Welcome to the January 8, 2024, 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.

As with our December 25 newsletter, this is an abbreviated edition prepared in advance, due to pre-planned travel. We intend to resume our regular newsletter format next Monday.
