Well, I finally decided to give CraveTV a chance. Their FireTV stick app is back up, so I have a way to watch it on my TV. Seems to work OK. Actually works on Linux too using Chrome, though my old Thinkpad X220 gets pretty hot while playing video. I'll see how I like the content during the trial. If I keep the subscription, I'm signed up for the 1 year $72 special.

I have no caps on my bandwidth, so I don't have to worry about their high data rate.

I prefer to run Linux on my computer tho i can dual boot to Windows 10. I run Linux distro Solus 3 with Gnome 3.
Crave TV never worked thru Linux on the computer but Netflix did. I am please to announce that i tried out CraveTV again today
and was surprised and happy to see that CraveTV now runs. I tried it in both Chrome(64.0.3282.119) and Firefox(58).
just thought to update folks incase they are like me that wanted to run CraveTV on Linux but were holding off subscribing until it did.

Does the Amazon Fire TV give you 5.1 sound with Crave?

Not sure. I only use the built in speakers on my cheap 40" TV. I can't find any indicator showing what sound output is available on Crave on the FireTV

Is anyone else having trouble with the CraveTV website? When I try to open it, there is a very dark overlay with a white X in the top left corner. I can faintly see content underneath, but I can't click on anything. I can't even click the white X. I've tried clearing cookies, but that didn't help.

I'm using Chrome on Linux

I often see similar things with Chrome on Windows after the system resumes from standby. CraveTV logs me out but the player is too stupid to realize it and fails to put up an error message or even indicate that it's logged out. It just sits in a zombie state until I kill and restart the browser or reboot the system. Netflix sometimes does something similar but it usually puts up an error message and leaves the browser in a responsive state.

Rebooting didn't fix it. It did happen after I suspended the computer during playback. A well designed website wouldn't lock me out for more than I day because I closed the lid of my laptop during playback. Not that I expect anything well designed or implemented from Bell...

I've also seen CraveTV register the same device multiple times and refuse to play due to "too many devices." It won't play if third party cookies are disabled. There are a number of other security and privacy extensions that will stop it from playing or will prevent authorization. Browser updates will also break it occasionally (especially Firefox updates.) Who knows what they did, or failed to do, this time. It's just a bad implementation of a streaming service as can be seen from the amount of cross site scripting and other questionable practices in the design. My old standby was to try a different browser like Firefox but that stopped working and Internet Explorer is deprecated on Win10 so Chrome is the only one that works now.

Bosch season four will premiere Friday, April 13; Amazon Prime Video Greenlights Season Five of Bosch. The series is a global release and available on PrimeVideo.com for Prime Video members in more than 200 countries and territories.

Full Press Release

The first 3 seasons are available on both Amazon Canada and CraveTV, so CraveTV no longer has the exclusive Canadian rights. We'll see if CraveTV will show season 4 when they announce the April highlights around the end of March. If Bosch isn't on the April list, CraveTV subscribers will be out of luck.
