[Shaw] Shaw Direct Ontario Package Deal and receivers
This has been an ongoing deal for new customers in Ontario for Shaw Direct. Similar packages are available in other parts of the country but i do not have specifics on them.
What i read on other forums is that current customers have had varied success at trying to change to this package, but the best luck has been through emailing customer service and asking them to switch to this package.
I just signed up for this package through a direct sales rep as the person at Shaw wouldnt offer it to me. (EDITED because of the previous forum, PM me if you want the contact information for the sales rep)
I was able to get 3 HD receivers each at $100 + a one time imediate account credit of $125 + a 50$ pay per view credit good for 8 movies within 3 months. I am getting it installed on Saturday but definetely a good deal for the receivers and for the package of programming its the best ive seen.
Ontario Value Package 38.99
Multi receiver fee 5.99
Total monthly fee = 60$.
Also Shaw doesnt have any extra fees like Bell's $3 one
Shaw was going to offer me my first HD receiver for 49$ and then 200$ each for the next 2 and a 100$ instant credit and the 50$ payper view credit, but they were not able to offer that direct sales package for some reason.
The only thing that i just read is that the receivers might become discontinued at the end of the summer and new ones released, but still cant complain for this deal, alot better then what i found for Bell or Rogers.
UPDATE: I have updated the channel listing above because mine was out of date. Pretty similar package, just a few more channels have been added however the price for HD sports has increased because more channels have been added. Also note all the pick and play channels that you can add to this package.
Also ill explain the receiver promotions better. Promo prices are:
SD = 49.99
HD = 99.99
HD PVR = 249.99 (refurbished but comes with the same warranty ect)
On top of those promo prices you get an instant credit of $75 for the first receiver no matter which one of the above you order and then $25 in additional credit for each additional receiver no matter which of the above.
On top of these credits you will receive the $50 pay per view credits that are good for 8 movies over 3 months time. Hope this helps to clarify things
UPDATE: THE PRICES HAVE INCREASED TO 40.98 for the bundle itself and i believe some of the add on packages have increased a buck each or something.
UPDATE 2: Here are the promos for the new receivers
630 hdpvr $299
605 hd $99
$75 discount on the fisrt reciever and then 25$ on any additional
UPDATE 3: Here is the new channel lineup called digital indulgence. It replaces the Ontario Extra Value Package.
