I wonder if this will have any kind of impact on Netflix?
I doubt it. I took a quick look at the horror genre in Netflix and it's not even close. Real horror fans certainly aren't getting their fix from Netflix. (I'm not a horror fan, so I'm just going by the titles.) Netflix seems to carry more mainstream titles.

It might have an effect on The Cult Movie Network, which is a Canadian company that is only available on MTS TV AFAIK, but does have a streaming service for the rest of the country.

Here is the official press release from Oct. 20:

Shudder Canada Launches
SHUDDER’s growing library of curated horror is available ad-free and for unlimited viewing on Shudder’s website, mobile apps for iOS and Android, Chromecast, Apple TV, and the Roku platform with a free one week-trial or $4.99 monthly/ $49.99 yearly membership, and more platforms being added in the months after launch.
The price is in Canadian dollars. My guess is there is no GST/HST since they are a foreign internet service like Netflix. The Twitter account in post 1 is very active so you can ask them if you really want to be sure.

The eight-episode Sky original production, A Discovery of Witches, will make its debut in the U.S. and Canada on a date to be confirmed, with all episodes available simultaneously on both Sundance Now and Shudder, marking the first partnership of this kind for the two SVOD services. SundanceTV has also acquired second window linear rights to the series. (Source) No mention of linear TV rights in Canada.

Keep in mind that second window can be anytime from after the season airs completely to a year later. AMC Networks owns Sundance Now, Shudder and SundanceTV. So they might air the series after it finishes on the streaming services (8 weeks) or they may give the streaming services about a year for the exclusive before it airs on SundanceTV.

I don't know if Shudder's deal for the Canadian rights gives them an exclusive first window or if it's only for the streaming rights and a Canadian network could pick up the linear rights.
