Where to watch your favourite shows & movies online
Find out which streaming services in Canada are showing your favourite titles.
There was a time when watching your favourite TV show or movie was dictated not by your desires, but by TV network schedules. There was the frustration of last-minute schedule changes, episodes being played out of order or a network refusing to play a show’s finale months after it aired overseas.
Or you wouldn’t even know where to watch as it was just nowhere to be found, as no network in Canada had grabbed the show or inexplicably held off from airing it.
Obviously streaming services changed the game, providing the entertainment people desire when they want it. You can log in to the likes of Netflix, Prime Video, Disney Plus, Paramount Plus or Apple TV Plus and watch a massive range of popular shows and movies at a reasonable price.
It’s not perfect though. There are plenty of shows without a local streaming home. Plus, some shows have different seasons on different platforms, while others are on multiple platforms because the rights holders like to share. Or a movie in a series may be on a certain platform, while the sequel is on another.
To help guide you through the confusion of where to watch your favourite TV shows and movies, we’ve pulled together a list of some of the most popular titles and outlined where they can be streamed in Canada. If you’re looking for a particular show or movie, or you just want to browse and see what’s available, check out the list below.
