TORONTO, July 11, 2016 /CNW/ - Everyone loves a summer reading list, but if you're an entertainment lover like us, it's also time to sit back, relax, and press play. So how about . . . drum roll, please . . . a shomi Summer Streaming List? shomi has your entertainment covered this summer with stories about Scottish time travel, KGB sleeper spies, hacking attacks on corporate America, not-so-simple romantic comedies, Viking raiders, and much more. Whether you're stuck in holiday traffic or sitting on the dock of the bay, shomi makes sure your summer hours are spent right – enjoying the most talked-about and acclaimed TV series.

"The summer reading list takes me back to the days of sandy beach towels and bestselling novels. But nowadays, my shrinking window of "me time" means that getting lost in a great paperback is often in my rear-view mirror. That's okay, though—life evolves—but technology now allows us to keep busy folks close to amazing storytelling. Like a book list, shomi's Summer Streaming List is a hand-picked lineup of our must-watch shows to scratch that itch for amazing comedy, drama, and summer thrills," said Marni Shulman, shomi's Head of Content and Programming.

The shomi Summer Streaming List offers a selection of standout titles guaranteed to keep everyone happily streaming during the dog days of summer. shomi members can check out this exclusive collection that brings together the best in TV, featuring Outlander, The Americans, Mr. Robot, UnREAL, You're the Worst, Vikings, Shameless, Mozart in the Jungle, The Last Man on Earth, and Catastrophe.    

shomi is also getting social with its Summer Streaming List, partnering with social media influencers to launch the shomi Streaming Club. The club will feature series from the Summer Streaming List and offer super-fan insight and a chance to connect about the shows as you binge through the seasons. Check out shomi's Facebook Event Page to pick your series and join the conversation with some of Canada's up-and-coming social media voices.

The shomi Streaming Club will wrap with a party, with the influencers inviting club members to Facebook Live meet-ups to chat it up over a summer bevvy and share experiences of bingeing the shows.
