Canada Ready to Take Back Video Subscribers with shomi
Canadian pay-TV titans Rogers Communications and Shaw Communications have decided to team up to launch a new video-on-demand subscription service to help reclaim some of the lost video subscribers from companies like Netflix and Hulu. The streaming service is called, â€œshomi.â€
The new streaming service will reportedly have 340 different television series and over 1,200 movies available to stream on IP devices, and subscribers will have to pay close to $9 per month for premium videos.
Expected to launch in November, shomi will focus more on television shows and entertainment, with a lot of the same content thatâ€™s already on Netflix, like â€œSons of Anarchy.â€ But it will also have other shows, like the popular â€œSleepy Hollow,â€ and â€œModern Family.â€
Interestingly, Canadian media rules mandates that 30 percent of the content offered on the service has to be Canadian.
