News about Discovery+ launching in Canada, "What Happened, Brittany Murphy", "Shetland", and more.
Kevin Can F**k Himself – yes, that seems to be the official title, asterisks and all – is a comedy-drama series starring Annie Murphy, best known for her role as Alexis Rose on Schitt's Creek, as a wife trying to break free from her seemingly sitcom-style life.
The series premiered in Canada on AMC on Sunday, June 20, 2021 with two back-to-back episodes starting at 9:00 p.m. EDT, with one new episode debuting in the same timeslot each Sunday thereafter until August 1. Episodes should be available on demand through most providers, such as through Rogers on Demand / Anyplace TV, for a limited time. Unfortunately, AMC's website and apps do not currently support Canadian provider authentication.
Additionally, AMC's streaming service AMC+ is now available in Canada as an $8.99 per month "channel" through Prime Video (which also requires an Amazon Prime subscription) and the Apple TV app (which does not require another subscription like Apple TV+), and
we've confirmed it includes access to Kevin Can F Himself. A 30-day free trial is AMC+ available through both Apple and Amazon. Note that some other programs available on AMC+ in the U.S. are not available here due to conflicting program rights.
The show premiered one week early of its TV premiere – on Sunday, June 13 – on AMC+ (as in "AMC Plus") in the United States, however the streaming service was not available in Canada at the time, finally launching on August 13, 2021.
Update (September 22, 2021): We were notified by a reader that Kevin Can F**k Himself disappeared from AMC+ in Canada sometime between September 19 and 22. Unfortunately we're not sure why this happened, and it's a bit surprising considering that the show was produced directly by AMC Studios, without any other distributors involved that we're aware of.
The only possibility we can think of is that AMC might have sold a second streaming window to another distributor – some AMC Networks programs have eventually found there way to services like CBC Gem after their original runs – but we're not aware of anything imminent for Kevin.
For now, unless you've already recorded the series to a PVR, the only authorized place to access the the series is through digital purchases, such as through the Apple TV / iTunes Store.
