Streaming Services in Canada: A Consolidated List

For Canadians, our options for streaming subscriptions and sites are very different from what you can get in the US, making it difficult sometimes to find what is available for us here. We have done the legwork for you and put together a list of streaming subscriptions and sites that have been verified available in Canada. We will start by listing the free sites, then paid subscriptions, then a breakdown of some of the different devices available for streaming. Please note: this page is not updated in real time and pricing/supported devices may not be up to date. 


FREE Sites to Stream Video in Canada (Legally and Without a TV Package) 

 There are plenty of the network channels that offer streaming on their websites, but not all are open to stream if you don’t have a cable/satellite package. We have sifted through as many as we could find to provide you only with the sites that offer full episodes to stream. Note that many of these services may also have apps available in the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. 


Paid Subscription Services 

Netflix is the most obvious choice when it comes to streaming subscriptions, but there are other options to supplement you Netflix account. Netflix is likely to always be a staple in any cord-cutter’s viewing list. Note in this list any service that says it support mobile phones and tablets includes Apple iOS devices and Android devices. If you have a Windows phone or tablet, be sure to check the devices list from provider website. When web browser is listed, this means on a windows or Mac computer. 

 Available on Chromecast, Samsung Smart TVs, Xbox One, Amazon Fire, Apple TV, Windows Phones and tablets, Android Phones and Tablets, iPhone and iPad, web browser, PS4, PS5
