Streaming in Canada on Amazon Prime Video, Crave, Disney+ and Netflix [Dec. 19-25]

Every week, Mobile syrup rounds up some of the most notable movies and TV shows to recently hit Canadian streaming platforms.

Our “Streaming in Canada” column usually focuses on new content from Amazon Prime Video, Crave and Netflix, but other services like Apple TV+ and Disney+ are mentioned when relevant. Premium video on demand (PVOD) platforms are also fair game as movies continue to be digitized early amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Finally, we’ll highlight shows or movies that are made by Canadian companies, involve notable Canadian cast or crew, and/or are filmed in Canada.
