[BC] Will Shaw support the Wii U's TVii?

Sort of like a consolidated DVR feature. It claims that it will support all major cable providers in USA and Canada, but will Shaw support it?

Would really like a confirmation
The arris gateway is nice, but having access to the Wii U's gamepad for tv playback would be brilliant

Shaw won't have to support it. Per the article you linked it supports TiVo DVRs.

So if you have a TiVo, then you'll be able to use this feature. If you don't, you won't. Suggest you go purchase a TiVo if this is your thing.

Of course, the problem being that Shaw does not support CableCARD so you only get analog channels on TiVo. And Shaw just got rid of all analog channels except basic cable.

Actually - Shaw DOES support CableCARD. But only with their boxes (the new Motorola HD box, HD-PVR, and Gateway boxes all use CableCARDs).
