About This Site

Where Can I Watch is a web publication intended to help Canadian media consumers to find out where (and when) they can find the programming they want, helping them work through the confusion of the current media landscape.

This site is written and produced by me, Joshua Gorner. My main job is as a software developer, but I've long had an interest in the Canadian media industry, and this is intended as an outlet for that interest.

As of this writing, this site is being run on an experimental basis, as I determine whether I can make it self-sustaining.

For now, if you've found this site useful and would like to support our hosting and maintenance costs, you can make a one-time contribution here:

Contact Us

If you have any comments or questions, please email us at hello@wherecaniwatch.ca. Please note that WCIW does not have any connection to any broadcaster or streaming company, studio, or personnel, and we will not respond to or forward any messages attempting to contact such parties. Please note as well that as this is currently a one-person side project, we may not be able to respond immediately, or in all cases.

Other resources

This site does not claim to be a comprehensive directory of every TV program that might be available in Canada, and (especially as this is a small operation) we cannot guarantee that every listing will be 100% up to date.

If you can't find a program here, or if you have difficulty verifying availability, there are a few other sites with searchable databases, like FindTV and JustWatch, and even the Apple TV app, that may be able to help you. (We don't specifically endorse them or vouch for their completeness either, but they can be useful in some cases.)

If you've consulted these above and you're still uncertain about whether a show is available in Canada, please feel free to contact us at the email address above – we can't guarantee we can investigate every request, but we'll do what we can.

Disclosures

I (Joshua) do not, and I do not currently intend to, work for any media company or retailer whose products / services are discussed on this site. Apart from incidental affiliate links (see below), I do not and will not accept any payment in exchange for discussing or promoting media-related products and services in editorial content on this site; any advertisements will be clearly marked and/or separated.

I have some investments in index funds which themselves hold – among their many publicly-traded holdings – shares of various Canadian and international media, telecommunications, technology, and retail companies whose products could be discussed on this site. However, there is no single such company that makes up more than 1.25% of my overall holdings. Moreover, I do not currently hold any positions in such companies directly. It is theoretically possible that my posts (and the actions that readers may take on them) could influence these companies' performance and stock prices – but even if they did, I believe the impact on my investments would be negligible.

Posts on this site may include affiliate links. If you click one of these links and make a qualifying purchase, we may receive an affiliate commission (i.e., earn money) for that purchase, which helps us to cover the costs of hosting and maintaining this site. Affiliate programs we may use include, without limitation:

  • the Associates Program operated by Amazon.com, Inc. and its affiliated companies.

We try our best not to have the availability or benefits of affiliate links affect which products or programs we discuss or link to - that is, we will try not to link to something solely because of an affiliate relationship, or fail to discuss or link to other options because we don't have such a relationship. That said, for physical items like DVDs, we tend to focus on retailer(s) with which we have affiliate relationships rather than list every single possible retailer.

In any event, this is currently a one-person operation, so updates may be sporadic and feedback regarding possible oversights is welcome (at the email address above).
