The Roku is faster than the built in smart tv function and the remote is not line of sight, so much nicer than before.

By the way, if anyone needs the streaming site to get WJC games free, I can DM.

How are you watching it? When I had AppleTV+ it would sometimes come up on a free-trial to whatever premium channel it was on. But I've canceled AppleTV for now (until For All Mankind comes back).

I downloaded it, but I believe it's available through Crave.

It is a bit depressing but it’s a damn good show. Winslet nails her role.

When Outlander's next season comes out in March I'll finally be able to convince my better half to (temporarily) swap in Crave for Netflix; I'll look for it, then.

I find it odd how there are some shows available on multiple streaming services here, in Canada. I don't believe that was the case a year or two ago. Right now, for example, Superstore is available on both Netflix and Prime (although only one of them has the last season). Parks&Rec is also available on both (or at least it was, recently). The new FireTV 4K kinda tries to aggregate all the feeds but it often "finds" pay-per-view options on Amazon Prime which are available for free (or already paid-for) on other services. This was the main reason I wanted to get a ChromeCast with Google TV as, apparently, they do a good job of putting all available content in one place.

Yeah the content/streaming wars are firing up. Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Disney, Paramount Plus, Crave, etc etc.... And for sports, there are lots of options...UFC has their own service, WWE has their own service, Sportsnet and TSN have their own subscriptions, DAZN for NFL and other random stuff, NHL, MLB, etc.

I wouldn't be surprised if cable and satellite seize this opportunity and drop their prices a bit to actually be more affordable and bring people back.

I just find out that The Americans is on Disney. Always wanted to watch that show but missed my chance when they took it off Netflix or Prime. Pretty good so far.

You'll love it, especially because of the Russia ties and 80s technology. It's great.

Half way through the pilot my daughter asked me if *I* was a Russian sleeper agent (I was 12 when I left, so probably not -- or, at least I, haven't been activated yet).

You can't prove you're NOT a sleeper agent. Ahhhhh!

Finished Mare of Easttown. Great show, probably tried a little too hard to be depressing. Really enjoyed the dark comedy (mainly the interactions between Mare and her Mom). Really liked that it was nice and short at 7 episodes.

I've been re-watching Mrs. Maizel. I must have been falling asleep the first time because I have zero recollection of many scenes. Excellent show.
