Streaming questions?

1. Does Crave work while in the U.S.? 2. How common is it for more than one service to be showing the same movie? Currently Prime and Netflix are both showing Terminator:Genisys

I did read somewhere, on someone complaining about Ignite/ROD not working in the US.. that they said that Crave & the bell apps did work in the US.

My understanding, is that NO they should not.
According to the website:
https://www.crave.ca/en/support/can-...JsIjoiZW4ifQ==
No.
(other than downloading first locally?)

The Bell Fibe app and Crave are 2 different services. Bell Fibe actually had a TV ad that said you could watch your recorded programs anywhere in the world.

Re movies - Here is U.S. article that shows the number of movies available on more than one service. Keep in mind that Canadian rights are different. For example in the U.S. Terminator:Genisys only streams on FX Now. www.justwatch.com is a handy site to find streaming content.

I realized that JustWatch gives a count of the number of titles for the services you select. I chose "Movies" and selected the various services.

Amazon 12,733
Netflix 3,858
Total 16,591
Combined Unique Titles 16,319
On Both 272
% of Netflix Movies on Amazon 7.05%

Just to clarify, programs recorded on a PVR device can be watched in other countries. Live TV, streaming and cloud PVR recordings can only be watched in Canada.

Crave should work only in Canada. You may be able to watch it in the states using VPN but I am not sure about that.

I am now in us. I think you can stream Crave, just like CP24, CBC, CTV, Etc. I tested Crave on web browser, go to crave.ca, login via service provider (Rogers in my case) and created a user profile, but since I did not subscribe to Crave, I cannot go on to watch anything.
