Canada: Shaw launches BlueSky TV
January 13, 2017
Shaw Communications has unveiled Shaw BlueSky TV, a new premium television product for Canadians.
“Powered by Comcast’s next generation X1 platform, Shaw BlueSky TV leverages the strength of our network to make this new television experience possible for Shaw customers,” said Brad Shaw, CEO of Shaw Communications. “We are proud to be the first in Canada to pioneer Comcast’s ground-breaking technology and to be their first international partner.”
“With features like the voice remote and advanced search, X1 has given Comcast customers a completely different video and entertainment experience than what they’re used to in the home,” said Tony Werner, President, Technology and Product, Comcast Cable. “We’ve seen a tremendous response from millions of customers in the US and we’re excited Shaw’s customers will soon experience the same game-changing TV platform.”
“By making it easier and more enjoyable for our customers, their families and friends to connect to the sports, shows, and movies they love, Shaw BlueSky TV sets the highest standard for Canadian television viewing,” Shaw added.
Shaw BlueSky TV is available immediately for Shaw customers in Calgary, and will launch in additional markets within Shaw’s footprint in the coming months. Including WideOpen Internet 150, BlueSky TV is available for C$99.90 per month for the first 12 months as part of a two-year ValuePlan.
