Posted December 1, 2022 • Last updated December 21, 2022

What's new on Canadian streaming & TV in December 2022?

Here's what's new in December 2022, including "Glass Onion", "If These Walls Could Sing", "Three Pines", plenty of Christmas / holiday movies, and more.

We use affiliate links to help support the costs of hosting this website. If you make a purchase or sign up for a service using these links, we may earn an affiliate commission. Learn more here.

Before we get into our December listings, two quick mid-week notes:

  • In case you've missed it, we updated our Monday newsletter to note Bell Media's confirmation that Crave will no longer have new Showtime titles as of January, but will continue airing existing Showtime programs such as Billions while they remain in production. While we still expect future and library programming to go to Paramount+ in Canada, that service has not yet confirmed its plans.
  • Meanwhile, Paramount-owned free ad-supported streaming service Pluto TV soft-launched its full-fledged service in Canada yesterday (Nov. 30) ahead of its official launch today. While the service has quite a few channels already, some of the partners / programs on the American version of the service are absent, such as AMC Networks and the classic Jeopardy! channel (though there is a separate Game Show Central channel using programming from Sony's cable channel GSN).
    Also yesterday, Canada's national public broadcaster officially launched its FAST news channel, CBC News Explore, which is available for free on CBC Gem among other venues.

It's time for our monthly summary of notable new programming coming to streaming services and TV channels in Canada.

This is not intended as a complete list, but where practical we will provide links to fuller information. While we do mention a few reality and documentary shows and the like, our main focus is on notable scripted programming.

Scheduled release dates are those indicated by the providers and are subject to change. Prices are listed by WCIW for convenience, and are likewise subject to change. Listed prices do not include any applicable sales taxes, which vary by province. The web version of this post may be updated occasionally during the month, though we cannot commit to updating everything that might be added or changed.


Netflix costs between $5.99 and $20.99 per month in Canada, depending on the number of streams and picture quality you need.

Netflix Canada posts its monthly listings on social media, including Twitter and YouTube. Where necessary, we've cross-referenced against other sources.

Because of the sheer amount of content Netflix releases each month, we've typically been more judicious with the number of items listed compared to other services, so we encourage you to consult the full lists if you're waiting on a specific program.

New programs are normally released at 3:00 a.m. ET (midnight PT) on the date indicated, unless otherwise noted.
