NFL Sunday Ticket Deluxe


For the ultimate football fan, check out the NFL Sunday Ticket Deluxe package from Shaw Direct! You can enjoy up to 14 games every Sunday for the entire regular NFL season, plus you’ll get access to RedZone HD, NFL Sunday Ticket Online, and the Shaw Go NFL Sunday Ticket app!

This year, we’re thrilled to announce that we are carrying 14 HD channels for NFL Sunday Ticket, which means you can catch all of the action so clearly, you might think you’re actually there.

RedZone HD is a channel produced by the NFL Network, which keeps fans up-to-date in real time. It switches from game to game as soon as a team goes inside of the 20-yard line (or, the “redzone”), so you can catch the most crucial plays as they happen.

NFL Sunday Ticket Online allows you to watch your favourite teams, regardless of where you are as long as you have a computer and Internet access. You will get all games in HD, full DVR controls, picture-in-picture viewing, player statistics, and more. You just need to ask for an access code when you subscribe to NFL Sunday Ticket, and then register for an account through the NFL’s website.

Not at home, and don’t have access to a computer? No problem; the Shaw Go NFL Sunday Ticket app has you covered. If you have an iPad or Android device, you’ll still be able to enjoy every play.

You’ll receive all of this for $50.24 (taxes extra) per month for the full NFL season. Wondering what you’ll need to enjoy this great package? You will need a 600-series receiver (the HDDSR 600, HDDSR 605, or HDPVR 630), as well as an updated xKu LNBF installed on your dish. If you’re not sure what kind of equipment you have, follow the instructions here to find out. If you need any upgrades, contact us for more information.


NBA League Pass on Shaw Go

app01Are you a basketball fanatic? Are you not always able to watch your favourite teams play because you’re commuting, away from home, or on the road? If this is you, we’ve got great news: We are excited to announce the launch of NBA League Pass on Shaw Go, available for all Shaw Direct customers who subscribe to NBA League Pass! This great app is a new way to experience your NBA subscription on your iOS (Apple) or Android device for customers who subscribe to NBA League Pass. Combining a live stream of games, along with a portal for scores and game schedules, the NBA League Pass app on Shaw Go promises the most interactive and complete NBA viewing experience.

If you don’t already have NBA League Pass as part of your programming package, all you need is a subscription to either HD Sports or HD Combo. Once you’ve taken care of this, you can contact us by calling in, emailing, or messaging us on Twitter or Facebook to get your redemption code for the app.

online01After getting a redemption code from us, visit the NBA League Pass page to register for an account so you can view content on the app. There will be a form to fill out with a username, password, and your personal details on the left, and then an area to enter the redemption code that you got from us on the right. Enter this, click “Check,” and then when you’re done the rest of the form, click “Submit.”

Now you can download the app to your favourite mobile devices. If you use Android, you can get the app here. If you use Apple, it can be downloaded here. The app will work on app02version 2.2 of Android and up, and on the iPhone 3GS and up, any iPad, or third generation iPod Touch and up with iOS 5.0 and later.

Once you launch the app, you’ll be taken to a login page where you can enter the account information that you just set up on the NBA League Pass page.


You can scroll through the schedule day-by-day, or click on the date at the top of the screen to select a specific date from the popup calendar. For games that have already aired, you’ll see the option to watch the game replay, while for games that are currently airing, you’ll see the option to view the live game.

Bear in mind that, as with many sports, blackout
restrictions can apply. If you try to watch a game that was not available in your area, you will see an error message appear on your screen.

When you select a game to watch, you can skip ahead (only if the game has already aired), skip back 30 seconds, pause the game, adjust the volume, or enter full screen mode. Games are available to view for 48 hours, after which point the video will be removed.


Pressing the “widget” symbol in the top right-side of the screen will take you to the settings menu. Here you can choose whether or not the scores display in the schedule menu for past and live games, view the FAQ, terms of service and privacy policy, and sign in or out.

Content will be available and updated on a daily basis until the end of the 2012-2013 season.  This will include every regular season and all-star NBA game. Don’t miss out on all of the action!


Shaw Go Movie Central App

For those who love the convenience of TV-on-the-go, we’re proud to announce the launch of our new Shaw Go Movie Central app! This provides Shaw Direct customers who subscribe to Movie Central with the latest HBO and Movie Central content to enjoy anyplace, anytime.

The app is currently available for Apple iOS devices, so you can get it for your iPhone 3, 4, or 5, your iPad 2 or the new iPad, and on any iPod Touch device. You can download it for free from Apple here. We know a lot of you love Android, so rest assured that we are looking at developing the app for other devices in the future.

To login, all you need is a ShawDirect.ca Self Serve account, and subscription to our Movies West package. If you are interested in subscribing to it, let us know and we can help you out.

The app features layered navigation, which is perfect for easily swiping though all of your viewing choices with the touch of a finger. It also provides smart search (it predicts what you might be looking for to speed things up), video bookmarking (you can stop what you’re watching and start it up in the same spot later), and intelligent streaming (you get the best possible video quality based on your connection speed). You can check out a detailed description of all the features and how to use the app here.

There are two other cool features that we really liked: If you use Apple TV, AirPlay lets you stream Movie Central content from the app directly to your TV, and you can let your friends and followers know what you’re watching by sharing to Facebook and Twitter!

At this point, we’ve got more than 670 titles available, which works out to more than 600 hours of content. This includes great shows like Game of Thrones, True Blood, and Boardwalk Empire, and popular movies like The Iron Lady, J. Edgar, and The Artist.

Whether you’re travelling within Canada, waiting for a bus, or on your break at work, you can get caught up on your favourite shows. And this is only the first of many apps by Shaw Go to come; stay tuned for more!
