Streaming in Canada on Prime Video, Apple TV+, Crave, Disney+, Netflix and Paramount+ [July 17-23]

Every week, MobileSyrup outlines some of the most notable movies and TV shows to hit Canadian streaming platforms recently.

Our ‘Streaming in Canada’ column generally focuses on new content from Amazon Prime Video, Crave and Netflix, but other services such as Apple TV+ and Disney+ are mentioned where relevant. Premium video-on-demand (PVOD) platforms are also fair game as movies continue to come early to digital.

Finally, we will highlight shows or films made by Canadian companies, involving notable Canadian cast or crew, and/or filmed in Canada.

Amazon Prime Video
