Welcome to the November 27, 2023, edition of Watching This Week, the weekly newsletter from Where Can I Watch – covering the latest news on where TV shows and movies will be available in Canada.

This week, we update all of the Black Friday / Cyber Monday offers still available, plus The Daily Show now officially has a new home in Canada. That's after this week's listings.

What's new this week – November 27–December 3

Compiled from our monthly listings and/or any subsequent updates we've come across. We strive for accuracy but schedules may change without notice. Some series/seasons may have weekly rollouts; we won't list new episodes every week (though we may note significant episodes such as series finales). *An asterisk denotes programming added in past weeks that we've learned about (or has been rescheduled) since our last newsletter.

This week in deals

  • As mentioned last week, Black Friday / Cyber Monday deals from many streaming providers continue through at least today, though a few continue for a bit longer. Here are the useful ones we're aware of, some of which we've mentioned before. Unless noted, deals are available to new and at least some returning subscribers (but not current users). To our knowledge there are unfortunately no special deals on Netflix or Disney+.
    • Paramount+ – Save 50% on either standard or premium monthly plans for three months (promo monthly price starts at $4.99). Replaces an earlier offer only on the premium option. Ends Monday.
    • Prime Video Channels – Save 75% on most add-on channel options (like StackTV and Citytv+) for two months (promo monthly prices start at $1 each). Paramount+ is offering the same discount as direct subscriptions; some channels like Sportsnet have opted out entirely. End date not announced. Note there is no special discount available on Amazon Prime itself.
    • Crave / TSN / RDS – Save 40% on annual plans on the main Crave / TSN / RDS services for one year (promo annual prices start at $59.90 for Crave's basic ad-supported plan). Ends Tuesday at 11:59 p.m. Eastern. Does not include Starz or standalone TSN+ subscriptions.
    • BritBox – Pay $10 upfront for three months (regularly $9.99 per month). Ends Sunday, December 3 at 11:00 p.m. Eastern.
    • CBC Gem – Pay $1 per month for six months (regularly $4.99 per month) with promo code TRY6. Ends December 31 at 12:00 midnight Eastern (not 100% clear if that means the start or end of that day) or when code redeemed 40,000 times.
    • Also, while this isn't strictly TV-related... if you're not locked into a wireless contract and haven't looked at your plan recently, today wouldn't be a bad day to check out your options. Bring-your-own-phone plans with 50 GB in monthly data, plus unlimited talk and text, are available across Canada from Koodo, Virgin Plus, Fido, and Freedom for as low as $34 per month. Some retailers are offering unadvertised options that are even cheaper. However, today (Monday) may be the last day for these offers. For better or worse, the best way to get the best offers is to be prepared to switch providers.
  • Hollywood Suite will be in free preview on all traditional TV providers from this Friday, December 1 through Friday, January 5. Recent programming of note includes British horror comedy series Wreck, the Max docuseries 100 Years of Warner Bros., and Slasher: Ripper, the fifth season of the horror anthology series.

Programming news

  • Not surprisingly, Comedy Central's The Daily Show will be moving to Paramount+ in Canada. Episodes will be available on an exclusive, albeit next-day, basis starting Tuesday, December 5, according to the streaming service's December listings we received this past week.
    TDS previously aired in Canada on CTV and CTV Comedy. It was, of course, affected by the writers' strike, but did not return to the Bell Media channels when it resumed on October 16, apparently due to the end of Bell's deal with the Paramount-owned network.
  • Again, we'll have our full December listings roundup in the next few days, but a few other highlights from what we've seen to date: Crave will have a Viaplay series about longtime Maple Leafs player Börje Salming, as well as animated sequel Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse. CBC Gem will be adding Paramount-produced Max series Station Eleven (based on a recent Canada Reads-nominated book) which, at least for the moment, will remain on Crave as well.
