Is there a reason HBO / Crave isn't broadcasting Game Theory with Bomani Jones on Sunday nights after John Oliver? I thought HBO Canada and the US had like-for-like programming when it came to original series?

Generally, the agreement for HBO and HBO Max content only covers scripted series produced by Warner. Outside productions (which would include Game Theory), documentaries, talk shows and specials are added on a case-by-case basis.

Bell Media posted on The Lede that King Richard begins streaming on Crave on Friday, March 25. The movie, starring Will Smith as the father of Venus and Serena Williams, will premiere on Crave 1 on Saturday at 9 PM ET, with multiple airings in the following week.

I use Crave on my Samsung smart tv and on my Android phone. On the Samsung tv, the listing for the film Flashback (premiered this past weekend) only shows the French version available, but when I check my phone's Crave app, it shows both French and English. Is there a reason for the difference?

Some programming is licensed differently for mobile devices and other streaming devices that use larger screens such as TVs. It's also possible that it's an error or another company has the English streaming rights for TVs.

I found that Crave also plays only the French version on Roku and Amazon Fire TV, but English on a PC browser.
Perhaps a tech mix-up. I have used the Contact Us page at Crave for other complaints but they rarely reply to them.
I am just going to cast the movie from my phone Crave app to my Chromecast on my TV as my workaround.

Chromecast may be blocked on the phone app and browser as well. Phones that have an HDMI connector may also block the content on the port. They seem to have that stuff fairly well worked out technically. It's too bad the customer streaning and viewing experience, and value for the money end of it isn't as well done.

Sounds like a glitch in the apps on those platforms or maybe something in the way the shows are categorized. Try https://twitter.com/CraveHelp/with_replies . They are usually pretty good for followup.
