Warm Up Your Holidays With Shaw's Fire Log Channel

Christmas favourites return to Shaw and Shaw Direct

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Dec. 10, 2009) - Whether decking the halls or rockin' around the Christmas tree, Shaw (TSX:SJR.B) (NYSE:SJR) customers will enjoy the magic of television with the return of holiday classics on Shaw and Shaw Direct throughout the Christmas season.

Viewers can cozy up in front of their televisions and enjoy the warmth of a natural, flickering fire, complete with crackling sounds on the Shaw Fire Log Channel. Shaw's holiday programming wouldn't be complete without the Shaw Christmas Tree, a 50-foot Colorado Spruce magnificently decorated with more than 6,000 multi-coloured light bulbs and hundreds of festive ornaments.

"Every year we hear wonderful stories from our viewers about our Fire Log and how it played a role in their holiday celebrations," said Peter Bissonnette, President, Shaw Communications. "For decades, families have opened their presents, hosted parties and even gotten engaged in front of our Fire Log. We're proud that this holiday classic has become a tradition in many homes."

Shaw customers will also be able to celebrate the holidays with Galaxie music. From now until January 3, three channels will offer full-time holiday music – Smooth Jazz Christmas, Franco Fête and Traditional Holiday. Other Galaxie channels will also feature holiday music in regular rotations. Seasonal programming can also be found on local Shaw TV channels and Shaw Direct 299.

Shaw's holiday programming is airing on several channels – check local listings for channels in your area.
