Streaming in Canada on Amazon Prime Video, Crave, Disney+ and Netflix [Sept. 5-11]

Weekly, mobile syrup outlines some of the most notable movies 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 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 come to digital format early amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Lastly, we will highlight shows or movies made by Canadian companies, involving a notable Canadian cast or crew, and/or being filmed in Canada.
