Winter TV 2015 ~ Where to Watch TV Shows Online in Canada


Welcome to 2015! A new year means a new listing for where to watch TV online, Winter style.

We have a lot of new and returning shows to look forward to this winter. I am particularly excited for new shows like Marvel's Agent Carter, Empire, Schitt's Creek, 12 Monkeys, Ascension and the The Book of Negros miniseries. There are also returning shows like Broadchurch Season 2, 19-2 Season 2, Fixer Upper Season 2, Bitten Season 2 (wow, that's a lot of second seasons!) and Glee's final season. We'll also have more reality TV including The Voice Season 8 and the epicness of Survivor which will enter it's 30th season.

If you want to hear more about the shows I'm excited for, check out my vlogs for New Shows Starting in January and Returning Shows Starting in January over at my YouTube channel. I do these previews monthly, so be sure the check back of TV Musings Playlist for more videos throughout the year.

This listing is shows that began as of January 2015 or have continued through the Fall of 2014. If there is an earlier show you are looking for, feel free to check the Fall 2014 TV Listing or Summer 2014 TV Listing. Online viewing has been pretty consistent recently of having only the most recent episode available online for 1 week after broadcast, with exceptions for Canadian series (or co-pros) like Haven, Lost Girl, and House of Bryan: In the Sticks which often have the full season (or series) available.

This list will be updated as new shows become available at their legitimate Canadian Broadcasters websites including CBC, CTV and CTV2, Global, CityTV, Space, Showcase, Slice, HGTV Canada, Food Network, Lifetime Canada, Discovery and History.

Can't find what you are looking for? Try the individual Canadian TV broadcasters websites video pages:

Sadly, there are always a handful of shows that are not available to watch online, such as Outlander which is one of my new faves, and if history repeats itself Supernatural, The Originals and The Walking Dead all fall into this category. The Biggest Loser S16 Glory Days is another one that's not online, having switched from CityTY to CTS. For these shows, you often have the option to buy via iTunes or at the Google Play Store. The big pay off there is: no commercials!

For online-only viewers, shows often are available for 1 week starting the day after they air, unless you have a cable subscription and can log into the TV station website. The exception to the rule is Canadian shows on specialty channels, which often have the entire season/series available online. Keep an eye on the shows you enjoy and plan your viewing accordingly :)

* A few online viewing options do not have a specific page for watching a singular show, but rather a video player for watching any of their offerings. In those cases I've put the link to the broadcasters website, as opposed to the show. Then either select the show if it's displayed prominently, or click their video library, select your show, the season and then the episode.
