« on: December 07, 2014, 01:27 pm »
Great news that Shaw Direct is finally starting to focus on expanding their lineup of multicultural channels.  I had suggested this to them in the past as the other cable and satellite providers offering these channels are charging crazy prices for them so more competition is always welcomed.
