    This looks like the US Netflix as those Superman movies were never on the Canadian Netflix.

    Do not want any more Gilmore Girls — last episodes were not as good — also why do we have different films and series episodes in Canada than the Us — we pay the same amount if not more — it should be universal in North America. At times I feel like cancelling my membership were it not for my grandchildren.

    So many titles I don’t even care about.

    Seriously thinking of saying bye, bye Netflix. As the previous commenter said we pay the same as the US. Yet we get all the garbage leftovers………….

    Please tell me WHY? Why is there a difference in programming between Canada and the U.S.?

  6. Summer • March 23, 2017 @ 10:03 PM

    I like knowing what to catch before they’re gone and I’m happy to say, most of these I don’t care about. Can’t wait to see what the new shows are though, and I’m looking forward to more seasons of The Queen and Stranger Things!

    Glad I’m not the only one who’s pissed about paying for a far worse version of netflix in Canada. Look at the extravagant list of shows and movies leaving US netflix compared to the pitiful Canadian list.
    If netflix doesn’t smarten up and make it universal amongst all countries, then Canadians will switch over to Kodi for good. Why would we pay more than our neighbor’s to the south for crappier service; seriously, I barely use netflix anymore and have been thinking of cancelling for a while now.

    I’m extremely impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your blog.

    Netflix Canada has Buffy (and Angel) right now. Since they’re only listed as going away in the US, presumably we Canadians get to keep them.

    This stuff isn’t Netflix’s fault. For example, if some competing streaming service pays whoever owns Buffy more money than Netflix is willing to, they’ll get it and Netflix will lose it. If that streaming service isn’t available in Canada, then we in Canada may get to keep it. Sometimes it’s good that we’re different countries!

    I for one am very happy with Netflix Canada.
