem with Canadian subscribers taking their PVR/dish with them on their RV travels. It worked fine for us in Tucson last winter.
In the current RV Gazette (Canadian magazine) there is a report that the US FCC complained to their counterpart in Canada, the CRTC, that Shaw was not licenced to distribute their Canadian TV service to USA locations. The report went on to say that Shaw have now blocked their signal in the USA.
If this is the case, I'd need to find a new service before heading south for the winter (as cable is not an option in the parks we use).
Can any Canadian clients of Shaw Direct confirm if they are still able to receive TV service while in the SW USA?
