Netflix launches in Canada
Queen’s University film and media studies professor Sidneyeve Matrix is available to talk about the launch of Netflix in Canada.
“Streaming video is hot. As Netflix arrives in Canada this week, speculation circulates about whether it will be a cable TV and DVD killer. Subscribing for less than $10 per month gets you unlimited TV shows and movies streamed through your laptop, console, web-enabled Blu-ray player, even your smartphone. Though choice of programming is limited, the appeal of streaming video services like Netflix is the convenience factor. Two possible drawbacks are the facts that it is a bandwidth pig and there is no news or sports,” says Professor Matrix, who is an expert in technology and digital culture.
