I've heard the same about Shaw. So what? Everyone has their preferences and minor complaints about the service. None of them are perfect and I have, at one time or another had all 3. Of them I prefer Telus but that's just me and I have complaints about them as well.

I have been waiting for 3 months for them to install the Fibre from the street to my house and can't get any info from them as to when they will get it done. (They have been out 4 times now)

Just record the show before hand then...

It's basically watching it "on demand" for free. Yes, it is aggravating. It is not going anywhere though.

Telus TV operates under the exact same principles as Shaw's offerings. If you do the exact same operation with Shaw(which you cannot currently since they don't off it yet), then it will behave the same.

The TV distributors do not make the rules for how the shows can be watched, the content providers do.

If you don't like it, express that to the networks, not the cable companies.

Ah, yes, the Restart "feature". Get used to it. It's the start of the next wave. Recording shows for later viewing will eventually be replaced with a "more robust" version of this. Because skipping ads isn't good.
Wealth without work. Pleasure without conscience. Knowledge without character. Commerce without morality. Science without humanity. Politics without principle. Your bias suits you.
