bob frombc, I just told you what my research comes up with. Just google satellite info and you can come to your own conclusion. I guess we'll both find out this winter.

Might add that the letter to John Dorsey , Director Telsat from Chantel Beaumier, Director of Space Services on the Government of Canada website includes Section 7... Orbital Debris Mitigation;

"The Satellite, at the end of it's life shall be removed from the Geostationary Orbit region in a

manner consistent with Recommendation ITU-R-S.1003, Environmental Protection of the

Geostationary Satellite Orbit.

So I would take that to mean that F1 will be disposed of at the end of it's life. Launched in 2004. designed for 15 years. It is now 2019. So..... if I have to watch the Grey Cup in a Sports bar, so be it. Life is good.

Want to sell me your Shaw Direct equipment? For cheap of course.

Since you edited your post after I replied: part of the reason Shaw is doing this is to reduce the transponder occupancy on the satellites. That means lower power requirements and probably longer life.

Joe , I hope your right. If Shaw in Mexico goes off the air, you can have it for free.
