Generally, I don't keep track of what's going on with Netflix programs and trying to sort out what's specific to Canada, so don't depend on me to post Netflix news. If you see something relevant to Canada, feel free to post it. Occasionally, I will post news items I come across.

The first season of Lifetime’s drama You will air as a Netflix original outside of the U.S. beginning Dec. 26. Starting with Season 2, Lifetime U.S. will drop the series to focus on movies and You will become a Netflix global original. (Deadline)

For those watching The Flash on Netflix Canada, a special Sunday night episode airs tonight in the US but it won't be on Netflix Canada until Tuesday. It's Part 1 of a 3-part crossover with Arrow (Mon night on Space) and Supergirl (Tues night on Showcase), so you'll want to either wait until Tuesday to watch all 3 (and record Arrow on Monday), or watch The Flash on The CW tonight if you can (and then Arrow on Mon and Supergirl on Tues).

Why does Netflix Canada wait 2 days for The Flash, but only 1 day for Riverdale? it would be a lot better if it were next-day.

...this is a signature...

My question is, if they were able to get the deal with CW to have some of their shows on there.. why is only The Flash the one which it posted pretty much 'live' vs the others are a season behind.

I have Netflix via a Roku stick+. Works fine. The Roku is plugged in to my AVR.

Started watching an episode of Travellers and noticed no sound. Clicked up arrow on the Roku remote and selected Audio settings. I saw I was set to 'Original English 5.1'. I tried 'Original English' and the sound came on.

Is this a Netflix thing or a Roku thing? If it is a Roku thing then I am posting in the wrong place I guess.

Netflix has cancelled Travelers after its third season. The series first launched on Canada’s Showcase in 2016, with Netflix handling international distribution. Netflix then took over as the sole production company for Season 3. (TVLine) All 3 seasons are available for streaming on Netflix Canada. Corus is still showing reruns on the first 2 seasons on Showcase, DejaView and ABC Spark.

Not surprising. It wasn't anything to go crazy about, but I kinda liked it.

Spider-Man 3 is on Netflix, as is Spider Man Homecoming 1 and 2 for now. I’ve noticed Spider-Man 1, 2 and 3 are all on Canadian Prime Video as they have movies on there now. Not sure how long they have had them now as I’m new to it. I’m watching Spider-Man (1) as I type on Prime.You can subscribe for $7.99/month and you get a 1 month free trial for anyone interested in that too. It sure has gotten better !

At Pinewood Toronto Studios, Netflix will also lease four sound stages and adjacent office space comprising a total footprint of approximately 84,580 square feet.

Wow! Combined with the recent CBS announcement in Mississauga (6 sound stages, production offices and other support facilities), that's a lot of capacity ... and in this case - existing capacity.

We are going to need more film studios and workers.

Perhaps CBC will have to start making productions in the USA to find available space!
