We're moving in and unpacking great stuff to watch – including exclusive series not available on other streaming services, celebrated Canadian content, human-curated collections, plus fun kids and family programming. And we know it's not just about the living room TV experience: shomi is accessible on the platforms Canadians want – tablet, mobile, online, Xbox 360, Apple TV, Chromecast, as well as set-top boxes for Rogers and Shaw TV subscribers; the service is also on offer to other distributors.

"The beta has been a huge success and we're excited to now bring it to all Canadians. We've taken the time to work out the kinks so members can enjoy a great user interface and viewing experience," said David Asch, Senior Vice President and General Manager, shomi. "We know more Canadians want the bleary-eyed but oh-so-satisfying experience of an epic entertainment binge, and that they want the freedom to choose how they access the service. This exciting next step gives them that opportunity and we're excited to share shomi with everyone."
From The Americans to Outlander and everything in Between, there's something for every Canadian on shomi. shomi has exclusive content deals for some of the most buzz-worthy and binge-able TV series being produced today. When we move in this summer, we're bringing the coolest shows – stuff the other guys don't have. Canadian exclusives such as Golden Globe®-winner Transparent, Mozart in the Jungle, and Catastrophe; exclusive day-and-date releases of hot new series including iZombie and multiple award-winning Jane The Virgin; top-notch Canadian content including Vikings, Rookie Blue, and Mr. D; and past-seasons of some of the most popular shows on television, featuring Modern Family and Sons of Anarchy – these are just a few of the series that call shomi home. Beyond TV binges, shomi offers hand-picked movie favourites plus great kids-and-family content, including Thomas and Friends, Blue's Clues, Johnny Test, Scooby Doo, and Boy Meets World.
