Shomi streaming service now available to all Canadians


Starting today, every Canadian, regardless of internet provider, can subscribe to Shomi. Shomi is Rogers and Shaws response to Netflix and at first was exclusive to just Rogers customers. Now, after a bit of coercion from the CRTC, the co-owned streaming content provider has decided to expand it’s scope.

Shomi has fixed its bugs, and has a full list of content filled with acclaimed series to provide its users. It hopes to compete with Netflix, which more than 20% of Canadians subscribe to, and that number is growing. Some of the content that can be found on Shomi include Louie, Jane The Virgin, Sons of Anarchy, iZombie, Bob’s Burgers, Shameless, Scandal, Transparent, Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and many other acclaimed series and Movies.shomi-app_desktop-view_landing-page

The service costs $8.99 a month and is available on Android and iOS, as well as Apple TV, Chromecast, XBOX 360, and of course on the web. You can also try a free trial version for a month.

Bell’s own CraveTV is also looking to lift their restrictions as of next year, to compete with Netflix and Shomi.

    With no support for Xbox One. Windows Phone or Windows 10. I can’t use this well on my phone but I can on my pc via browser. There is no app on my lg smart tv. I tried the 30 day trial. I think I will wait to subscribe when they support my xbox one. Until then I don’t see myself sitting in front of my computer all that much. maybe I should by a 360 😀

      It would be a good idea to wait if you really one to use it on your Xbox One. Shomi certainly needs some upgrades lol but for TV shows, it’s much better compared to Netflix in Canada.
