Canada: Shaw direct streaming

FYI, the new Shaw Direct video on demand doesn't allow you to access a PPV channel over sat, it streams over the Internet connection. They recommend at least 5 mbps connection!

To me this is decieving, and customers could end up paying twice, once to shaw and once to their provider if they charge for usage.

I was told 2mbps, and the box checks it. We have one customer with it on our 3mbps plan.

VOD recommends 5mbps for hd content and 3mbps for sd content.
