Learn About Billing

We make it easy to pay your bill.

The day you have your system installed becomes your billing date. Each month on that date, we'll send you a bill outlining your programming, Pay Per View movies and events, installation charges or other fees.

This section will tell you everything you need to know about your Shaw Direct bill and our billing procedures.

Bill Explainer

While we strive to make our bill easy to read and understand, you may have questions regarding your statement. Our bill explainer should answer them. It outlines what you'll find in each section of your bill.

Learn about fees

Not sure what that charge is on your Shaw Direct bill? Read on. We explain all the different types of fees you may see on your Shaw Direct bill.

Pay Per View and programming

Charges for your programming package appear under the heading Entertainment Services.

Instant Pay Per View charges for movies or events will appear on your bill the month after you watch them. You can see the program title and price and the date ordered. To ensure your privacy, adult programming is labelled Pay Per View programming.

If you choose to order your Pay Per View by talking to a Customer Service Representative you'll be charged a $3 ordering fee, on top of the price of the movie or event. These charges will appear on your bill as Pay Per View Order.

To save paying these administrative handling fees, we recommend you use Instant Pay Per View ordering. Every Shaw Direct customer can do this with the remote control. Customers with a 300-, 400-, 500-, and 600-series receiver can order IPPV with their remote. We tell you all about it in our Pay Per View section of this website.

Multi-Receiver Fee

Customers who have two or more receivers in their homes will be charged a Multi-Receiver Fee of $6.05 plus tax.

If you subscribe to certain English or Bilingual programming packages, this fee is waived, so it can be worth your while to upgrade!

It will show up on your account as Multi-Receiver Fee.

Multi-Receiver Fee information

Single-Receiver Warranty Fee

Customers with no more than one receiver can enjoy the benefits of a limited lifetime warranty with the Single-Receiver Warranty for only $2.53 per month.

Seasonal Disconnect

Going on holidays? You can temporarily disconnect and reconnect your service at no charge, provided you give us instructions to reconnect on a date that is within six (6) months from the date you request the disconnection. If you do not provide us with a reconnect date or the date of reactivation is greater then six (6) months, then at the time of reactivation, you'll be charged a reactivation fee of $30. Unfortunately, you cannot seasonally disconnect if you owe more than $100 or have an unpaid bill that is more than 30-days overdue and is greater than $25.00.

Late payment fees

Shaw Direct charges late payment fees on past due balances. Two per cent of the balance will be charged when your account is more than 30 days late. You'll see the fees on your third bill, 60 days after the original bill is due.

Accounts that are more than 60 days overdue will be charged a $20 processing fee in addition to the two per cent per month in late fees. This fee covers our processing costs for delinquent accounts. All of our fees comply with Canadian regulated accounting principles.

Want to get your payment to us quickly to avoid these late fees?

Call us at 1.888.554.7827 to pay with a major credit card and your account will be credited instantly. Or, submit payments through your local Western Union office. The fund transfer also occurs almost instantly, although there will be additional fees from Western Union to use this service. You'll need to present your Shaw Direct bill.
