If you want an easy work around simply tunnel any of your IPTV traffic through a VPN provider.

I would also suggest contacting CRTC or any other organization you can, as currently there is no legislation allowing them to filter or rate limit any IP's.

I also reside in Calgary, and have tunneled all my traffic through a VPN successfully. All IPTV services are working using this method.

Best of luck folks

If ive a vpn Service how do I channel only the iptv traffic through that? Any help would be appreciated

Default @kondor

can you share how you set up the vpn to tunnel iptv traffic?

Also are you paying for a vpn service or doing off your router?

Just a heads, Shaw's regional services team has been notified and there is ticket open with now.

If you are looking for a quick and dirty method to segregate your home lan traffic and your MAG/IPTV traffic i would suggest the following:

Purchase a VPN service that supports OPENVPN. Then purchase a second router that supports an OPENVPN client. Such as the ASUS routers. They support this out of box.

Next plugin your new router into one of the ports on your existing router. Make sure when you setup the new router it uses your existing one as its next hop by setting your default gateway as the existing default gateway of your LAN. Plug something into your new router to see if you have internet connectivity. And verify everything is working correctly. DHCP, DNS etc...

Once this step is completed and working go to the routers menu and configure the openvpn client with your VPN service providors information.

Then plug your MAG/IPTV source into this router and voila your traffic is now segregated and encrypted over a VPN or your choice.

There are several other ways to achieve this as well. Using a older router that supports custom firmware DD-WRT. Flash it and it also supports OPENVPN clients.

Cheers!

Entirely up to you, i would suggest doing some reading on Reddit for best VPN providers, and make your choice from there.

Please look above this reply you will see a few suggestions i have thrown out there.

Yes i am paying for VPN service. It is worth getting regardless of what shaw is doing to cripple the traffic.

Care to share how you came to receive this news?

Thanks for the info!

The odds are astronomical, that all these services in different locations are suddenly affected on only one provider without someones manual intervention causing this on purpose. Many US ISP's are already doing the same, such as Comcast. I am willing to bet this doesn't get "resolved".
