So our Netflix bill will go up 5% or more and that'll go to producing some type of content most people do not want to consume.  That would not be commercially successful without our money.

A ton of it will in some way, shape or form be broadcast via the CBC as exclusive content on their channels.

Know it all.

Fewer streaming services will be available “in Canada”. Will need to pay for a VPN to see the content you want

We were using our son's Netflix account for the last couple of years. Went to watch a show yesterday, and we got a message saying this household did not have a Netflix account. Then it said, "did we get it wrong? MMMM are you travelling? If so, we will send a code to your email and your account will be valid at this address for 14 days."

 

I assumed that would knock him off at his address for the 14 days. Guess I will have to pony up for my own account.


Life's a journey......so roll down the window and enjoy the breeze.

The government already took $100,000,000 from Google for sharing "news", and they want more?

I've noticed that since Rudy B. was turfed from the Knowledge Network, their program selection does not interest us nearly as much as it used to. I have to say, we're really not interested in indigenous programming. We used to watch Knowledge a lot, but not so much these days.

I too am disappointed by much of their programming these days.

It’s turning into the Indoctrination Network.

Corus lost a bunch of US channels to Rogers, and it is estimated Corus will see much less revenue (like $150 million) less per year because of the licensing loss.
