Which TELEVISION Cable providers are best in Vancouver?

I'm currently paying $52.57 (with tax) for 58 channels (Shaw) in Vancouver, is there better deals out there? Digital Cable? Satellite?

I really don't want to have to buy a box for a new service with more channels to get it either, if possible...

I just want television, I don't need the USA snooping in on my phone calls via a scanner/echelon on internet telephone. I like my conversations private, thanks. They already have my e-mail (and all the internet postings) and there's nothing I can do about that, but I can do something about my telephone.

What are you talking about... Bundling means that you pay for the service together instead of separately for discounts. :| So if you use both shaw cable and shaw high speed internet...they offer a discount. Unless you already have that.

I don't use the internet enough to warrant spending an extravagent amount on high speed cable, so I stick with dial up.

If you're not going to do anything illegal on the internet with high speed cable, than it's a waste of money.

I don't do the illegal thing.

Novus gives me 40 channels for $25. Cheaper if you bundle with high speed Internet.

hmm. well-off enough to be able to afford to buy $15 CD's and go to $10 movies, but not can't afford high speed?

did you know you can get 'light' high speed from telus for as low as $16/mo ?

I really have no clue what you're talking about. You should read what I said a second time. I DON'T WANT HIGH SPEED INTERNET.

Read the first post below. Where does it say anything about internet? And, there' no deals available with Shaw cable, except if you are student. If you can't afford $55/mo for 58 channels then ask shaw to change you to tier 1 which is abour $25/mo + tax.

You are currently using the Premiere Entertainment Bundle right? Full cable + Digital stuff except Movies.

No, I'm not. How much more is that a month?
