Have not been on here in a bit, we are New Brunswickers with a home in Sebring Florida, wondering if there is still some channels from Shaw Direct available in Florida.
I don't know if Shaw Direct channel numbers are the same across Canada but our ones here in the Maritimes are 101 to 112 we also pay for 257 and 262. That's all we watch down there ie the news and a few news bits from Bloomberg.
As we have been gone since March 19th, 2020 and still can't get back but maybe the US border will open in or around Sept 20th if so we will be going probably in October late.
I know the F1 & F2 channels were in jeopardy when we were there so not surprised if their gone.....hope not.
So if anyone knows appreciate any information, thanks!

BTW also posted on the Digitalhome.ca in the "Shaw Direct in areas south of Canada"

I'm on the Alabama Gulf Coast and still get most (only lost a few) of the Shaw Direct channels that I've always gotten.

It depends upon the antenna you are using. Must be the larger dish and have the proper updated LNB. You won't get everything but you will get many.

Thanks everyone for your valued replies, appreciate that.
If you get a chance can you try channels 101 to 112 to see if they show up as being available?

We do have the latest LNB and the bigger dish that Shaw sent to us back in the days when they were allowed to help you with coordinates, etc.,like maybe Circa 2012 or so.

Again thanks for your replies as soon as the US border opens we will be down to spend our 79 cent Canadian dollars.....LOL

Thats because it is a Canadian Sat service, sold only to Canadians with Canadian addresses that are verifiable and not sold in USA.

Service outside Canada for Canadian subscribers is not guaranteed and Shaw Direct will not help those subscribers who venture outside Canada boarders..

My RV with the Shaw Direct box is in the shop. When I get it back I'll try to remember to check 101 to 112.

Canadians or at least for us when traveling like to simulate their TV from back home, Shaw Direct is now the only way they can do it.
Used to be able back 10 years ago to use Bell Canada but the footprint through their satellites moved and only about 100 miles south of the CANADA/USA border is it able to be picked up.
Shaw Direct's satellites was the only source after that however their satellites are aging and Shaw is moving channels off unto satellites that like Bell Canada do not reach down into Florida or Mexico so it's sort of a mugs game as to whether the channels are still available and which ones. Eventually all Shaw Direct's channels will be gone.
Hope that sorta explains it.
