Update (December 20, 2021)

IST 10:35 am: Social media and community forums are now spewed with reports from Shaw subscribers who note that the cable and TV service is down and not working for them.

@ShawInfo Shaw cable I’m so sick of constant cable outages. Really I pay $100 bucks a month for almost daily outages lately. Not acceptable! And yes I reset my box, hdmi and modem. It’s still giving me three dots like it’s thinking!!

Is anyone else in the greater Vancouver area experiencing an outage of Shaw Cable services Man shrugging.. nobody got back to me.
