  1. Same here. I was looking forward to watching Letterkenney but it wasn’t being shown. Big fail in this household. I’ll go back to watching YouTube, which has some surprisingly great content and Telus includes it on basic cable!

  2. Actually after being initially skeptical, Crave is not that bad and in fact, a better deal than Netflix who don’t show successful movies for 1-2 years and don’t have that great of a selection of series. The advantages Crave has is it gets highly rated movies usually within 6 mos. of theatres and series from Showtime, Starz and HBO which Americans have to subscribe to separately and Netflix will never show in North America. That means great series like Ray Donovan, True Detective and Billions (to name a few) which are not part of Netflix.
