News from early December 2022, including an update on "Pennyworth" on Showcase, and CBC's winter programming plans.
Welcome to the September 13, 2021 edition of This Week in WCIW, the weekly newsletter from Where Can I Watch – covering the latest news on where TV shows and movies will be available in Canada.
As of today, we've semi-officially launched the Canadian movie streaming rights database we mentioned a couple of months ago. It's still – and probably will always be – a work in progress, but we've spent some time researching and filling out data for movies released since 2018, and we're hopeful it'll be a useful resource for those trying to quickly figure out where a movie is, how long it'll probably be there, and where it'll be next.
Access to this database is an exclusive perk for our paid subscribers – which is $3 a month, or $20 per year, though as a reader recently pointed out, it may be even less after rebates offered by some credit card companies (though we can't independently confirm how long this rebate will be available). More information on our subscription options is available here. And, once again, our thanks to those who are already supporting the site in this way.
Not much recent programming news – the fall TV season is just getting underway, and most of the major announcements about that were made a while ago.
We have gotten some questions recently about updates on the second seasons of Evil and The Other Two, which remain unavailable in Canada. Unfortunately, there isn't any more news on either series yet, but we're continuing to look into it, and will post updates if and when they become available.
We recently noticed that, for Canadians attempting to access DiscoveryPlus.com, the address now attempts to redirect to DiscoveryPlus.ca – a website that, at least at this moment, is not yet responding. Still, it seems to be a strong indication that we're fairly close to Discovery+ launching in Canada. As noted a few weeks ago, Discovery Inc. announced that the service would be launching in Canada before the end of this year.
Recent updates on WCIW
We've added posts about Come from Away, which is now available on Apple TV+, and Paw Patrol: The Movie, which became available for premium at-home rental in Canada this past Thursday (but remains unavailable on Paramount+ here).
