There are many online streaming sites globally, but most are not available in many countries due to restrictions. Some streaming platforms may be available, but the content you receive will be different from what others are getting from a different country.
In the US, you will experience an extensive library of content compared to what others are getting from the same site. And some of the sites you can’t access outside the USA, for example, if you live in Canada, you will need a VPN to access Peacock TV Canada.
Below are the best websites that are geo-restricted in Canada; you should definitely check them out!
Peacock TV is an American streaming platform that offers binge-worthy content to its viewers. Apart from great movies and iconic TV shows, you can also stream NBC hits, all the Peacock channels 24/7, and Telemundo news.
The shows and movies you can find on Peacock TV are:
- Brooklyn Nine-Nine
- This Is Us
- Hobbit Movies
- My Son
After enjoying the 7-day premium account for free, the Peacock Premium subscription pricing starts at $49.99/year, while the Peacock Premium Plus subscription costs $99.99/year.
Hulu ranks as one of the best streaming platforms. It offers a large variety of great content of both movies and shows, from old to up-to-date ones. But unfortunately, Hulu is not available outside the US. This means you won’t watch Hulu content when you are in Canada or anywhere else outside the USA.
As mentioned, Hulu consists of great movies and shows that you wouldn’t want to miss when in Canada. Some of these shows include:
- The resident
- The wrong Mans
- Castle Rock
- Future Man
Hulu pricing starts from 6.99$/month for the ad-supported plan and $12.99/month for Hulu with no ads. Also, Hulu has a plan consisting of Hulu +live TV, which goes for $64.99/month with ads and $70.99 without ads.
HBO Max may be associated with the popular films released during the last few months. The exclusive content has performed well enough to be the talk of everyone and leave Canadian viewers craving to access the shows. This, however, will continue to be the case because the agreements licensing deals in Canada are those from the previous deal with HBO before HBO Max’s launch.
HBO Max has a packed rich catalogue of new movies and shows. More than ten thousand hours’ worth of content is available for its esteemed viewers, most of whom are limited to the USA. The prices, however, may not be very convincing but are worth it. An ad-free subscription will cost you $15 a month but $5 less for one with four interrupted minutes every hour.
Some of the new streaks of movies and shows you will find are:
- The Suicide Squad 2021
- Friends 2021
- Raised by Wolves
- The Flight Attendant
- The Hobbit Trilogy
Falling under the same category, NBC, also known as the Peacock Network, is one of the best streaming sites Canadian viewers wish to have. This, again, is not possible as NBC has only a license for viewers in the USA. It retails at a favourable price of $5 for the package with ads and $10 for the premium account that runs ad-free. You can also subscribe using a PayPal gift card.
Unlike other television networks in the USA, NBC does not require you to have a cable connection. It is compatible with multiple smart TVs, phones and gaming consoles. It also gives users access to sports and news updates. Some of the best shows enlisted to NBC are:
- The Departure
- Save Me
- The Capture
Vudu is yet another geo-restricted streaming service and digital video store available only in the USA. It does not require you to have a subscription to enjoy content and thus is stocked with ads. The free access is not all; it allows you to rent programs you wish to watch for a given amount of time. Prices may differ according to the content selected. The rented programs are available to watch multiple times for a day.
However, it provides a vast library of content, old and new. Vudu can get enabled on all your devices through the Vudu app. Being a joint-venture of NBC Universe and WarnerMedia, it has access to many movies and shows to keep its users entertained. Some of the reputable movies available on Vudu are:
- Jungle Cruise
- No Time to Die
- 50 Shades of Grey
- Free Guy
Founded in 2015 and a subsidiary of Dish Network, Sling TV is one of the best American based streaming television services. It was the first app-based TV service that opened a world of content and TV broadcasts over the internet. The best plan for Sling TV is the Orange & Blue plan that offers almost 75 channels. In addition, the single profile can support up to four multiple streams.
A single subscription for this live TV starts from $35 for the least package and increases accordingly. It allows users to record up to fifty hours’ worth of content to watch in their free time. Sling’s parental control allows guardians to lock content based on their ratings. With access to channels such as ESPN, Nickelodeon and Plus Extras for various categories, movies and shows accessible are almost limitless.
These streaming sites are reputable in giving access to among the best content in the world. The only drawback is that the content gets restricted to only the USA. But, soon, some of these services will extend outside to other regions, as reported by most of them.
