Netflix will be Canada's only subscription TV service with first-run Disney movies


Canada frequently gets stiffed when it comes to premium streaming video, but it's about to catch a big break. Just like in the US (after 2016 when the deal kicks in), Netflix has landed a multi-year Canadian deal that will make it the only subscription TV service offering first-run Walt Disney Studios movies in the country. Disney-backed titles released from 2015 onward will hit Netflix Canada eight months after they've left theaters, faster than they've typically reached conventional pay TV. While the agreement still won't give Canucks all the Netflix content that their American neighbors enjoy, it will let them stream the latest Marvel or Pixar blockbuster without springing for a rental or The Movie Network.
