    They used to do original programming (Continuum, Travelers, Lost Girl)...that's what I knew them from (and mis-remembered them as Showtime). But looking at Wikipedia, it looks like they stopped after 2017 (at which point Travelers moved to Netflix).

    Having cut the cable a while back I've been subsiding on Netflix and Prime. Netflix in Canada is one quarter of that in the US and Prime has one of the worst interfaces you can imagine. I used to think it was just my Vizio TV but I tried the Prime app and still can't navigate it easily. You can filter on TV shows and sort the newer ones to the top, but then they insist on showing you the stuff on other channels (not included with Prime), and if you filter on only Included with Prime then you can't sort to see the latest first. With Netflix I can see what's new this week, what's new next week.

    Anyhow, all that to say that I crave for Crave.

    The Prime iOS App has a little better interface. There's a "free to me" slider that I use, and if I find something to watch, I include it in my Watchlist, then watch on my Roku

    Thanks but that would not be in the neighborhood of being enough to make me switch.

    I gave up after about 15 minutes. Awful.

    That said, it's not like there's a lot of stuff on to watch instead, so I'll probably revisit it. But wow. Awful!

    On Prime go to the top of the screen you will see a menu select "free to me".

    Don't have that. Could be this is not available on Roku or maybe Prime in Canada doesn't haven't this.

    Man, I tried to watch this but it was so dreadful. A couple of people who used to be up and comers but never up and came (Brandon Fraser and Tom Welling), and a bunch of people who will never be mistaken for somebody who will ever up and come (some of whom had trouble speaking English, literally), in what appears to be as, ahem, professional as a community theater production. With a script that wouldn't have been out of place as one of those old Sci-Fi Originals. I barely made it past the opening credits (which were about ten minutes in).

    Eh, Smallville ran for a decade, and Brendan Fraser was a damn superstar for a while (granted, his peak was 20 years ago). I think they did OK.
