Streaming in Canada on Amazon’s Prime Video, Crave, Disney+ and Netflix (October 2–8)

Every week, MobileSyrup profiles some of the most notable films and TV shows that have recently hit Canadian streaming platforms.

Our Streaming in Canada column typically focuses on new content from Amazon Prime Video, Crave and Netflix, but also mentions other services such as Apple TV+ and Disney+ when appropriate. Premium video on demand (PVOD) platforms are also fair game as films continue to release early on digital.

Finally, we’ll highlight shows or movies produced by Canadian companies, featuring famous Canadian actors or crew, and/or filmed in Canada.
