In Canada there are three major cable providers: Bell, Telus, and Shaw. They all offer similar services, an array of channel packages, PVR and On-Demand services, but their services have always been dependent of a monthly fee for basic cable, until now.
Bell and Shaw are both launching streaming services, Bell with Crave TV and Shaw with Shomi. Both will offer a service similar to Netflix, where TV shows and movies will stream over the internet to computers, tablets, and TVs.
Are cable providers in your area starting to offer the streaming services? Is this a service you would be interested in? If you’ve tried it, how did you like it?
