Netflix partners with CBC to boost CanCon

We were thrilled when Netflix announced its Canadian launch back in September. Unfortunately, the films and TV shows available from the Internet subscription service were less impressive than those offered in the U.S. Now, Netflix has launched new licensing deals with CBC, Global TV, FreemantleMedia, All3Media and Maple Pictures that will see more Canadian content and better overall selection.

This means that new television programming, and previously unavailable seasons of The Tudors, Men With Brooms, The Republic of Doyle, Saturday Night Live, Kids in the Hall and Weeds, among others. So for those of us who already subscribe, there’s now something to watch other than season five of Bones for the third time. Not that we did that.
