  • Shaw Direct receiver energy information

    This page provides information about the energy efficiency of set-top box (STB) models that have been purchased by Shaw Direct since January 1, 2017. This page will be updated as Shaw Direct purchases and deploys new STB models. The information is provided by Shaw Direct pursuant to the Canadian Energy Efficiency Voluntary Agreement for Set-Top Boxes (CEEVA), to which Shaw is a signatory.

    Select your hardware model below to see details on the power consumption measured and reported for that equipment. The power measurements set out below represent the STBs generally configured as they are deployed on Shaw Direct’s network, measured in accordance with test procedures specified in the CEEVA. The energy use of an individual STB may vary.
