CraveTV has a web interface that should work for Windows 10. I think they also wrote a special app for Windows 8 using the Windows 8 app store.

Just checked the Win10 store. There is an app but about 2/3 of the comments say it doesn't work. I assume it has a browser interface as well. Has anyone used it with Firefox, Chrome, IE or Edge?

I contacted LG TV and they told me that the Crave TV app would not be added to their smart TV's. Crave TV also cannot be accessed through Bell 6400 receivers. I guess I will not be trying the one month free trial.

I watch it using Apple TV 3. Works great. I'm current on Windows 10. Seems to work fine on Internet Explorer, Edge and Firefox, but I haven't watched it there for any amount of time.
I use the Internet Explorer browser interface (cravetv.ca) regularly for managing My Cravings (favorites).
Firefox requires an Adobe flash player install and Edge requires activation of the embedded flash player.
I have used Crave with the chrome browser in the past but today I can't even sign-in.

Thanks for the info. Flash is an issue. Support for Flash may have already been discontinued in Chrome and end of support is scheduled for Firefox. Even Adobe is making noises about walking away from Flash. I uninstalled it on all my systems but had to reinstall it for Shomi. It looks like it's required for CraveTV as well. The rest of the world is moving to HTML5. I hope these companies adopt the new HTML5 standard soon.

CraveTV and MGM Announce Deal to License Iconic James Bond Catalogue in Canada

CraveTV is now streaming the 007 Collection–spanning more than 50 years and all six James Bond actors—from Connery to Craig. The expansive collection starts with the 1962 debut film, Dr. No, and also includes the global box office hit Casino Royale (2006), as well as the latest Bond adventure Spectre, which joins the collection in 2017.

Comment: This seems a little out of character for CraveTV, which has stuck to TV content so far. I wonder if shomi going down the tubes means that CraveTV will expand into more movies.

TMN just aired all the bond movies so it's more likely due to a rerelease of the movies on video. I wouldn't be surprised if we saw more of this due to Bell owning TMN.

Following the Nov. 20 premiere of THE AFFAIR on CraveTV, subscribers can look forward to upcoming all-new seasons of SHOWTIME series BILLIONS (Feb. 19 at 10 p.m. ET), DICE, EPISODES, and RAY DONOVAN. Brand-new SHOWTIME series premiering on CraveTV in 2017 include the greatly anticipated David Lynch drama TWIN PEAKS, the dramedy I’M DYING UP HERE, created by Canadian Jim Carrey, and limited series GUERILLA, starring Idris Elba. Also coming to CraveTV are new seasons of HOMELAND (Season 5) and MASTERS OF SEX (Season 4).
