Streaming in Canada on Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV +, Crave, Netflix and PVOD [Jan. 3-9]

0


Every week, MobileSirop describes some of the most notable movies and TV shows that have recently hit Canadian streaming platforms.

Our “Streaming in Canada” section typically focuses on new content from Amazon Prime Video, Crave, and Netflix, but other services like Apple TV + and Disney + will be mentioned as appropriate. Premium video on demand (PVOD) platforms are also fair game, as movies continue to go digital early in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Finally, we will highlight shows or films made by Canadian companies, involving outstanding Canadian actors or film crew and / or which are filmed in Canada.
