Rogers Communications has announced that they will be closing Shomi, their film streaming service, on November 30th, 2016.

Frankly, i’m not that surprised. It had initially been a good service but the rotation of films slowed down and I rarely watched more than three films per month on the service over the spring and summer.

The remaining services, Netflix and CraveTV are a little less pitiful when it comes to content but i’m refusing to subscribe to anything less than a service like Netflix in the states. And the disproportionate monthly usage fees most of us Canadians are subjected too are a major turnoff as well so Shomi may not be the first to go.
