MORE OPTIONS FOR CANADIAN TV VIEWERS COMING SOON
TV viewers in Canada will soon have another streaming option on their plate and it looks alot like a cable package.
Amazon says it plans to make its Amazon Channels platform available “soon” in Canada as an add on to its existing Prime Video subscription.
The service will offer 12 channels of on-demand and live television that customers will be able to purchase on an a-la-carte basis. Many of them, including Nickelodeon and Super Channel, haven’t been available to stream in the past.
The selection also features channels such as Starz and OutTV, but it’s missing several other popular pay-TV networks, including HBO Canada and Showtime.
Amazon Channels lands in Canada as the market becomes increasingly saturated with alternatives to cable and satellite.
In addition to Netflix and Bell’s Crave streaming platforms, media giants Disney and Apple plan to launch their own streaming services.
