Hopefully, someone can fill us in. Actually, the Shaw conversion is still ongoing with a lot more stations being converted or dropped in September.

All of the standard definition and High Definition Canadian and US channels will not be available. Some of the specialty channels such as Bravo and TSN should be available.

Some of the high definition channels are available down in Apache Junction, AZ. Also, some of the ones that where converted, retained their place on F1/F2 satellites. I suspect that some of the other conversions will also be on F1/F2 and we will be able to see them. Time will tell.

Shaw no longer supports satelite south of the 49th. The current satelite will shutdown Sep/Oct. We winter in southern AZ and will be going with a "streaming" service that offers 5000 channels at $20/ month + purchase of the equipment.

Wow. Lots of incorrect information in this thread. ALL channels that are on satellites F1R and F2 WILL be available south of the border. NONE of the channels on G1 will be available. Shaw Direct is dropping almost all of the standard definition channels - (almost) all channels will be High Definition.

Changes are ongoing, not finished.

If you're really interested in the details, go to digitalhome.ca

Won't you also need unlimited high speed bandwidth (aka internet access) in the park you're at? That might add issues and/or $$$ to the project.

This is not my work. lonsat on digitalhome.ca produced this list. He said: "I created this channel listing based on the information from Shaw Broadcast and Shaw Direct. When all the transitions are done, largely by the end of September, the following link shows you what channels will be available outside of the G1 footprint. The channels crossed out in red are or will be on G1. The remaining channels are or will be on F1R or F2."

Channels available way south of Canada
