What's new in January on Netflix Canada, Shomi, CraveTV?

January 19, 2015 - 11:15 AM

A monthly look at what's scheduled to be added to the catalogues of streaming services Netflix Canada, Shomi and CraveTV.


This week, Canadians can finally watch this year's Golden Globe winner for best TV comedy.

Well, at least Rogers and Shaw customers can.

"Transparent," which also snagged the best comedy actor award for lead Jeffrey Tambor, is available to stream starting Friday on Rogers and Shaw's Shomi.

The series, about an American family with a transgender parent, debuted on Amazon's Instant Video streaming service, which is not available in Canada.

A second season is expected to be released by Amazon in 2015 — and hopefully Shomi gets to stream it soon after.

CraveTV has every episode of great crime drama "The Wire" and even if you've seen it before, there's reason to watch again. CraveTV, only available to Bell, Bell Aliant, Telus and Eastlink TV customers, is streaming the remastered HD version of "The Wire," which first aired in fuzzy old-school standard definition.


Paul Thomas Anderson's "The Master," which was just added to Netflix Canada, is one of those love-it-or-hate it flicks.

Joaquin Phoenix, the late Philip Seymour Hoffman and Amy Adams all picked up Golden Globe and Oscar nominations for their performances. The film, about a troubled Second World War veteran (played by Phoenix) who is adrift in his post-war life until discovering a movement called "The Cause," has an 85 per cent rate of approval among critics on Rotten Tomatoes.

But plenty of viewers found it dreadfully boring, dull and pretentious.

Stream it and decide for yourself.

For a CanCon movie marathon, Shomi just added "Take this Waltz," directed by Sarah Polley and starring Michelle Williams, Seth Rogen and Sarah Silverman; Deepa Mehta's Oscar-nominated "Water"; and the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival opener "Score: A Hockey Musical."


Netflix's new original series, the "Shrek" spin-off "The Adventures of Puss in Boots," debuted this past Friday with five episodes to stream for the kiddies. Netflix plans to release more episodes later this year.

"Rio 2," which was released last spring and includes voice work by Jesse Eisenberg, Anne Hathaway, Jamie Foxx, Tracy Morgan and Leslie Mann, was also recently added to Netflix.
