It’s not enough to have a high-quality, tech-ridden home theater setup. The equipment is one thing. The programming is another. The more options you have to watch, arguably, the better. Especially in a multi-person household.
Here is a quick list of the best home theater streaming services we think are worth a look!
Apple TV+ in Canada features high-quality original content with some of the biggest stars in Hollywood. From The Morning Show to Dickinson and others, not to mention their growing film selection, at $5.99/month this is a no-brainer.
Crave is Bell TV’s streaming service. Crave has some of the best dramas of the past 20 years, including HBO, Showtime, and Canadian content originals like Letterkenny. If you have a Bell subscription on your 43” 1080P TV, Crave is absolutely worth the perusal! $9.99/month gets you Crave’s basic plan.
Disney+ in Canada is not just Walt Disney content. You also get access to Marvel Studios, Pixar, LucasFilm, National Geographic, and others – including over 30 seasons of The Simpsons! In Canada, the monthly subscription is set at $8.99.
CBC Gem generated a lot of steam for itself in the pandemic era, with new classics like The Great Canadian Baking Show being seen by the millions. CBC Gem carries a lot of TV comedies, miniseries, and films – all Canadian. You also get some French-language programming and some BBC series. A premium membership is only $4.99 monthly and the basic is free.
Netflix Canada is must-have. There are no ifs, ands, or buts. If you have a home theater TV, most people would expect Netflix to be on it. They have plenty of TV, films, and documentaries. Thousands of hours are added every month. Costs vary between $9.99 and $18.99, with basic to premium plans available.
If you love British TV – a la BBC, ITV, etc. – you can find all of it on BritBox. Launched in 2018, this is the largest collection of British TV in Canada. You have everything from nostalgic classics like Faulty Towers to recent episodes of Doctor Who. $8.99/month is the cost.
Amazon Prime in Canada does not get its fair attention but it carries equally prestigious series, films, and documentaries as any other streaming service. Must-sees include Downton Abbey, The Man In The High Castle, and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. To watch, it’s $7.99/month or is included alongside any Amazon Prime membership.
